Make Us Laugh at FSC

Today starts a new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and I, for this fortnight, got the chance to pick our theme' I have chosen
"Make us Laugh"
So we are looking for you to create a project that will bring a smile to our face or a good old belly laugh.
I have started by making a mixed media background which I started by glueing £20 notes to mixed media card, they weren't real ones I got some napkins with £20 notes printed on them as part of a secret santa presant last christmas. On top of them I then applied acrylic paint through sequin waste, some paint lines using a credit card, gold mesh and gold sequins.
This closeup shows the money which looks quite real, don't think I'll try a spending spree with it though.
My main image is "Smooch" by Mo Manning and I think we all know someone like her. I have stamped her with black archival ink and coloured her with spectrum noir pencils.
The Sentiment, stamped with deep purple archival ink, is one of my favourites and is from the "Brideshead" set by Indigblu.
Hopefully it makes you smile!!
So we'd love it if you popped over HERE and joined in the laughs.
Just a little reminder that you can enter any sort of project but as we are a rubber stamping challenge  rubber stamping must be the main feature of your project.
We are lucky to be sponsored by Flonzcraft and one randomly chosen winner will win a $20 voucher to spend in their store.
Thanks for visiting
see you soon
