Craft Stamper - Take it, Make It Challenge Six: Halfway Reminder






Hi everyone, catching up a bit late with my tag for
but better late than never :-)!

I've used a Tando flower stencil to create my graduation this time spritzed with Dylusions inks in dark to light and the turned the stencil over and used it like a stamp. I also outlined the flowers in black and white pens and stamped the background with Kaisercraft texture stamps: postmarks and dictionary.

I moulded a clay butterfly and it's been painted with Decoart paints with a bit of black frantage embossing powder over the top.

Hope you'll join in with the challenge, there's a great prize on offer and superb inspiration from my team mates.

Back soon,

Fabulous rich flame colours, and that butterfly looks completely amazing. Love the gilding on the lettering too... Hope you had a great time with your Craft Barn class - another in the offing, maybe?!

Hi Chris! It was great to hear from you and I wanted to thank you so much for stopping by my blog and leaving such a sweet message. I figured I'd pop over to your blog and see what lovelies you've been working on. I love this challenge tag you've done. Very cool background and doodled flowers! That butterfly is also cute with the pearl body and "fly" across the bottom. Your previous Penny Black tag is absolutely darling! Love the little face on that little girl and how you've colored the tag. So pretty! <3 Candy
