People at Fashionable Stamping Challenges

Hi there, its time for a new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and this time around we want to see a person or people. You do need to use a rubber or clear stamp though, no digis allowed! As always our lucky winner will receive a $20 voucher to spend at  Flonzcraft!

I began with a brusho background made using shades of blue and green  and a little bleach through a harlequin stencil. Once dry I stamped and embossed the flourishes (from Chocolate Baroque) with versamark and embossed with Black WOW EP, adding some highlights with a White Graph'It Shake Pen.

The focal image is also from Chocolate Baroque although sadly its now been retired. I stamped and embossed on white card, masked the edges and then sprinkled on my brushos and spritzed with water. I used bleach to remove the colour from the faces and clothes and to add highlights to the bikes.

To finish off I embossed some die cut letters with Black WOW EP to spell out the word 'Dad'

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Allsorts: Vintage
Cut it up: Ties for fathers day
Crafters Cafe: one for the boys
Crafty Cardmakers: shaped cards
Mod Squad: Masculine
Sister Act: anything goes
Sweet Stampin: Fathers Day or a special man

If you've got a minute., pop over and have a look at all the inspiration from my very talented DT sisters! Thanks for visiting today
