Hello to all you Stamping Challenge lovers out there.
I can't believe it is time to post jac-inks Challenge 10 already. That means 20 weeks have gone by since we started our new Challenge blog. Scarey stuff, when I think of how fast this year is flying by.
The jac-inks challenge this time is a sketch.
And here is the card I made inspired by that sketch.
The colours are"
The backing paper is from the Stampin' Up! Hostess Level One - In Color Designer Series Paper Pack, and it's been embossed using the Big Shot and the Finial Press Embossing Folder. I love how the texture creates additional interest in the background.
The tree image is from Trendy Trees and the house is from a Sale-A-Bration set form 2010. I really like the "naive" style these two stamp sets create when used together. I drew the grass in by hand using the Pear Pizzazz Stampin' Write Marker, and the Faux Stitching using the Tempting Turquoise Marker
The embossed "Thanks" is a cut down version of the Embosslits Die - Thanks. It is a Stampin' Up! exclusive die and is very versatile as well as very pretty.
It's fun using old stamp sets - and finding different ways of using them, so why don't you pull out one of your old stamp sets or use a current one, and join in the Challenge.
Until next time,
