Its Here!!! The Stampman challenge blg is now OPEN!

Woo Hoo!! We're finally open and the theme is ANYTHING GOES chosen by me as

I want to see your array of styles, colours, anythng you like. You'll find us HERE so pop over and show us ya stuff! There are a few pointers to the challenge listed below...

  • You can make any creation of your choice so long as it meets the challenge set.
  • You may enter more than once if your projects are entirely different i.e 1 card, 1 tag, 1 atc etc
  • You can combine with other challenges
  • Please link to your project not your entire blog
  • You can use any products so long as you follow the challenge
  • Have fun fun fun!!!

Here's what I made. I've used Aspects of Design Starburst Fairies which is stamped and embossed with moonglow midnight teal embossing powder. The fairies were not embossed to give an mpresson of them being further away. The background is made with adirondack inks in cool peri, pool, sailboat blue and pitch black by using a brayer to put the cool peri all over the card then using a corner of a piece of kitchen roll to gently swipe the darker colours in from one edge giving a graduated effect. The card its mounted on is actually holographic silver though it looks white in the pic.

Hope you pop over to the blog and join in!

Would like to enter this into:

Flutterby Wednesday - 3 or more layers
