Inkurable Stampers November Challenge and a 2nd giveaway!

I'm back today with a sample for the challenge over at Inkurable Stampers blog - this month's theme is shabby chic Christmas.



I have painted a mid size matchbox with acrylic paint, and covered with MME Bella Bella paper, and added some walnut stain DI to age it a little. The stamps I have used are from the 'Seasons's Greetings' set by Stamp-It (the border stamp, joy, and background stamping on the mini tag). All stamping and inking were done with walnut stain DI. I have added some buttons, crochet flower, charms, lace, and a stick pin. The base of the flower is a Tim Holtz tattered floral die on brown scrap paper.



You can win this little beauty choc full of shabby chic items in celebration of me reaching 100 blog posts. This is my second giveaway - you can find details and enter the first giveaway by clicking here. All you need to do is leave me a comment on this post saying you want to win and you will be in the draw! The draw will remain open until 10pm Sydney Australia Daylight Savings Time on Sunday 21st November, 2010. I will announce the winner on Monday 22nd November. I am willing to post world wide.

This giveaway is now CLOSED :) Thank you for entering!

This is stunning Fiona. The colour palette and the shabby little details are too much eye candy to see all at once. Every time I look I see something else. I would love to win this.

I love all the textures in this tiny piece - so much to look at and appreciate, yet it all works together so cohesively. Beautiful job!
