Words at Fashionable Stamping Challenges

Hi there, its time for a new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping challenges and this time around our theme is all about words chosen by my lovely teamie Laura so we want to see you use words as the focal point of your project, don't forget we're a stamping challenge too so no digistamps allowed.
Our lucky winner will receive a $20 voucher to spend at Flonzcraft and the DT will be choosing their Top 3 too!

For my project I've made a little wall hanging using stamps from Indigo Blu. I've recycled some corrugated card, giving it a bit of interest by dry brushing with some white gesso and adding a little gold gilding wax too.

I've framed this fabulous stamp (from Enjoy life) with an mdf frame. Both have a background created with acrylic paint and worn lipstick distress ink. I've stamped the frame with a lovely fabric texture stamp from Sarah's Choice. The flowers and butterfly were Indigo Blu freebies from a magazine stamped with Potting Soil Archival ink and coloured with distress markers.

I've added lace, ribbon, a little bark heart and a polymer clay heart gilded with some flitter glu and gilding flakes. To finish off i've added some raffia spirals.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges;
Creative Corner: anything but a card
Fab'n'Funky: shabby chic
Indigo Blu: Frame it
In the Pink: ribbons and bows
Simon says Stamp: use a stamp
Wonderful Wednesday: anything goes

Well i hope you're having a good weekend. The weather is turning here and its a lot cooler so perfect crafting weather. If you need some inspiration, do pop over to the challenge blog and check out my teamies gorgeous projects.
