Fashionable Stamping Challenges - Traveling Around the World



There's a new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge! For the next two weeks, we will be focused on the the theme "Traveling Around the World!" The skies the limit on this one. Will you choose a plane, a boat, or some other image to convey travel? For my own card, I decided to work with a brand new plate of stamps called French Flight by Artistic Outpost. A big thank you to AO who gifted me with the plate of stamps as a thank you for being published in the latest Take Ten Magazine with cards featuring AO stamps. I began with a white card stock panel and distressed it with Antique Linen, Vintage Photo and Faded Jeans Distress Inks. I stamped the script in Iced Spruce Distress Ink over the distressed panel. The various images were also stamped with Distress Ins and mounted either directly or with foam dots for dimension. I added several words in Festive Berry Distress Ink for contrast. Bits of red, white and blue twine and ribbon, some silver Liquid Pearls, and some very vintage buttons complete my card. You will be delighted with the variety of samples on display at FSC by the other Design Team Members. As always, there is a wonderful prize at stake and please make sure to read the few rules associated with this challenge. Thanks for dropping by and I look forward to seeing what each of you dream up! Best, Yvonne
