The Stamp Man Challenge # 19 - Recipe

Hi Everyone - it's Friday, and time for the next Stamp Man challenge. This week Lisa S has a recipe for us to follow, but it's in the form of a bingo card and you can choose which line you would like to use.

I have included all the things on the bottom left to top right diagonal line and so I have a die-cut, ribbon and stitching. I drew additional inspiration from the Simon Says Stamp challenge of sparkle and shine, The Shabby Tea Room with monochromatic and Sketch Saturday.

This card is for my good friend Sue who has a mile-stone birthday next week and we are joining her tomorrow for her celebrations.
The stamped image is one of Jill's Framies which she has designed and sells exclusively at the Stamp Man shop. This one fits perfectly with the Nestabilities Labels 4 set.
I stamped the image twice then diecut the image with a slightly smaller die than the background one so it provided a different colour mount but with the stamped edging. I also used the faux nestie technique by drawing round the largest one and cutting it out to give me a further mount.

You can just see some butterflies along the bottom of the TH backing paper which were embossed with a glittery embossing powder.

I also used a glaze pen on the 50 embellishment to give it some shine.

My butterflies are made using 2 different sized MS punches and then I added distress stains and DI before covering them with distress stickles. Some pink hessian, ribbon, pearls and tiny tag handwritten with happy Birthday add the finishing touches.
Supplies -
TH paper stash - vintage shabby
Stamps - The Stamp Man Framies, TH Papillon and City Central
Distress stickles - rock candy
DIs - aged mahogany, victorian velvet, vintage photo, pumice stone
Nestabilities - labels 4
Sakura glaze pen - clear

Do go take a look at the fabulous designs made by the DT, you will see how this great challenge can be interpreted in so many ways and is completely versatile for anyone to enter.
