Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful

Hello!

Happy International Women's Day to you :)  I am delighted to be a participant and sponsor of this year's Women's Day blog hop which has been organised by an amazing team of talented women.  This is the second year of the hop and it looks set to be a fun and creativity filled event with lots of sponsors and inspiration along the way.


Funky Fossil is one of the sponsors - you can win a £15 voucher to spend in store!

We have so many stamps and stencils that would work for the theme 'Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful' but in the end I decided to use our Abstract Beauty stamp set to make this card:


I simply created a background by blending distress oxides and lightly inking over our Fierce Words stencil.  Stamped the image in black and used our Butterfly Flurry stencil with black paint.  I added some word stickers by Leonie Pujol and a strip of black cardstock at the bottom and the card was done!

I hope that you like it and that you enjoy the hop.  Jane's Doodles is the next stop to visit and if you have got lost or want to start from the beginning, head here for the full list....
