SAM Challenge 4

The Stamp-a-Memory challenge this time around is to use black and white plus one other colour of your choice.

I chose Pink (Pink Pirouette to be precise). Once again I have used one of my sister-in-law Shelley Wendt's gorgeous photos, this time of my youngest niece Miss Briannah.

Here is my entry:

I stamped and heat embossed a corner detail using the Frames with a Flourish Stamp set.

I used 3 different sizes of circle punches to make my flowers. The punched circles were crumpled and sponged with Pink Pirouette ink before being adhered together with dimensionals. I used white half-pearls from the Pretties Kit for the centre of my flowers.

I made my black and white background paper using the Damask stamp from the Friends 24-7 stamp set. I used my trusty stamp-a-ma-jig so that I could stamp the images fairly evenly. Leaving the stamp-a-ma-jig in place also meant if my image didn't stamp clearly I could re-stamp before moving it (and yes that happened several times).

I had a lot of fun with this challenge and I adore this photo of Briannah - pretty and wild at the same time.
