Good morning everyone! And happy March! Can you believe it is here already?
I wanted to share one of the cards I made for one of the WinterHaven challenges over at stamphaven.com. I made this card for the Naked Stamping Challenge, and the rules were that you could only use:
1) White and/or cream-colored cardstock
2) At least THREE stamps
3) Ink - brand(s) and color(s) of your
I thought this one would be really hard, but it turned out being one of my favorite challenges. Normally I love using tons of bling and BasicGrey paper :) but it was a nice change to use my own style and make a card completely unique to me.
So, without further ado, here it is:
I used three stamps: Autumn Leaves Flowers, Autumn Leaves scrolls, and Stampabilities sentiment.
I used the flower for the background of the card...and used masking to make all the different colors. I have three colors total used on the card: Olive Pastel, Cocoa, and Dark Brown. (All ColorBox inks)
To make the strip, cut the cream cardstock, and pressed the cocoa ink pad directly onto it. Then I stamped the scroll in cocoa and Olive Pastel ink, and inked the edges with the dark brown ink.
After that, I finished up by stamping the flowers with Olive pastel, cut them out, inked the edges with Dark Brown, and used dimensionals to stagger the flowers.
Last, I stamped the sentiment on with Olive Pastel Ink, inked the edges with cocoa ink, and put the card all together!
Thanks for looking!
