Dazzling Diva Challenge #58 & Winnie & Walter Challenges

dazzlingdiva58This time the Dazzling Diva challenge is a colour based challenge. I didn’t go with the winter theme for inspiration- just the colours..congrats1
The 3 metal colours I’ve used are Scarlet Red, Wondrous White & Perfect Peacock

I’ve used an Xcut die of different paperclips and some Winnie & Walter stamps with matching distress inks.

We all know that distress inks can often pool on detailed photopolymer stamps (but they have a myriad of uses and that’s why we all really love them!!) but if you use a little trick, the stamping is much clearer.

Just stamp the image first with Versamark ink and then ink it with Distress ink.


The metal makes for fun embellishments- and of course, the paperclips will clip on too- if you wanted.

challengepicDo join in with the challenge here. Don’t forget- there’s a $15 voucher to be won & then you can get your hands on some lovely metal too! Link up your projects to the linky at the bottom of the post and join in!!

I’ve created this project for the Winnie & Walter Birthday challenge too!

This project ties in with the ‘Distress Inks and Patterns’ challenge

There’s a ton of challenges to join in with too!

Hope you’ve enjoyed this,

will be back soon with some more challenges!

    May I borrow your brain for just a little while. It seems you just have the best ideas. Brilliant.
