Try Something New

Hello everyone!

 At Fashionable Stamping Challenges we are featuring as our challenge....

'Something New' 

Come and show us new craft items in use, a new technique or something to symbolise a New Year resolution?

I decided to use some new stamps I got for Christmas. So I began by decorating a tag with some Picket Fence DP through a stencil and when dry I dabbed some Evergreen Bough and Gathered Twigs DI over the tag

Here you can see the Picket Fence DP through the Clockwork Stencil

When the tag was coloured I began to use the stamps, randomly scattered over the tag in Potting Soil Archival ink and Evergreen Bough DI

I stamped 'Life is Good' in Potting Soil archival ink and dabed Gathwered Twigs DI over the card. I then stuck it onto a copper filligree metal embelishment that I used to decorate the tag with.

I added some copper coloured metal flowers

The main stamp decoration is a Gibson Girl stamp from Flonzcraft

I finished the tag with some thick hemp string that I tied into a bow and secured with a copper brad

I would love it if you came over to see what the rest of the team have made to inspire you at Fashionable Stamping Challenges!

Remember we are a stamping challenge so please feature a stamped focal image on your creation.
You could be the winner of $20 to spend at Flonzcraft Stamps! And of course you could be picked as one of our Catwalk Spotlights!
Hope to see you there!
