Tanda Teaser-Initial Reaction!!!

Well I don't know where the last week has gone I'm sure but it has come round to my turn to set the Tanda Teaser Challenge .
Many thanks to Wendy and to the ladies who entered for last week.
This weeks challenge is called 'Initial Reaction' and is all about using letters on your cards.
Visit the TandaStamps blog for more information and details on how to join in.

For my card I have used the TandaStamps Beyond Wonderland Alphabet having left the plate whole to use for backgrounds rather than cutting it into single letters.I have stamped this using Versafine in Majestic Blue and embossed with clear powder.
I then used Adirondack inks in Lettuce and Denim which I applied using a baby wipe and while this was still wet I spritzed with Moonglow Glitz Spritz in Desert Moon Cactus Gold which I sealed with hairspray once dry.
I have used two sizes of my own initial handcut from chipboard.
The larger one was coloured using Encore Gold Metallic Ink and then triple embossed adding a sprinkle of Cobalt Blue and Gold embossing powders to give a marbled effect.
The smaller one was coloured using Majestic Blue Versafine and then triple embossed adding a sprinkling of gold embossing powder.
I then layered onto a cream pearl card and added fibres and flowers for embellishments.

Come along and join in. The challenge is open to anyone whether or not you are a stamper.
Have fun


  1. No Way! What a great challenge; I was just thinking about doing a letter background yesterday,then forgot all about it, but it's just what I need for a card I'm working on. Your take on it is just stunning! I love the pearly tones of your colours and your letter background is gorgeous. Thanks SO much for the inspiration, :0) mel
    P.S. I found your blog on Top Listed Stamping, & I'm so glad I did. I hope it's ok that I added you to my blogroll?
