Going Fast


Greetings everyone!  I am a bit late with my post today.  My dear husband, as some of you know, has been battling a very severe health issue for over a decade, and these past few months have been particularly challenging.  That aside, I am happy to share with you my latest post for the newest challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge where the theme is "Anything Goes!"  It was a good excuse to pull out some new stamps from Paper Artsy and a new stencil from Tim Holtz!  I began by smooshing Distress Inks on my Craft Mat, spritzing with water and pulling by card front through the puddles of inkiness.  The images were stamped with Black StazOn Ink onto the inked card front.  The sentiments by Artistic Outpost were stamped onto scrap card stock, edged with a black pen and added to the card front.  Using one of Tim's newest stencils, I added a bit of Mowed Lawn Distress Paint to Embossing Paste and pushed it through the stencil.  Embellishments include Black Liquid Pearls, Chit Chat Stickers and Idea-ology Mini Gears.  I hope you will pop over to FSC to check out the rest of the Design Team's gorgeous inspiration pieces and then submit one of your own for a possible gift voucher for $20 from our generous sponsor, FlonzCraft.  Thank you for dropping by.  Hugs, Yvonne

You really have created the most wonderful background and I love the collage of stamping, it is very dramatic - and beautiful. You have clearly been through some very difficult times, I hope that all goes well for you both. Anne x
