New Challenge Blog!!!!
My friend Siobhan has started a new challenge blog, Use it Tuesday—Challenging you to dig into your scrappy stash! She is a hoarder… just like the rest of us and I think this is a great push to use up those goodies that you have been tucking away for another day!
Challenge #1 is to make something with an image you have not previously used for a project. This challenge hits home with me… since I seem to be a stamp hoarder. I used the set Swirled Spring Life, a hostess set from The Angel Company. Which as it turns out, not only have I not used it… but I have two of them… don’t laugh.
I tried out the faux chalkboard technique by stamping in white on black CS and coloring with colored pencils… then I had some major fun doodling. I’ve never doodled like this on a card, but loved it! The wood grain is from a fiskars texture plate inked up with Burnt Umber.
Stamp: Swirled Spring Life
Ink: New Canvas, Burnt Umber Palette
Paper: kraft, black, pink CS
Other: rick rack, prisma pencils, fiskar texture plate
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look, please let me know what you think. Swing by and check out the challenge blog and play along, you are sure to have fun!
