Stampalot August Challenge

Another "anything goes" theme for Sir Stampalot Challenge this month with


I decided to use one of my favourite Penny Black stamps, the poppy, embossed on to an alcohol inked background and coloured with Promarkers. This was then attached over some Papermania background paper with some lace to trim the edges. The sentiment, by The Craft's Meow, was stamped on to a Nestie label.

The prize on offer for August is this fabulous selection of goodies!

So good luck everyone! I'm sorry this is such a short post, but I'm just about to head off up to Scotland to do some house hunting. Wish me luck!

This is stunning, Lynne. I love that alcohol ink background. It's so subtle. I struggle to get the inks soft enough, think I might need some new colours.
Your Poppy is beautiful too.
Hope you are enjoying the Summer break and not working too hard.
Hugs Lisax
