Can you resist?

Hello my lovelies, hope you're having a good weekend. Its chaos here as DS is decorating his bedroom so the whole house is a mess lol. We've got a fab new challenge starting at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and this time around, Fliss has chosen the theme of 'Can you Resist' so we want to see you use a resist technique and of course rubber/clear stamps too. As always there is a fab prize from our generous sponsor Flonzcraft so don't miss out!

I recently treated myself to some new Lavinia stamps so I decided to give them an airing for this project. I used glossy card stamped in the main image.Next I stamped the leaves with versamark and then applied Memento inks in Bamboo leaves and Tangelo I then overstamped with the same Memento inks and added a few purple leaves here and there. I stamped the smaller leaves with Memento Tuxedo Black. The image was coloured with Graph'It markers and once all the inks were dry I gave it a bit of a polish. I matted it one some black card and added a punched border and lots of iridescent gems along the tom. To finish off I added a seam binding bow and a gorgeous sparkly button.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Card Crafters Circle: Portrat of a woman
Creative Fingers: anything goes
Lavinia Stamps: add a flower
Rhedd and Rosie's: for the ladies
Wags'n'Whiskers: ribbons and bows

If you've got a minute pop over and have a look at the gorgeous projects created by my lovely DT sisters. Thanks so much for popping by today, hope to see you again soon
