One Stop Craft Challenge

I'm afraid that this has had to be an automatic post because I'm away from the Internet at the moment (and away from my crafty things - so I'm probably driving myself and everyone around me completely mad!). Rest assured that I will be busy popping over to every one's blogs and publishing your comments on here the minute I get back.

The challenge this week at One Stop Craft Challenge has been set by Maggie, and her chosen theme is:


I've taken a step away from the cutie images again and pulled out a Kodomo stamp which I coloured with different Whispers brush strokes pens, stamped the image and the added clear embossing powder to heat emboss the colours in place. I haven't tried this type of stamping before and I really do like the results.

DCWV Pocket Full of Posies Papers
Kodomo Autumn Flowers Stamp Set
Clear Embossing powder (I hope)
HOTP Cardmakers Ribbons Earth Palette
Darice Charmed Embellishments

Tim Holtz Broken China Distress Ink

Papermania Ribbon brads

Gorgeous Sharon, Love the colours you've used and I love the effect. I haven't done this for ages, you might just have inspired me to get my collage stamp sets out.
I left you an award on my blog - I'm passing it on to my new playmates at Colour Create.
hugs Heather xx
