Who wants a laugh ?


A very good morning to you all, it's April fools day !!!!!!

And new challenge time at Stampalot and Penny Black at Allsorts plus a bit of extra fun as Stampalot Challenge is one year old today........how that year has flown by.

So the themes ? At Stampalot we have not only the monthly challenge where this month Lady Stampalot herself - Janice, has chosen the theme of "Women and Fashion"......but a bit of fun as well and of course that means extra prizes for you lucky peeps. And you can also have a real laugh at the DT's expense along the way..............so do hop over to the challenge blog to see what going on.

I used Hero Arts CG273 Silhouette Women as the focal point of my card, some brayering is soft colours to create a bit of misty atmosphere and what I like to call my Art Impression worker stamps to build up the scene.

And at Penny Black at Allsorts this theme is a colour combo "Black, White plus one"......the 'one' is your choice.

I have used one of the new stamps Penny Black 4182K Butterfly Suite as the main images, stamped onto a background created with acrylic pain, I stamped the flower and butterflies a second time, coloured with Aquamarkers and decoupaged. The base card is stamped with Hero Arts CG222 Music Background using Hero chalk ink soft blossom.

Wow, Brenda, these are both stunning!! Love the classy ladies stamp you used for the first one, and of course I've been in love with that PB stamp you used. Love the pink accent color you chose for the black and white and that cord and the gorgeous flowers look just amazing! Going to my local stamp store (which is actually one hours drive away from me) tomorrow and hoping that they have that stamp in stock!
