Challenge 5 - Use A Punch or Die Shapes

Hi All

Can you believe it - July already - and as it is the first of the month there is a new Challenge over at Lavinia Stamps.  There is a huge prize of £40 worth of Lavinia Stamps and this month's challenge is Use a Punch or Die Shapes so pop along and join in.  Here is my sample:


For this card I used Hop Skip & Jump Silhouette as the main image, such a lovely versatile stamp.  I stamped and embossed this and mounted on black card to give added definition.  I then used the stamp "vine" (one of my absolute favourites as you can use all or part of the stamp) using Black versafine again.  I mounted this on black again before mounting on my original white card.  For this card I have used both a die and a punch.  The flowers are from Woodware Multiflower Xmas punch and the leaves are a Crealies Die CLCSII.  I added stickles to the fairy wings and a small sentiment to complete.  I love black and white cards - don't you?

Remember to join in the Challenge and good luck! Kx
