Sunday Stampers Week 294 -Diamonds

Hello again Friends..goodness twice in a day!

As promised I'm back with this week's Sunday Stampers challenge project. Sunday Stampers is a weekly challenge set by wonderfully inspirational crafter Hels Sheridan - to check out all the deets click here

This week Hels set the theme of Diamonds, so I as I'm not a particularly 'blingy' crafter, I immediately turned to my Harlequin stamp by Indigo Blu, but what to do? I decided to make a wall hanging and  return to the chalkboard technique I used on my 'Tom's Tag' this month.

I actually used the same stamp, again by Indigo Blu...

To begin with I painted the wooden plaque black, then I stamped the diamond pattern around the edges using Versamark ink, coated it with white embossing powder and heat embossed. I then stamped and embossed the main image in the same way. Once I'd finished stamping and embossing, I chalked all over the plaque and wiped off with the palm of my hand, leaving a chalkboard 'dusty' effect.

To finish I die cut flowers from Spellbinders various elements from Carnation Creations and Die-Lights Blooms Four

That's all for today friends, but later today I will be doing the draw for my 70 follower candy winner, so do drop by could be you (anywhere in the world!)

Love and Hugs,
Carole  X
