Sunday challenge 26

It was Independance Day on the island of Grenada on the 7th of Feb so this weeks postcard should come from...
The Caribbean.
Happy stamping.

Sunday Challenge 25

Managed to find a couple of stamps I hadn't put away. I painted the background with mica powder ( which is why it's warped). Then I run it through my cuttlebug to emboss and added a cut out snowflake.

Challenge 24: postcard from Australia

I know that I'm late with this one, but I ordered the koala and kangaroo stamps specially and they didn't arrive in time to do this challenge (not from Tanda, I might add!). I used a rubbadubbadoo stamp that I got with a giraffe one to stamp the leaves randomly over and over again, placing the koala within them (sorry, not very clear on the scan). The kangaroo was coloured with copics and the G Day is PM alphabet stickers. The background paper is K & Co Brenda Walton mira pad.


Challenge 25: postcard from Iceland

Here is my effort - card is core'dinations, embossing is cuttelbug folders and stamping done with a PM stamp embossed with white detail. I did the swiss dots embossing first, so was unsure whether the stamping would 'take', but it did. The darker panels are a couple of twinchies I made that I thought went well on this.
