Build it up at Fashionable Stamping challenges

Good morning folks, we've got a new challenge starting at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and our lovely teamie Avril has picked the theme of 'Build it up' by using at least 3 stamps. As always there is a fab prize of a $20 voucher from our generous sponsor Flonzcraft so ink up those stamps and play along for a chance to win. My teamies have some gorgeous projects to inspire you so pop along to the challenge blog and have peep.

For my project I've made a little tag wallet using lots of different stamps, from the Little Lady set and also Flower Kingdom. I stamped the images and watercoloured them with distress markers. I added lots of texture with stencils, Modelling Paste and Sparkle Medium. Once the ink was dry I added more distress ink to the backgorund and stamped some text and embossed with white EP

To finish the project I added some vintage photo distress ink around the edges and used a hitch fastener to close the wallet, topped with some seambinding ribbon and a paper flower.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Alphabet Challenge: z is for zesty
Crafty Creations: for the birds
Crafty Ribbons: anything goes with ribbon
Really Reasonable Ribbon: anything but a card plus ribbon
The Crafting Cafe: embossing
Victorine Originals: gift card holder

Thanks so much for popping by, have a good day
