Alpha Challenge 'E'

The Craft Barn are running a two weekly Alpha Challenge. The current letter is 'E' and here is my page.



All the stamps are from Crafty Individuals set CI-351.  The background is made by first applying various Distress Inks, spritzing with water then adding various colours of Cosmic Shimmer paints.  The main image and some of the background images are stamped and embossed with clear powder.  The smaller images are just stamped but not embossed for a contrast.  The quote is written on a background coloured in the same way and the letters are cut from Cuttlebug dies.  The background is incredibly shimmery and vibrant but it doesn't show up too well in the photograph.  I may have got a little carried away with the stamping but I just love these stamps and couldn't stop!  Please pop over to the Craft Barn and see the brilliant pages from the Design Team and the other cool entries.  Have a brilliant weekend.  Take care.  Christine xx

Hi Chris, what a super page - the colours of the background work well together and stamping the tiny stamps on top is very effective. I like the title letter font too. Elizabeth xx

I love elephants and I love pink ones even more! Your page is wonderful, Chris. I really like your background and the embossing brings it to life with the added shine, and that elephant stamp is just lovely. Bravo!
