Morning everyone, hard to believe it's our last challenges of the year at We Love Stamping and Stamping Sensations where our themes are Winter Flowers and Foliage and Favourite Colours along with the A/G option. Prizes this month come from AALL and Create and Highlight Crafts, some gorgeous stamps from both.
Above my WLS share using AALL and Create Crystal Wood (864), coloured in with Ecoline pens, stencilling in the background using Folium (155) then pinecones in the top corners from Pinecone (389), the word Winter from Seasons (455) with a sentiment from one of my own Christmas set's, now back in stock at Create and Craft.
Deciding on my SS make was difficult as I like so many colours (except blue to which I have an aversion!!), it's probably better to say I like colour combinations, some that seem a bit offbeat to the more conventional crafter. So I decided to go with a couple of favourite Oxides which I frequently combine, Cracked Pistachio and Wilted Violet.
My starting point was the new Tag it Yourself dies from AALL and Create which I am still loving, both the distressed design and size which is larger than many tag dies. After splodging ink and water from acetate I stamped the images which come from Flower Trio (924), Anemone (980) and Forget Me Not (896). The little circles with flowers are one of the stamps on Anemone, stamped and masked to allow the larger flowers to be behind. Words from my favourite sentiment set Power of the Word (756), paper pieced flowers stamped on inky offcuts as are the sentiments so popping over to the Snippets Playground with this one (no snippet photo I'm afraid - not that organised!).
We are really looking forward to seeing your creations this month so hope you can find time amidst all the pre Christmas activities to join in.
