My trial with stamping

hi dear friends
As you all know, i had been winner at ICRC25 and BANU hand sent me some lovely stamps and brads .... i was super excited to start using them as they are my first set of stamps.. well i could not start right away as in jammu, i was unable to find acrylic blocks and inks .. so googled and found that old CD cases can be used as base for your stamps and i was lucky enough to find the Faber Castle ink pads in red and black ink in my local market.... and there starts my tryst with stamping and here's my FIRST EVER STAMPING CREATION

you can see in the picture, its not so clear and neat card but since its just my first with stamping, i m pretty much ok-ok with it .Although its not up to the mark but still entering it into ICRC27  to thank ICR and Banu for such a lovely gift as well as fabulous tutorials on basics of stamping on ICR
Also entering it in BGC movie inspired card as my favourite movies are many but  one of my favourite is Chandani(Bollywood)... Love Sridevi and Red roses, so here's this card for CHANDNI

I had even tried to apply Banu's masking technique here on this card but since have no punches still( ordered them from Itsy Bitsy) had cut the U shape on newspaper and used it( a cheaper but not so neater option)Banu's tutorial on masking technique can be seen here
over to few other shots

    If you have paper weights in glass or acrylic they are a substitute for the acrylic blocks!
