The first challenge is a colour challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks.
The second challenge is from Clean & Simple Stamping.
I found the sketch challenge first and then decided on the colour challenge. Next came the stamp set to use. I knew exactly what I wanted to achieve and needed just the right stamp set to accomplish it. I love clean and simple cards and enjoy making them, but don't do it enough.
Starting with a little math and using Post-it notes I masked off the top and middle where the sentiment would go. Next, again using the Post-it notes I started with the individual lines. Each line is 3/4" wide with a small space between them. I inked up my stamp set starting with the lightest colour first and then randomly added the additional colours. Once the area had been stamped I then coloured in the area with a sponge.
Once I had all the stamping and sponging done I removed the masked area for the sentiment and using the Stamp-a-ma-jig I stamped the Sentiment.
The inside of the card has the same stamp used just across the bottom corner but with no sponging.
I have not taken part in either of these challenge sites before so I hope that I have done them both justice.
Thanks for stopping by.
