I made the top 3, and a quick card

I am so chuffed, I have made TOP 3 at Fashionable Stamping Challenge, the theme wasw vintage and my entry can be found here my blog entry, I look forward to displaying my first winners badge on my blog.
I also visited my local craft shop owned by the lovely Sue "Stampers Gallery" if you live in the Preston or Southport area call in to this friendly shop, it's packed to the rafters with great crafty goodies and I haven't been yet and not bought something.
Sue has asked me to hold a demo so I look forward to getting that organised and getting down and crafty........... with like minded folk.

Anyway onto a quick card, I was asked to make a thankyou card for a man so I went with a steampunk theme as it was the first male thing I could come up with and only had a couple of hours notice before I had to deliver it as job done!

Indigoblu rubber stamps
background is orange coordinations card and Tim Holtz embossing folder and I have put versamark on the embossing folder prior to running it through my grand caliber, and then embossed with cosmic shimmer silver shine metallic embossing powder, the sanded and inked with black and vintage photo distress ink.
Other paper is from kanban industrial, as is "thanks" which I have punched from one of the papers.
Some Tim Holtz ideaology and a spash of ribbon and my beloved watch parts finish it off.

Anyway I have a victory to celebrate...... with a cup of tea lol
see you soon
