FSC – Circle The Globe Challenge

 Fashionable Stamping Challenges this fortnight have a fabulous theme of  “Circle The Globe” which was picked by … ta daaaa … me.

Bought this beautiful World Map from Stampin Up and so wanted to make something with it so I chose the theme above.  I also thought that maybe some of you didn’t have any map stamps so added that you just have to use a circle in your make.  Also wanted to use the Dina Wakley “All The Gals” stamps plus  a stamp from B Line Designs called Rebecca.

My Pro Markers finally made an appearance after being neglected for yonks and yonks.  Not sure why I don’t use them so much nowadays as colouring in is so therapeutic.  Time just floats away and you forget everything except what you are colouring.

Around The World

After making the background with Dylusions ink spray – Crushed Grape, Adirondack Colour Wash – Lettuce and various masks I added two stamped quotes just to tie everything together.

I would love it if you hopped on over to see all the DT’s work as they are simply stunning.  Also don’t forget that the winner of this challenge has $20 to choose anything they like from Flonz’s store.

    Oh, yes, I love that World Map – so glad you gave it an airing! And what a lovely colour combination, so subtle and pretty. Great thought too about those friends the other side of the globe still being present – modern technology does have a lot to be said for it!

    I love the gorgeous background you created Shirl and the colours are beautiful. The map is a great stamp, I am sure you will get lots of use from that. The Dina stamp is beautiful. Like you, I have not had my Promarkers out for ages, seeing this I may just do so now! Hugs, Anne x

    Your colour scheme is my absolute favourite and love those ‘gal’ stamps. A gorgeous card ! My pro-markers are festering in a box somewhere too, but as you say it’s very therapeutic, I love colouring in – think you may have inspired a pro-marker frenzie ! Thanks for a great theme….Esther xxx

    Such beautiful colours in the background Shirley! I love the grape colour. And a wonderful sentiment especially for blogland when we are all so connected through a love of stamping from all over the world.
