Full House at Fashionable Stamping Challenges!

Hi there, we've got a fab BINGO challenge for you this time at Fashionable Stamping Challenges, my teamie Sue has set the challenge and her bingo board is full of such gorgeous things I couldn't just settle for a line, I went for a full house lol. As always there is a fabby prize for our  winner from Marina, our generous sponsor at Cottage Crafts!


I've used a backing paper from 'Vintage Shabby' paper stack, distressed with a craft knife and a little tea dye distress ink and matted it on some blue tissue paper. I then added some texure using a Crafters Workshop template (mini mosaic) and Magi-tac paste dusted with silver mica powder. You can see the effect a bit better in this pic



The ribbon, lace, butterfly and glimmer misted doiley are all from my stash. The silver embellie over the bow is from a broken necklace. The flowers were made using more blue tissue paper, die cut with tattered florals and buttons in the centre. The metal frame for the sentiment is from my stash and I stamped the sentiment on a scrap of vellum. I also added lots of faux pearls with my viva pearl pen.

The focal image is a Kanban stamp, coloured with promarkers and coloursoft pencils and cut out. I stitched the lace up bodice with silver thread, it look me ages as the blinking thread kept getting in a HUGE knot for some reason.



I'm entering my card in the following challenges:
Fairy Fun Fridays: distress it
I love promarkers: ribbons and bows
Paper Shelter: anything goes
Passion for Promarkers: Mum or female relative
Sweet Stamps: Monochromatic
The Pink Elephant: Lets see those layers
Top Tip Tuesday: Stitches real or faux
Totally Gorjuss: anything goes with a button

thanks for visiting today
hugs

  12. Wow Claire! This is amazing! I've been admiring this on the FSC blog since it first appeared. The textured background is gorgeous and your coloured on the stamped image is awesome as it looks so 3D.
    I've had the same problem with metallic thread which I think is because it's a bit textured and catches on the bumps. Worth it though as the stitching is a great finishing touch.
