Crafty Passions

Time for another Stampalot Challenge, and this month we want to know

What's Your Crafty Passion?

Are you mad about markers, desperate for Distress Inks, a sucker for stamping, or potty about punches? Do you have a favourite technique/colour combo/subject? Whatever you can't live without in your crafting, showcase it on your project, and tell us what it is.

My crafty passions (well, the ones I've managed to fit on my card at least!) are butterflies, Distress Inks, my Cuttlebug and resist techniques.

I stamped the butterfly (by Inkylicious, as is the sentiment) with Versamark ink to act as the resist, and then sponged over the background with the Spring limited edition Distress Inks (love those colours!) The diecut butterfly is made with two dies by Memory Box, and the border is from the Spellbinders Parisian Accents set.

The prize this month won't disappoint. An eclectic mix of gorgeous goodies with which to feed your crafty passions, generously donated as ever by Sir and Lady Stampalot who are definitely passionate about their craft.

Do pop over to the Challenge Blog and check out the DT's fab samples. We look forward to seeing yours!

Blue and green are such a perfect colour combo Lynn and the resist stamping make the prefect backdrop for the focal butterfly.

Have a lovely Sunday.

Stunning creation Lynne, the butterfly really does pop and the soft background you have created is amazing.

Wow, Lynne! Totally stunning! I knew your would have butterflies, and those colours are so perfect! Gorgeous!

I think we have very similar crafty passions, Lynne. I couldn't live without my DI's either and love to use them with either butterflies or flowers, best of all both.
I love that resist background you've created and in my favourite colours too. It's a gorgeous card.
Hope you are well.
Hugs Lisax
