Addicted to Stamps & More Challenge #186





Hi there blog friends,
It's time for the next challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More, and our theme is 'Anything Goes'!

There's nothing like some new stamps and dies to spark your mojo, right?


I followed Laura Bassen's Emboss Resist Ink Blending Technique (in This You Tube video) for the flowers, and created an ombre effect with my ink on the die cut sentiment. I also used a stitched panel and a few clear sequins to keep the design CAS ~

We hope you'll have the time to stop by the ATSM Challenge Blog and play along with us! Our Sponsor is SLS LINES, and they are offering two digital stamps to the winner!


Thanks so much for stopping by ~ Have a great week,
