Clean Collage and Recent Wins

I love looking through blogs for inspiration and recently I had popped over to see Juls at The Glitter Chick and was totally inspired to have a go at clean collage, which is also in last months Craft Stamper mag.

This is my version and gives me more cards for my pressie tins. A completely different style for me again - but you know I just love to experiment with nearly anything. I don't think I have ever glued straight onto the card, but it is quite a nice effect. Do you think I will ever settle at one particular style? No, I don't.

The stamp is Elusive Images, papers and embellishments from my boxes of bits.

I hope you don't mind I just had to post my recent wins and top spots as well.

Stampotique New Year card won Pile It On #1 - a Fancy Folds CD and a 1 year subscription to the Technique Junkie Newsletter
Stampotique Again was a Top 3 at Stampin for the weekend
Misting Mask - was a winner at Shelly's Images with a digi image to add to my collection and I was also awarded a Ginger Gem at Gingersnaps Creations for my coffee filter flower. Woo hoo, a Ginger gem, I can't believe it.
Shabby Birthday was a Top 3 at Paperplay
Childhood Memories was also a Shining Star (Top 3) at Stampin Sisters in Christ

Hope you have a good crafty day.

luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox

And I'm liking this new twist to your creativity. As you know I've recently become addicted to CAS myself (it's my new fave) but, like you, will undoubtedly be on to the next new fave sometime soon!

Have a great day, B
