The Stampman Challenge-Flowers For Mother's Day

Hello lovely Bloggers. I hope you haven't been blown away by the awful wind over the last few days. Thank goodness it's dropped a bit today and we have some lovely warm sunshine.

It's a Training Day for us today, the kids are at home more than school at the minute. It's the Easter Hols in 3 weeks time!!!! Anyway, we've had a lovely walk into town this morning and a wander round the shops and a look at all the swans and ducks on the river so I thought I'd just get a bit of blogging done while I rest my feet.

Here's my DT piece for the new challenge over at The Stampman. This time Vix is hosting and she has the theme of Florals with Mothers Day just around the corner.

I made the background using Moonglow mica powder which is applied after swiping versamark liberally over watercolour paper and then stamping into it and finally clear embossing the whole thing. You can see full instructions for this technique here.

My clear embossing powder has been contaminated with bits of glitter but in this case I quite like the effect it gives.

The flowers are Aspects of Design Funky Flowers painted with Cosmic Shimmer watercolours and layered up and the others are white embossed on heat proof acetate.

As always there are some stunning creations from all the Design Team so it's well worth popping over to have a look and there is a £10 Voucher from The Stampman for the challenge winner so why don't you have a go.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend whatever you are up too.
