Double Challenge Entry...

Goodness me - there I am sitting down for 5 minutes and thinking I have no pressure on me to do anything and... BOOM, I suddenly realise I have a double challenge entry to post and I have to get it done today!

Thank goodness I remembered as I am feeling a little smug!

I am combining the Dynamic Duo's challenge of combining Wisteria Wonder and Perfect Plum, with the Simply Less is More challenge to use string or twine. I had seen this technique somewhere out there on t'interweb and decided this was the perfect opportunity.


You wrap string round one of your blocks - press on to your ink pad and BOSH a unique and fun stamp... you can alter the distance between and angle of the strings to create different designs.


So the background String Stamping uses Perfect Plum and the flower from Flower Shop is in Wisteria Wonder. Punched out using the co-ordinating Pansy Punch.


What do you think? Please leave your comments I do love to read them and treasure each and every one!

  1. Hi Paula.

    What a great background. I have used this technique before, its amazing what effects you can achieve with different bits on your pad. Rubber bands is another good one.

    Love Sheila x
