Goosebumps!

I've had a nice crafty day today, mostly making DT stuff that I can't share yet, but here's one I made just for fun...



The first photo actually shows the colour and texture better, but it's a bit 'glary' so I've added the 2nd pic as it shows the stamps off a bit clearer.

I've used my fab Darkroom Door vintage automobiles stamp set again, I think this set's just so useful.  I started by cutting the frame shape with a Go Kreate die, and left the shape in the die so I could make an inky background, using distress inks and an ink duster brush, and then stamped one of the images and a sentiment in 'walnut stain' distress ink.  I made the background panel in the same way using small stamps from the same set.  Then I sprayed both pieces with my new favourite product Goosebumps - LOVE this stuff!  It's hard to explain but it gives a sort of shiny, bumpy, rubbery texture, such a fun effect :o)  Added some twine to finish and that's it.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

For some reason I couldn't get many blogs to load up last night, they kept freezing and crashing, so I'm sorry if I missed catching up with you.  Fingers crossed everything will be working again this evening!
