Time for a new Lets Ink It Up Challenge

It always surprises me how quickly a month goes by....I cannot believe its time for the next DT challenge for Team B at Lets Ink It Up.  Its a great challenge - use a sentiment and create a 3D flower - no other focal image to be used - and remember no digis are allowed! 

Kreativ Hobby is the sponsor for this challenge with a terrific prize up for grabs!!!!  Who are a Norwegian rubberstamp producer – with more than 1000 different designs.  The winner of the challenge gets to pick 4 stamps.

I used an old tatty photo frame which I picked up from a local charity shop, which I sanded down and then painted, stencilled and stamped.  I used acrylic dabbers; gold and stream with a french text stamp and the swirl from the Paperartsy plate.

For the background I used old music sheet (which I picked up from a secondhand shop in Llangollen).  This was stamped using the gold acrylic to give it a little more texture.  The sentiment was also stamped using the acrylic paint.
My flower stamp is from an Elsuive Images which I have stamped onto grungepaper (coloured again witht he Stream and Gold dabbers) three times. This was then embossed with UTEE.

Pop along to the Let's Ink It Up blog to see what my fellow teamies have been up to.

I am also entering my frame into the following challenges:- 

Sentimental Sundays - Anything Goes with a Sentiment
Oldie but a Goodie - "Say it with Flowers"
