Travelling Around the World at FSC

Here we are again another Sunday with a new challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges. I can imagine that some of you have packed away all the Christmas craft stuff and are looking for fresh challenges to get your teeth into - well how about this one then? So long as you show us your stamping (not digis please) then come join the party as we travel around the world.

I have made a mini book and this is the cover. On it you can see the ticket to travel with. (I wish it really was that easy!!!)

A real key, TH token, frame covered with foil and coloured with alcohol inks, glass fragment and spinner, and TH tickets.

You can see the alcohol inks blended into the foil here.


Every page was inked and stamped in the same colours and the cover has the embellishing. I know just the person who might like this next year.

The lovely Stampettes at FSC have some amazing pieces as inspiration for this challenge and of course there will be a prize provided by Marina at Cottage Crafts. We would love to see what you create.

How are you doing with all your Christmas preparations? I need to finish a few more cards, buy a few more pressies and then get everything wrapped. So I guess I am getting there.  Off to see my sis tomorrow and take her bits and pieces up to her.

Have a wonderful week and see you soon.
