Sentimental at Fashionable Stamping Challenges

Hello there my lovelies, I hope you're having a good weekend so far. We've got a new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and our theme, chosen by the lovely Esther  is 'Sentimental'. We're sponsored by the generous Leo, from Flonzcraft who has a $20 voucher to offer our lucky winner so ink up those stamps and get sentimental with us!


Having watched Hels on C&C a couple of weeks ago making such beautiful artwork with beeswax,  I had to have  a rummage around my craftroom for my beeswax, dust off my melting pot and have a go.  I also found my art parts and decided to make a little frame. I began by covering all the elements with some gorgeous 7 Gypsies paper and then giving it a coat of beeswax. While the beeswax was warm I stamped an Indigo Blu harlequin stamp in to it for some texture. Once it was cool i added some treasure gold to highlight the patter.

I stamped the sentiment (from Paper Artsy) on tissue with red brilliance ink and also stamped the rooftop silhouette (from Urban Landscapes Borders 1 from Flonzcraft) with black stazon. I applied them to the base with more beeswax and then set too making the flowers from 7 Gypsies paper. The flowers and some die cut leaves also got the beeswax and treasure gold treatment before I put it all together. I addded some smokey grey gems, a black seambinding bow and a seambinding ribbon topped off with a mother of pearl button and some twine.

I'm entering this in the following challenges:
Craft Room Challenge: so sentimental
Creative Card Crew: handmade flowers
One Crazy Stamper: black white plus one
Papercrafting Journey: use a sentiment
Tuesday Throwdown: focus on the sentiment

Have a happy Sunday folks and thanks for popping by. If you've got a few minutes, do have a peek at my teamies gorgeous creations, they are such a talented bunch :-)
