Well this was certainly a challenge for me! Ready-Steady-STAMP is up to its 19th challenge, and for this one we had to use pink, green, purple and black, stamped flowers, gesso, the letter M and rubber! I had a long long search for my gesso, and having eventually found it I couldn't get the lid off! Not having a lot of strength in my hands due to arthritis and having nobody around to help, I chipped away at the underneath of the lid with my pokey tool and eventually prised it off!After a lie down!! - I spread the gesso over my fat book page with an old credit card and made an uneven textured surface which doesn't really show up on the photo unfortunately as it looks quite nice! When it was dry I inked it with Worn Lipstick and Bundled Sage DIs. The flower stamps are by Crafty Individuals and I watercoloured them in with DIs, and added Glossy Accents and Stickles afterwards. The black swirly stamps is also by CI and I stamped and embossed it in black. For the rubber bit of the challenge, I have to say I wasn't too keen on this bit - so I found a scrap bit off a pink rubber stamp and cut a small triangle to pop in the corner so it doesn't notice too much!! I edged my page with Dusty Concord DI which I also used to colour the flowers. Hope it is OK for the challenge!
I am married with 3 grown up children ,4 grandchildren and 2 dogs! I have always done crafting of some sort, originally knitting, cross stitching and tapestry, then I began paper crafting some years ago and haven't looked back!
I like to take photos of my garden for scrapbooking and the one on here is a sunflower that the birds kindly planted for me!
P.S. - Now I have gone back to doing a lot of knitting, crocheting and sewing too!
