I've been bursting to tell you!

and now I can, I am thrilled to tell you  that I am now part of the Fashionable Stamping Challenge DT Team. I was contacted before christmas by Shirley who runs the challenge to ask if I would like to join her team as part of the DT, well a "no brainer" for me so I jumped at the chance, who wouldn't want to join such a fabulous challenge blog along side so much amazing  DT talent?
I've joined in with their fortnightly stamping challenges many times and when I first started entering my work into challenges I gained my first ever top 3 from them. 

My introduction to the team with my first DT piece can be found HERE .

 If you would like to join in with the current challenge "Hearts and flowers" details for that can be found HERE
and also see the great inspiration from the team.

This is my interpretation of that challenge, plenty of stamping on this one, as I am sure  many of you already know, this is a rubber stamping challenge blog so your project has to include rubber stamping as a main feature.

I have used Paperartsy hearts and flowers stamps for the background masking off and stamping to create it, all over the top of a background that I made using Dylusion sprays with the shaving foam technique. The images were then coloured using more Dylusion sprays. The image of the happy couple is from Stampotique and sentiment is from Kaisercraft, used again to create the backing card.
As always, thanks for stopping by, and hopefully catch you over at
