Resisting!

This is the third time I've tried to do this post, hopefully will work this time !  Fashionable Stamping challenge this time is for resist techniques which is something I do use a lot, I've used two different types on this card, the two backgrounds pieces are stamped with versamark and coloured with pan pastels, one of my favourite ways of doing backgrounds as its so quick and easy, the centre panel is also stamped with versamark and embossed in white, then coloured with distress inks. Also entering the card on Try It On Tuesday which is make your own flowers, I'm not a big fan of very dimensional flowers although they look lovely it usually means having to make a box for the card with the added expense of the extra postage (well I am Yorkshire born and bred !) These are just stamped and die cut with the button centres added. Also entering it int0 Vintage Stamping challenge which is anything from your garden -flowers and seed packet and Creative Inspirations - anything goes, I have used their sketch.

  10. I think Blogger has a lot to answer for this week Joan, I too am having issues with peoples new posts not appearing on my dashboard - this one is a typical example as I only found it through the challenge.

    Love the pretty lilacs, the flowers and of course super resist stamping.

    Thanks so much for sharing your creativity with us at FlonzCraft Vintage Stamping Challenges.

  12. Lovely card, Joan - and those flowers are really wonderful. Sorry it's taken three goes to post... are you having trouble with Blogger too? I'm having nightmares with it - it seems to behave for the morning, but late afternoon and evening, I can't make my own posts behave, nor visit any other blogger blogs properly. It's driving me nuts!
