Crafting from the Heart - Anything Goes/Favourite Colour

Good morning crafters and followers.  Monday has come around again, I know comes around every week I just wish the weekend would go as slow as the week. 

My post today is my DT sample for the super new challenge over at Crafting from the Heart which is now a weekly challenge - brilliant.  This week is 'Anything Goes/Favourite Colour'  Challenge 9 and the prizes are: -

Offering a Prize of 3 digi stamps

Angie's Digi Stamps

Sassy Studio

As you will see I chose a lovely digi stamp called 'Boom Box' from Sassy Studios.  She is so useful and would be brilliant for teenagers.

  1. die cut piece of grey card and orange card using 5x7 matting basics dies
  2. die cut shapes using labels 20 and faux cut two pieces of grey card too
  3. using a labels shape in white and my brick embossing folder I inked the actual folder, placed my white die onto the ink and ran it through my ebosser which was how I got the coloured brick effect
  4. die cut 2 grey flourishes and 2 white flourishes.  The white flourishes will act as a shadow effect.
  5. I finished off by adding a sentiment which was a stamp from my stash.
