Embellish It With The Stampman

Hello lovely Crafters. Another week nearly done and another year older for me. Yes it's my Birthday old!!!!

It's also time for a new theme over at the Stampman Challenge Blog and this week we are asking you to "Embellish It" and that's anything you like so we're hoping to see all sorts of lovely projects.

For my DT project I made a background with Dusty Concord and Rusty Hinge Distress Inks by splatting them on my craft mat, spraying with water and then swooshing the card round in the ink. I daubed the dried card with some starburst stains for my first bit of bling.

The panels of the butterfly have been clear embossed to create a tile effect and I stamped the butterfly again with the distress inks onto Shrink plastic for the little ribbon embellishment.

Some left over card made the strip at the bottom which has been embellished with some card candy.

Don't forget to pop over to see what the rest of the team have created and as always there is a £10 Voucher on offer for the winner to spend at the new Stampman online shop.

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