Fly with me for FSC.

Time to tell you all about our new challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges. This time we were asked to, 'Build it Up', and use at least three stamps.
Please pop over for all the details and see what my design team sisters have been making.
I started off with a shaped card, adding a base layer of  G45 paper 
Next came some fancy edges, using die cuts.
This brings me to the main piece.
The main focal image is by Red Lead Paperworks, I have had this ages. She was stamped on to a piece of scrap paper, fussy cut so I could use this to mask the stamped area on the card base, before adding the background.
The favorite old french script, bullrushes from Stampers Anonymous and along the bottom a Hobbycraft stamp with some grasses. The colours used were Distress inks, Peeled paint, Antique linen and  Vintage photo.  The main image was water coloured.

Thank you for taking time to stop by, I realy appreciate the comments you leave
