Take a seat...oh, and a crown..

As promised a few days ago, here are some sneak peeks (no full shots permitted, sorry, magazine policy...booooo, what a rotten rule) of my part of Craft Stamper's Stamping Contrast contribution featured in this months magazine out today (November issue).

I was given Empty (the chair), Hole Punched (the film negative border)and Crown by Paperbag Studios and available from Wendy at The Stamp Attic here in the UK. The blue paper I used is just listed as 'Digi downloaded Splendour', but is infact Paperbag Studios Splendour which is Digi downloaded from the PBS site.

Here you can see how I used the crown by 'hanging' it onto the corner of the chair. This is a very large tag. The ribbon of this came out quite nicely too as I stamped the crown onto blue satin.





And here is a close up shot of the second piece which is a card.



As often happens, perhaps a stamp that you are not initially drawn to can so often turn into a favourite image with lots of milage (see previous post where I gave it a totally different look) and you find yourself using it all the time.

Thanks for stopping by- I hope you get an opportunity to get a look at the magazine too to see the three other artists work that took part in the challenge, Rachel Jackson, Sharon Neill and Sue Roddis, all of whose work I greatly admire.
The magazine is available online now from The Stamp Attic.

Brilliant work Jo, love what you did and love what the other ladies also did. I agree, stupid rule, showing the work can only be a good thing in my book, sharing is what we are all about I thought? oh and your colour choice is my favourite, thank you for taking part.
