* Artsystamper: Congratulations


Happy Monday!

Today sees the start of a new challenge at the Artsystamper Challenge Blog
Each challenge runs for two weeks and starts on the first and third Monday of the month. 
The theme for this challenge is Sentiment-al.
I hope that you can find time to join in the fun!

The winner will receive the stamp set of their choice from TheArtsystamperShop. The Winner and Top 3 will receive a badge for their blog.

Beverly Cole’s selections offer stamps and sentiments in each set as well as pre-coloured images for easy, last minute cards. Why not take a moment and check out what she has in store!

Here is my card:

I used the beautiful vase of roses digi stamp from Vintage Roses and Birds. I coloured the image with Copic markers and die cut it into a rectangle. Leaving the die in place, I inked the background of the image with Antique Linen Distress Oxide. I made the background by brayering PaperArtsy Fresco paints in Sage, Khaki and Haystack onto card. I chose black polka dot paper for my mats - a true test of how straight you cut! I die cut a set of hearts from some spare painted background and lightly inked the edge in black. The sentiment is from Beverly's new Artsy Sentiment Set.

That's all for today! 
I hope you will hop on over to Artsystamper Digitals Challenge Blog and enter our challenge! You will also see more inspiring designs from the Artsystamper Addicts Design Team ... so much fun.

I'll be back with another Artsystamper project in two weeks time.
