June Challenge over at The Artistic Stamper

 Hi everyone its time to play over at The Artistic Stamper 
This months challenge is Summer is coming.

I have used Neil Walkers Fantasy background and border stamp,
The new dragonfly stamp & the new petal masks. 

I used Fresco finish paint in Beach Hut, Pea Coat, Inky Pool,
Limelight & snowflake for the base. I had stamped 
The fantasy plate onto distress mop up card 
with chipped sapphire DI.

I tore strips of the mop up card then stuck to the base and then
Grunge paste was put through the petal mask and
crackle paste was put round the edges &
painted when dry with fresco paint.

The fantasy border stamp was stamped onto the base board in chipped
Sapphire DI and gold embossed. 

gold gilding wax was used to highlight the petals and
crackle paste.

The dragonfly was stamped in Bora Bora & Limelight fresco paint
and clear embossed while still wet.
This then got a coat of Smoked Paprika and London Bus.
cog die cut's and sequins completed the look.

I layered it all onto blue then black embossed card that was highlighted
with gold gilding wax.
I hope you all enjoyed my post be sure to join in with us over at the Artistic Stamper 
where you have a brilliant chance to win Artistic Stamper stamps.
Let me know what you think.
Cheers Dee x
