I have been lucky enough to win some challenges and blog candy here and there in blog land.
Here is my showcase of things I have made with my winnings.
Spellbinder tags won from SheetLoad
This is a thank you card made with a Flourishes Damask background stamp that was part of some Blog Candy won from Linda's Blog
This is Hero Arts stamp Garden Roses K5056 and is so beautiful to use.White cardstock was embossed using Cuttlebug & Swiss Dots folder. Oval spellbinder die used to cut & emboss the oval. The embossing was not very obvious, so I highlighted the edge with a fine gold sticker. Hero Arts Garden Roses was heat embossed with fine gold and then coloured in with watercolour pencils and highlighted with chalk. Gold organza ribbon was placed across middle of background and stamped image attached using mounting tape. Corners were highlighted with 'left over' bits from a sticker sheet. Whole thing was layered on pink cardstock. Matching envelope is stamped with black STAZON and chalked. HeroArts Blog here
here is another card using the same stamp - this time stamped with STAZON and coloured with chalks
I recently won Set 2 of Flourishes A Year in Flowers here and have been having 'fun' colouring them in - I can see lots of uses for these images and am very tempted to buy the rest of the year ;-)
