Stampsmith Challenge

I've  always admired Stampsmith stamps but as yet have not got any! I cannot decide because the choice is too great! Anyway I thought I'd have a go at the new challenge and maybe be lucky enough to win one and that will start me off :) the only suitable images I have are of stamps by La Blanche and I particularly like this one. I stamped with black Brilliance and used watercolour pencils to give a slight hint of colour. I distressed the edges with Tattered Rose and matted onto some Anna Griffin floral paper and layered onto script vellum. I cut out some of the hydrangeas from the floral paper and made a flower, decoupaged some leaves and used gems and silver embellishments to finish. Hope this covers the brief.

A beautiful stamp, one I own and unfortunately don't use often enough. Thank you for joining TSSC#5 and Good Luck with the prize draw. Lynne M . (a good start to stamp with is Serena if you want to buy a single um - a stamp I use time and time again and never get tired of using )
