Sunday Stampers Week 232 - FACES

Hello Everyone

This week our lovely hostess Hels Sheridan at http://pinkleart.blogspot.co.uk has chosen FACES as our theme for this week's challenge and here is my entry.



The lovely face stamp is by Inkylicious and I stamped this onto white card.  I matted it onto an ATC which I had overstamped with a Hero Arts Harlequin background stamp and coloured with Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Peacock Feathers and Festive Berries (the same colours were used on the main tag also).  Apologies for the glare on the left hand side, it was dark when I took the photo.

At the bottom of the tag I stamped with my latest Tim set of stamps Classic Favourites No. 3 (I love this set!).  The ribbon is vintage seam binding again coloured with Festive Berries DI, scrunched, dried and added with a double bow.  The lady's eye was coloured with Peacock Feathers DI and the lips with Festive Berries and then coated with Glossy Accents.

The words are TH chit chat and say 'embrace friendship'.  It is that time of year - Thanksgiving / Harvest Festival time and I want to give thanks, amongst other things,  for all the lovely blog friends I have made since I started blogging a few short months ago.  I am truly thankful for your friendship and hope it will continue for a long time to come.  So many of you are a true inspiration to me.

I hope that you will leave me a comment, I do love to read them all and I always try to return the compliment.  Crafty hugs to you all,  Anne xx

  4. As Butterfly said the colour combination is wonderful.I also enjoyed the diamonds - a bit of channelling going on there I think!

  5. Love the atc on top of the tag. The colour palette is so striking and vibrant. Colouring only the eye and lips makes that stamped image rivetting. The seam binding bow is the perfect topper.

  26. Stop making me buy stamps :D! Ha ha, well actually no don't because you make the most beautiful and gorgeous creations with them that I want to see. Your tag is superb Anne and as always when I come to your blog, I'm inspired by what you've made and want to go off and make something immediately!

    The colours are fantastic together, I've a couple more cabinet cards to finish and I might do this combo for one of them.

    The face stamp is gorgeous and is perfect in your wonderful design, love the harlequin stamp and your TH one too.

    Thanks for your beautiful comment earlier Anne, you are lovely.

    Big hugs,
    Chris xx

  28. Hey my talented British friend (shhhhh, I won't tell anyone if you won't - it will be our secret) Your tag once again is gorgeous - it seems like I tried to get this face stamp from someone but they were sold out. Her eye is gorgeous as are her lips. I really love the way you have designed this Anne - Fabulous!!!
