Stamp with Us

Good morning everyone.

This is my first time joining the challenge at Stamp with Us.

This week the challenge is a recipe:-


I wanted to add a sentiment but that would have made three stamps! I hope I'm within the rules with the ribbon as I started with two pieces and cut one in half to add the strip under the image.

Here's what I used to make this card:-

Stamps: "En Francais" and " Ageless Adornment"
Colouring Medium: Tim Holtz Distress inks (image); background stamping Chocolate Chip and distressing So Saffron
Ribbon: So Saffron and Pumpkin Pie
Other: Holographic embossing powder - this covers the whole of the image but unfortunately it doesn't show on this photo :-(

Thank you for visiting my blog today. Have a lovely day whatever you are doing.

Clare xx

This is really lovely Clare. I love that french stamp. What make is it? I think that handstamped backgrounds are often better than manufacturer's own. I think it's a bit like wallpaper, there are some fabulous ones and some are dire.
Doing it yourself you can get just hwat you want!
