Stamping Chic Challenge #2

Well, tis almost the weekend again, hurrah! Feeling a bit pants this afternoon though as found out my boyfriend has to work nights tomorrow and Saturday which is no fun. Oh well, that means lots of time to sit and craft the those nights away so that's of some comfort.

I was very happy last night to read that Clare had left 2 lovely comments on my two stamping chic cards so felt inspired to sit and make another one last night using the this week's Friday Sketcher's Challenge layout.
I just love this stamp used on the card below. I tried something new with this one and am now hooked! what am I on about you may ask? Well, I bought new core' dinations card stock at the weekend. It's the 'Chocolate Box' collection which, if you dont already know, has a canvas texture and is chocolate coloured but hidden underneath the surface is another yummy colour which you can reveal by sanding (I used a nail file), tearing or antiquing or distressing the edges. I also love getting the colours of the background patterned papers onto the stamped image itself which I have been doing by stamping the image onto plain card and patterned paper, then cutting out the part of the image on the patterned paper eg.trousers or top and sticking onto the image on the plain card!

I used promarkers to colour in another piece of plain card then stamped a sentiment onto it and 3d mounted it onto the right hand side of the card.

Hope you like. Would welcome any comments or questions. Right, now I'm off to do some (yawn) ironing! Exciting Stuff hey!?
