World Stamping Week - my first Challenge attempt

I heard about this even from Jan (Far North), it's organised by Two Peas in a Bucket and sounded like a lot of fun so I went to take a look. WOW!! Loads of fun challenges to attempt this week. This is my first - the challenge was "Naked Stamping" - use only ink and stamps to create your project - no printed papers, diecuts etc.

For this card I created a background using a brayer and Kaleidacolor ink pad (Cappuccino Delight) and edged round it with Brilliance Galaxy Gold. The flowers were stamped using stamps from the Elusive Images "Big Flowers" themplate with Archival Black ink and coloured by sponging on colour from a Kaleidacolor pad (Desert Heat) and also some Distress Ink (Mustard Seed). The flowers were cut out and mounted on foam pads - the edges of the flowers have been cuved over the back of mu scissors to give a little more dimension and to help conceal the foam pads underneath.

I had fun making this and hope I can find time to fit in a few more of the World Stamping Week Challenges. Take a look at the Two Peas site, there is lots going on - just visit the message board and choose General Stamping - posts relating to the challenge all start with WSW in the thread title - you need to look for the WSW Master Thread to get all the information about taking part.
