The Male Room - #63 Fireworks

Today is to be my last gig as a DT member at The Male Room. And what a fitting challenge theme - always good to go out with a bang!

Well I don't have any firework stamps so I had to be a bit inventive. The gorgeous grunge I'm sure you'll all recognise, but the starburst is actually one of the layers that make up the poinsettia from the Uniko Jingle Bells stamp set. I'm always saying how versatile Uniko stamps are and I think this just proves a point!

Once I'd done all the stamping in the riot of colours that you get iwht fireworks exploding I die cut a double stitched rectangle to one side and then inlaid it back into the base card.

Stamps: SU, Gorgeous Grunge; Uniko, All Occasion Sentiments #6, Simply Said II, Jingle Bells
Inks: Kaleidacolor, Berry Blaze & Riviera; Versafine, onyx black
Die: MFT Die-namics, double stitched rectangles

Now make sure you go visit the rest of The Male Room DT for more inspiration - HERE. Well this will be the last time I say that last sentence so all I need to do now is say thanks to everyone at The Male Room for having me and to Deborah in particular who works tirelessly behind the scenes.  It's been fun and I've learnt loads.

Great to have you visit today, huge thanks winging your way.  And keep crafting!
