Child's Play

Greetings!  Thank you to my faithful followers and friends for continuing to visit my blog and encourage me in my artful journey! Already, two weeks have gone by and it is time for another challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge.  Our challenge this time is around the theme of "Child's Play!"  

For my creation, I immediately knew I wanted to work with some images I picked up last year from Lost Coast Designs.  They were all stamped with Black Archival Ink onto scrap card, trimmed, lightly tinted with Distress Inks and mounted to my card front, which was first stenciled with Pumice Stone and Spun Sugar Distress Inks using stencils by The Crafters Workshop. The sentiments and "Jacks" are by Artistic Outpost.  A repurposed scrap of sheer ribbon was fashioned into a bow and added as the sole embellishment.  You will certainly want to view the other inspiration pieces of the rest of the Design Team over at FSC and we do hope you will share a creation of your own with us for a chance to win a $20 gift voucher from our gracious sponsor, FlonzCraft.  

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Best, Yvonne

I love how you choose the different elements for a theme and bring them together in a fabulous card. When I look closely , I can see there is a lot of work gone into the background that gives it that 'rounded' look - so skilled and really beautiful.

This is really sweet and delicate, Yvonne! Love how you combined images and that background with hearts is beautifully made.
