Ready-Steady-STAMP!



The current challenge on Ready-Steady-STAMP is to use the list of ingredients - use wax paper with a Cuttlebug embossing folder, use some cork, use metal embellishment, use blue, and use a monument image. We also have to stamp. I bought some wax paper having not used it before and put it through my Big Shot with a Cuttlebug embossing folder, ironed it between 2 sheets of white card and then inked over the card with Distress Inks. I love this and will do it again! I had a small scrap of cork from an old QVC TSV - just enough to cut a couple of corners with a Cuttlebug die. The metal embellishments are the Paris and Eiffel Tower, and I stamped the words and a couple of swirls. Hope it is all ok!!
