Travelling Around The World

Well its that time again for another Fashionable Stamping Challenge and what a welcome relief not a Santa or reindeer insight, well just a touch of ivy LOL. So do please head over and feast your eyes on the gorgeous creations of the Fashionettes for some truly stunning inspiration. This challenge is all about Travel, it could be a card, ATC, canvas, box you name it as long as it features some stamping, the world is your oyster.
So to be in for a chance to win this gorgeous set of stamps from the lovely Marina from Cottage Crafts all you have to is blog your entry here.

I decided on a canvas of famous cities around the world, which I gessoed then went a little mad stamping on and used inktense pencils to add some colour. I have a penchant for travel themed stamps, so I had plenty to choose from. I used Crafty Individuals CI- 228 to stamp on eco board which I then tinted with water colour and triple embossed with UTEE.

Other stamps used
 Curious by design - Paris Voyage
Stampersanonymous - Urban chic
Stampendous cling - Carte Postale

Blog Candy has now finished and it will be drawn tomorrow, winners notified and hopefully I will get to the post office before christmas.

Apologises that I haven't managed to visit all your lovely blogs, but I'm even more unorganised than normal and late doing everything. My new years resolution is definitely to organise my time and workspace better wishful thinking perhaps!!

Have a great Sunday and Happy Crafting XX

Incredible stamping to achieve depth on your canvas.
I am also apologising for being unable to visit blogs, between elderly relatives, boiler breaking down, new boiler and radiators plus Christmas - I am booking myself on that Around the World trip this instant ROFL.
