Alter it ~ Fashionable Stamping Challenges


A very happy and so far sunny Sunday to you all, it's time again for the latest FSC challenge which is Alter it, chosen by the lovely Joanna. It would be great if you could pop over to the FSC blog and see the gorgeous projects made by the other Stampettes.  Our generous sponsor is Leo from Flonzcraft and the winner of the random draw gets to spend $20 dollars in his stamping store. We had an overwhelming response to our last challenge, it will certainly be a challenge choosing our top three.


For my design project I chose to alter a little wooden box that has been in my stash for a while. It got the shabby french treatment, using the gorgeous stampendous stamp as the central image, and lots of distress inks and inktense pencils. Then a touch of diluted gesso to shabby it up a bit. I added a small brass draw pull to finish.

Hoping you all have a lovely Sunday & Happy Crafting xx
