Time To Fly

Hello everyone, hoping that you're all having a good weekend so far. Also welcome on board to a few new followers, lovely to see you all and will try and pop over very soon to say hello.
This is a very quick post as we had unexpected visitors this afternoon and my crafting time was cut short as a result.
I have a card to show you that is for my return to creating for the Sunday Stamper challenge which is celebrating its 4th birthday this week. Many congratulations to Hels and a big thanks for her continued inspiration. This week's theme is Eyes and I guess my entry just about qualifies - I did try and do something else but couldn't make the image stamp properly (I'm suffering from a night out last night lol) so I hope this is OK.


The background paper here was made using Vaseline resist technique with a Tim Holtz flourish stamp and Distress inks in Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Fired Brick.
The image is by Lost Coast Designs and I stamped the panel on Judikins Krome Coat card. I decided not to add colour as I wanted impact.
I finished off with a flower coloured with Promarkers and added a brass stamping flower in the centre.

Hels has generously offered candy for her followers and challenge entrants so if you'd like the details hop on over. There's also a pic on my side bar if you scroll down a little.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Hugs, Fliss xx

Thanks for your comment Fliss. I love the background you've created here, I didn't know you could use Vasso for a resist technique. I've got an eye stamp so I might have a bash at this one later.

Stunning!!!
The stamp is amazing but it is the colour you backed her onto and the design at the side.
WOW.
Wishes
Lynne
