Hi there, time for  STAMPlorations Sketch#22
 I used Bloom Sketches: Daisy 1
I did a little water colouring on the image using Distress Inks- Black Soot, Spiced Marmalade, Aged Mahogany and Scattered Straw.
I then added some Wink of Stella Clear Pen over the top to give a little shimmer.
The background stamp is from Stampin Up - Grid Stamp. I embossed with white and then coloured in the squares using the same Distress Inks,added a leaf die, washi tape and some embroidery cotton.
Our Guest designer for this challenge is.... Leslie from The Crooked Stamper!

STAMPlorations- Sketch #21

Hi there.... time for another fabulous sketch at STAMPlorations Challenge Blog...
(ends October 17; winner announced October 19)
I used the.... Holiday Sketches: Christmas Flower, such a great stamp..
I stamped the image in Archival Ink- Red Geranium and then used Distress Inks to colour the images in. I forgot to write down the colours so I'm sort of guessing... Barn Door, Aged Mahogany, Peeled Paint, Old Paper and Black Soot. I also used a Gold Brilliance Ink Pad  on the background as a wash effect and then stamped a music stamp with the same ink.
A few scattered ink spots and a few sequins completed the card.
Playing along with us is the wonderful  Elaine from Craft-E-Place.
