Craft Stamper July Challenge - Take a Stamp

Morning all, seems ages since I last blogged, probably because it is!

It's challenge time over at Craft Stamper magazine again, and this month is a nice easy one - Take a stamp.  That's any stamp you like.  I've actually used several here, and some beautiful Indigoblu paper's. 

Let me explain..

Firstly I took some paper from the IndigoBlu range. This was given a light wash of watered down 'Townhouse Teal' paint, and then stamped with Giant Peony, in versafine, and in flitterglu and megaflakes.


The tag was stamped with Limor Webber's rugged edges, Lotus flower, and IndigoBlu's dinkie Dragonfly, and also given a wash of colour.  I then flaked around the edge of the tag to give a border.  More paper was torn and paintwashed.

I cut out the butterflies from the Vintage Memories paper pack, and the post mark, and started to layer up the card.

Some tiny puzzle pieces and wooden flowers were painted in townhouse teal and hot cocoa paints, and adhered.

I then stamped and cut out poppies from Giant Poppy, and Poppycock stamp sets, and layered them.  It's all mounted on a white card background.


I hope this gives you a little inspiration, come and join us at Craft Stamper this month, show us your work and you could win prizes! All you have to do is follow the guidelines HERE, it's simple!
