Totally Gorjuss Traditional colours

WOW Don't flipping Blink it will be Christmas!
But we have some time left so I am here today with a challenge for you with Totally Gorjuss The theme this week is
Traditional christmas colours
and our fabulous sponsor is Crafters Companion

I have used a Penny Black slapstick stamp called Christmas Pride, I stamped it 3 times and coloured it with Distress inks, then have decoupaged it, the centre is several glass beads glued in with glossy accents, the panel behind is distressed and stamped with a Penny Black Text stamp, 

I have tried to keep it fairly simple as I think the flower is striking enough without over doing the rest, I think I am going to be using this stamp a lot! thehhehee

Challenges I am playing along with are:

Merry Monday - Sketch
Sparkles - Traditional
Crafts and Me - Anything Goes

Have a great day
and don't forget to come and join us at
