Stepping out

Our new Challenge  over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges is-
'To die For'.
We would like you to use die cuts on your entries, also please remember we like to see stamping as well. I hope you will pop over for all the details and see what we have been making.

This small hanging was made as a gift for a crafting friends Birthday. I hope it has reached its destination by now.
 First of all the compressed paper block was sprayed using Dylusions inks, then stamped  front and back using a variety of stamps and masks. The picture on the left shows the underside. Which wasn't over stamped as much as the front.





The words by Wendy Vechi on the back say, -
"I had no clue
that one tiny
Rubber Stamp Purchase
would lead to this"...
True for many of us crafters I think.
The die cuts I used are all Sizzix.
The image is a Lindsay Mason stamp, coloured with cosmic shimmer paints.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look, I always appreciate your comments.

  20. Well I can testify that thisis a rather grogeous little project as I have it hanging in my craft room!! Just popped by to say a proper 'thank you' Yvonne for my quirky little card (could be me and my cat in the garden LOL) and my hanging - love the steampunky vibe going on!! And the sentiment really made me smile - sometimes I look at this room full of stamps and wonder ' how did this happen.....? Thank you again for making my day special, hugs Cindy xx
