Good morning everyone & happy Saint Brigid's day to you all :) I'm sure all my Irish friends will remember making the crosses in school lol. Anyway, enough of my rambling, it's time for the start of another monthly challenge from
This month we are sponsored by
& our theme is
I had such a hard time deciding what direction to go with my project.
I knew I wanted to create my own backgrounds & as I had been shopping at my fav craft shop I had just the stamps I wanted to use. I started off with a black card base, I stamped the edges with my stamp & versamark & dusted mica powder over it. For my red panel, I used fired brick distress ink & flicked some water droplets onto it before soaking it up with some kitchen paper, I love the effect this gives (even if I did end up covering most of it with my image)
I used the same stamp that I used on the base & this time stamped it in memento black ink. I used templates to cut out my ticket shapes & again inked them with distress inks. I then over stamped them with some more of my new stamps :)
My image was coloured with my promarkers (oooohhhhh & today I finally completed the collection, so now it's onto Flex markers, no wonder I never have any money lol) & I cut it into an oval & matted it onto more black. She's a retired image from Sassy Studio Designs but do stop by as there are so many fab images there.
I die cut & rolled my roses, dipped them in glue & then red or silver fine glitter. I cut some leaves out too & then assembled my card. I finished off with a flat back black pearl from my stash.
I'll add the stamps I used & where I got them below, as I know some of you will love them as much as me :)
