My Favourite Things

For our first challenge of 2018 on Try It On Tuesday the theme is My favourite things, could be stamping or a favourite technique etc. Well for me it has to be stamping every time, I rarely make anything that doesn't involve stamping some where. My second favourite is making my own backgrounds be it with inks,paints, pan pastels or in this case Brushos, also at the moment I'm really into white embossing, there is a little on this card but it doesn't show up too well. All the stamps I've used are Lavinia or Inkylicious. (I really NEED more Lavinia stamps ! )

For my second card I've used Brusho again, white embossed the Hero Arts stamp , the wording is an Inkylicious stamp.  Hope to see your entries on our challenge.
