Before I add my entry to this challenge, in my last post I put that it was my first challenge win. I was wrong, I forgot that I won the Trimcraft ATC challenge ages ago. I'm getting old, my memory is going! The Stamp Something Challenge is 'Something with Showers or Flowers'. I've made a large card with flowery umbrellas. I stamped some umbrellas all over Anna Griffin dp in black. I then stamped extra umbrellas that I decoupaged onto 2 of them, giving them a curve. The topper is the same stamp, coloured a bit more, layered onto white card stamped with a flower stamp in green, and glittered, then onto brown paper put through the cuttlebug, sanded, then inked in red over the top. Added a ribbon. Card, ribbons, gems and a sentiment 'Under the weather' added on right hand side. This card was done as an experiment really, playing about with different techniques, then all put together.
I'm a 44 year old mum of 2, a daughter of 19 and a son of 8. I haven't worked since having my daughter as I became ill and was diagnosed with lupus 14 years ago. I wanted a hobby that would take my mind off everything, so crafting was suggested to me. I started in March/April 2008 and have been having fun learning lots of techniques ever since.
