Dream it



Today sees the start of a new challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and this month our theme is Resist Stamping. As always there is a generous prize of a $20 shopping voucher from FlonzCraft.

To create my card I started by stamping the lovely Penny Black Poppy stamp with versafine and embossing with detail clear powder. I then sponged DI's fossilised amber, picked raspberry and mowed lawn over the embossed background. The sentiment is from Chocolate Baroque stamped with black archival and finally some black pearls.

I do hope you will pop over the the challenge blog and see the super inspiration from my teamies and also join in with our challenge this month.

And I would love to pop over to the Snippets Playground with this one.

Hello, Brenda! Your card is gorgeous! Beautiful embossed-resist background and colours! I used some of the beautiful ribbon I won from you last fall! I used it on my butterfly gift bag and tag posted today - not sure if you saw it yet - no need to leave a comment just wanted you to know I finally used some of your prize! I am still hoarding the other goodies that I won from you! Yes I have a problem! It's hard for me to use the nice stuff!

Gerrina said...
