The challenge this month was 'newness' to create a card using something new, for a new occasion, and using a technique that is new to us. I did a little more stamping on this card than I usually do and that is something fairly new to me, my stamp set is new and, I'm using this card towards my new year's resolution to send out more cards to my stamping friends.
I began by stamping my background using early espresso ink and the small flower stamp. I stamped the rich razzleberry card stock using rich razzleberry ink- I like the tone on tone effect it gives. Then I stamped my main image three times. Once using early espresso ink, once using rich razzleberry ink and one more time using pretty in pink ink. I did this because I wanted to cut out the pink and razzleberry flowers and place them over my main espresso image.
Next, I did a bit of faux stitching using my SU mat pack, paper piercing tool, and a white gel pen. My flower image panel was placed on my card using dimensionals. My ribbon is SU pretty in pink ribbon.
Be sure to stop by and check out the other cards from the members in our blog group. I'll list their blogs below. Again, my apologies for not posting my card sooner. Have a great day, thanks for stopping by!
