Swirls... SweetStamps.com Challenge

Welcome to a new challenge at SweetStamps.com!  This week our theme is Swirls, and remember you have a chance to win a $20 shopping spree to the SweetStamps.com store just by playing along!  Use any products you may have for one chance, and you can double your chances by using a SweetStamps.com image!  Here is my take on this weeks challenge:





Supplies Used:


I achieved my faux wood look by using kraft paper as my base, once I had heat embossed the swirls in white I used my ink pads and a water brush to watercolor over the kraft paper in various brown inks.  Now I can't wait to see your interpretation for this challenge!

I am also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Glitter It 
(It's hard to see in the picture but I used the Spica Glitter Pen all over the flower and leaves)

Happy Crafting!
Lisa

I love the flourishes in white over your Faux Wood! And the flower is beautiful- the pop of color and the glimmer- plus how cool the way you added the sentiment- looks like it is on acetate!
