Cinnibar



We are going off  to the  'Orient ', for our new theme at  Fashionable Stamping Challenges.
As always the winner will receive a prize from our sponsor, so please pop over for all the details and see  the fantastic projects  my team mates have been making.  Remember we like to see stamping on your project.

For my visit to the Orient I used a stamp that I have had  for quite a while' Cinnibar'  from Stampington.
I used a metal embossing powder before colouring with watercolours. Layered up with papers, the base card is a bit brighter in real life. All the  extra shading is Peeled Paint distress ink.

Thank you for stopping by, your comments are always appreciated.
