My New Stamp

I have loved this Magenta stamp from the first time I saw it used on a card. Finally, I found it for sale and bought it. It's not a cheapie, but I think it's worth it.
I think that it will be quite versatile, as I have seen examples where different elements from the stamp have been used independently. However, for its first outing, it's here in its entirety.
The challenge this week from One Stop Crafts is Metallic (colours or materials) and for the first time in ages I did a little heat embossing.
The image is embossed in gold and coloured using Perfect Pearls in Copper and Heirloom Gold with Green Patina for the leaves.
The paper is from Indian summer by Basic Grey. A few gems and some gold organza ribbon completed the card.

  6. Another lovely card Chrissie. I've been looking for some new stamps recently but with a male theme in mind. I do find them very difficult as I want something other than sport or vintage images and so far I haven't had much luck. I've just noticed you have become a follower of mine, thank you very much. It's really lovely when peopole visit and encourage.
