Floral border with oxide inks.

Hi everyone, I was invited to be a guest designer for Craft Stamper Magazine after winning the January Challenge with my ATC. The theme is anything goes as long as you use stamping somewhere on your project.

Take It, Make It Challenge

I've been making distress oxide backgrounds, lots of fun and very therapeutic after a hectic day at work! I diecut one with this border die, glued it onto another white diecut for dimension, stamped and embossed a sentiment and it was finished.

I'm also linking up to the Spring or faith themed challenge at Stamplorations,

and to The Flower Challenge where it's anything goes,

The theme at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday is girl power.
Girls love flowers so I'm visiting there too!
