Dream Valley 8 Stamp Something

Over at Dream Valley our challenge this time is to ‘stamp something’. 

That's it! No digital images allowed and anything you make must have some sort of hand stamping on it! As usual you can make enter anything into our challenges from cards to ATC's, Scrap page layouts to altered items! As long as your item has stamp and ink!

We have 2 sponsors this time for you all!!

Firstly with a £10 voucher

and secondly with a choice of a stamp


This challenge was perfect timing for me because I had just received the gorgeous Art Deco Bride/Flapper stamp from Crafts and Me after keep missing it every time it was in stock, so I was eager to stamp her up.

DV #08 Stamp Something WM

I was originally going to colour her in with promarkers, but fancied a softer approach so got my prismas out. Her hat feather’s were made by feathering small strokes of a turquoise shade with whispers pens as they come with a fabulously fine point nib as well as a brush tip. I have added glamour dust to the front part of her hat, and the roses on it, and also to her dress and arm decoration, and finally the rim of the mat, which I first edged with DI.

The BPs are from various Bearly Mine sets and I tried to match the colours of the rose paper in her dress. The ribbon was white ribbon which I dragged the DI ink over, feathers were from my stash, as were the roses and the diecuts are Marianne dies. The peel offs were chosen to match the pink areas.
