A journey and the 2nd Anniversary Stamp Giveaway by Emma

Hello everyone! As you all know by now, here at The Artistic Stamper, during the month of August we're in party mood and celebrating the 2nd Anniversary of the Creative Team blog and because we want you to join us in our celebration we have decided to mark the occasion with some stamp giveaways.

Each team member has chosen stamps to giveaway on their post, and these are the stamps that I have chosen to use.
All you have to do to be in with the chance of winning these fab sets, is leave a comment either on this post, or HERE on my own blog!

And here is what I've made using the stamps, I hope you like it!!
To begin with, I stamped the smallest flower onto Grungepaper, to give me enough petals to make two dimensional blooms. I blended Picked Raspberry DI over the them and then created the flowers. I stamped two of the Tick Tock Butterflies onto a further piece of Grungepaper and blended these with Salty Ocean DI before placing the dimensional blooms into the centre of each butterfly.

I covered some chipboard in the Sticky Back Aluminum and then die cut some cogs using the Tim Holtz Alterations die, from my own stash. I then covered the die cuts with Hazelnut and Sunshine Yellow Alcohol Inks.
To make the background, I sprayed some white card with Fresh Lime and Vibrant Turquoise Dylusions Ink Sprays and blended the edges with Walnut Stain DI. I then used some more DI and the Raspberry Adirondack paint dabber and added some colour through the Mini Circle Explosion Crafter's Workshop Template. Next, I inked up the Random Dots stamp with black Archival Ink and stamped around the edge before finally, applying the Snow Cap Paint Dabber to the same stamp and again, stamping random areas around the edge and attached the inky background to my card blank.
I then took a piece of gold mirror card from my stash, embossed it with a Texture Fade and applied Sunshine Yellow and Citrus Alcohol Ink to the card. I adhered my backgrounds to a card blank and then added my grungepaper butterflies, blooms and cogs to it.
Finally, I stamped the Journey word onto a piece of white card, blended with Antique Linen DI and cut the card into a banner shape, before adding it to complete my artwork.
ITEMS USED TO CREATE THIS PIECE:

GOOD LUCK and see you soon!
