City Crafter 360

Good morning!

It's Tuesday and that means a new challenge over at 


Where the lovely Stella is hosting for us and her challenge to us is 

You Can Do It

Stella is asking that we make our own background...


...Using your inks, paints, markers etc., in your favourite colours and techniques

Well, you know I love to stencil but I chose to stamp for this challenge but I did use my favourite colours - blues and greens


And I had a little fun adding the word "enjoy" to a piece of acetate so it kind of sways


I used a new set of stamps (unknown make) given to me by a friend, and various inks. I've always wanted to try stamping a background but I never seem to get the proportions right but I'm pretty pleased with how this turned out.


The only down side is that I didn't used my Misti so the stamping is not as precise as it should be...

We'd love you take a minute to go see what the rest of the team have created up on the City Crafter Blog and hopefully play along with us this week.

Tomorrow I'll be on a plane heading off for  a week in the sunshine so I'll catch up with you all soon

Have a wonderful week...

Fantastic stamped background in the gorgeous blue and green! Very vivid and fresh and exciting. Love that swaying word. What a neat idea! Wishing you a wonderfully relaxing vacation in the sunshine!

Very lovely card with the blue/green leaves, Ros! Love the "enjoy" sentiment on acetate! Wonderful frame for the "life" sentiment, too! Take care and have a great vacation!!

Have a wonderful, relaxing time--will enjoy pictures when you get home! I love stamping a background, but usually end up with not enough room for at least one of the images. Yours looks great & how creative to use the acetate that way! Love this, Ros!

Love, love your pretty background (something I never think to do is stamp a background)...a lovely design!

I totally love this card - it's stunning! The intensity of the colors and the pattern you created remind me a bit of the clothing of Gudrun Sjöden, if that means anything to you.

Awesome stamping job. I know what you mean about the proportions but you've balanced it beautifully.
