Old Favourites at Fashionable Stamping Challenges

Good morning my lovelies, its time for a new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and our theme this time around is 'Old Favourites' so we want you to use your old favourite stamps! We've got a fab prize up for grabs, our lucky winner will receive a $20 voucher from our lovely sponsors Flonzcraft. Don't forget though, we're a stamping challenge so you have to use rubber/clear stamps to enter, no digi stamps allowed!

For my DT project, I've altered a bottle and used some of my old favourite stamps, the stamps used are from Butterfly Poppy Collage, an a4 stamp set from Chocolate Baroque.

I began by coating my bottle with Maimeri Matte Gel Medium, once that was dry I applied Rock Candy Crackle paint and left it to dry.I coloured the crackled bottle with alcohol inks and applied silver gilding wax to the edges. I gave it all another coat of Maimeri Matte Gel and while it was wet sprinkled on some glamour dust.

I die cut loads of flowers from crinoline fabric and some white polkadot tulle. I coloured the fabric with distress reinkers and layered them up, adding buttons in the centres. I used ribbon around the top and added some pearl trim.

The butterflies were stamped on acetate with versamark and embossed with white embossing powder. I stuck the butterflies on double sided adhesive sheet and then glittered the back before cutting them out and attaching them with silicone glue.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:

Allsorts: no squares allowed
Crafty Cardmakers: make your own  background
Decorate to Celebrate: anything goes
Deep Ocean: flowers
Retro Rubber: May flowers

Thanks for visiting today, hope to see you again soon
