Music at Stamplorations ... I am Guest Designer ...
Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week has started well. I'm back with a second post today, which is unusual for me at the beginning of the month! I have been playing at the Stamplorations Stamps Challenge as often as I could since I found them so when I saw that one of my July entries is a July top pick I was completely and totally over the moon, lol, and I spent the day telling DH that lol!
Of course I love winning challenge prizes but I get incredibly chuffed when picked as a top pick by a challenge Design Team and owner/s. The lovely Shery contacted me and asked me if I would like to be a GDT of course I said yes, well I am so chuffed that I got asked. Once I found out the details of this challenge I started looking through my stash and stamps and here is the card I was inspired to create …
Thankfully for me I needed a birthday card for mum: her birthday is in a couple of weeks
We're hoping to see her before then and I can give this to her so I didn't have to worry about depth
Much fun was had created this and a lot of old and new stash used!
I tried the no line technique colouring this image
I used my Stamplorations stamps make wonderful sentiments
That shabby detail close up
A final look,
I love this La Blanche stamp because I can create so many different looks with just one stamp!
Luckily for me this also fits these Challenges
