Time for a challenge!

Hi there!  If you follow my blog you will know that I spend a lot of time with chipboard and I do love that but sometimes I just need to get back to my stamping roots :-D  Especially when I go to get a card out and there isn't one hahaha!!!!!  What better way to get my stamping mojo going than to do a challenge or two!!!!  This one is for a colour challenge over at *Chocolate Baroque*.  I have a fair few of their stamps, going way back to when they were Elusive Images.  For this challenge I chose to use a 'new' one: Punky Flowers, a sheet jam packed with steampunk flowers....


The colour combo:

The background has been dry brushed with acrylic and stamped and embossed with glittery black powder (such a shame that you can't see the sparkle)  I then coloured in the flowers with Copics and added some white dots here and there.

The stamps I used:

Thank you so much for popping by, I hope you are not disappointed by the lack of chipboard hahaha!  Hugs xxx
