Create, what else should you do? I know, add in challenges that you can find online!
I just received a new stamp set from Hero Arts and I just had to sit down and play. First off, I took Kimber's Saturday sketch at 2 peas and the color combination at The Play Date Cafe to create my card. How does it get better then some sunny yellow?
Here is a close-up. This also goes along with the Cas-ual Fridays challenge to use strips. This set of stamps is all borders so that makes this fun and easy. The yellow is Distress Ink in Mustard Seed. The stamp pads that I used at by Clearsnap.This is The Play Date Cafe color inspiration piece.
Here is Kimber's sketch.
Next card uses the retro sketch for this week plus this also fits that Cas-ual Fridays strip challenge since I just stamped the borders over and over. It also fits the Moxie Fab Hexagon challenge.
I created a piece using the alphabet border stamp that I just stamped repeatedly and then colored with some Distress Markers sprayed with water. Next I cut out shapes with my LifeStyle Hexagon dies.This is the retro sketch.
And, just for fun, more of my playing around with this stamp set!!!
After I stamped the rows of butterflies, I colored them by just running my Distress stain over each row. I added LOTS of the ink so that when I picked it up it would run. I sprayed it with water to help with that. This also fits the Cas-ual Friday strip challenge.
I used a Kreaxions 4-in-1 punch to create that great border along the bottom edge of my card. I just love what a punched border adds.
