So! What's New?

This week at Allsorts Challenges our theme is
'SOMETHING NEW' hosted by our lovely  teamie, Mervi.

This covers a vast area of new things and we would
love you to tell us what is new in your creation.
[A new home, baby, die, inks etc]

My "something new" is a new technique I have
tried with my stamping. The technique is
REFLECTION stamping. I have shared the link.
This was not that simple as I did not have the
correct brayer but achieved it
eventually using sponges.
Our prize this week is

My DT card...
I have used stamps from Lavinia stamps and these too are new.
TH distressed inks, masking and a sentiment from my stash was used.

I hope you enjoy our theme this week and please follow the theme
to be eligible to win. Don't forget to mention 
"What's New" for you..

Too much fun in the pool, one broken toe and one huge
'moon boot' to wear for 6 weeks....[and not a drop of 
alcohol was used for this injury]

Sorry about the injury Annie hope it heels quickly. Here I am afraid to go out in case I slip on the black ice that we have at the moment and you get injured because it is hot and you wanted to be cooler.

Wonderful card and I am always fascinated by silhouettes so extra nice for me

Love Chrissie xx

Lisa Lynn said...

Your card is another beauty. So Sorry about your foot/toe! That is such a bummer.

Pia S said...

Oh wow. This looks outstanding. Mirror or shadow stamping doesn't sound or look easy but the effect is awesome! Super inking job!
Hope you had a lovely Christmas and a great new year celebration. We just had a quiet and comfortable evening at home yesterday. I'm not much for celebrating New Years, I don't fancy all the fire works.
