TAKING ON A NEW CHALLENGE

Hello blog friends!

I'm here with a very quick post - I saw the February challenge over at Altenew and thought I'd play along.  I absolutely LOVE these stamps and am having a great time playing with the ones I have.  

The set I used in this card are from the Persian Motifs set.  

The challenge is to use this inspiration


Here is my card 



The images were stamped with VersaMark and then I used Ranger detail gold ep and heat set them.  I used my Distress Markers and water brush to color the image...I was careful with the amount of water I used because this is not watercolor paper.  The cs is Neenah Solar White 110#.  The focal layer is from MFT Blueprints 15.  

Thank you for stopping by.

CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE AT THE OUTLAWZ CHALLENGES

Hello blog friends!  

There's a new Sunday CAS challenge at Outlawz Challenges and I didn't want to miss the opportunity to tell you about it.  

It's an RAK (Random Act of Kindness) challenge and here is Pryn's challenge

This week we challenge you to create a CAS card or project to give as a RAK, otherwise known as a Random Act of Kindness.  Let's spread peace by sharing our art with others.  Any theme, any colors...keep it CAS and brighten someone's day just because :) 

I hope you'll find some time to play along with us.  

Here's my card.


The stamp set I used to make my card is from Mama Elephant called "Sweet Havana"  I also used the matching dies.  

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you'll come on over to the Outlawz CAS challenge and play along with us.  Submissions will be accepted until 12:00 midnight Saturday.  


WHAT IF? WEDNESDAY TIME AT THE HOUSE THAT STAMPS BUILT

Hello blog friends!  

It's Wednesday again and time for another What if? Wednesday challenge at The House That Stamps Built and today is a sketch challenge! 



Pretty straight forward sketch, don't ya think?  You can have some fun flipping this sketch in various ways or use it just like it is.  Either way, I hope you'll give it a try and enter your project over at The House.  You will then be in the running for a $25.00 gift certificate for some awesome Repeat Impression stamps.  Get the details at The House.  

Here's my card using this sketch



LOL!  Have you ever had a day when you look in the mirror and this sort of image is looking back at you and this is exactly what you were thinking?  I decided to have some fun with this sketch and use a stencil and stencil paste to create the side panel.  The stencil paste was white and I added some Perfect Pearls to get the color I wanted before stenciling it onto the card base.  

The image is RI #5306-J "Chimp".  After stamping the image I colored it with Copic Markers, then added some Wink of Stella clear glitter pen to the entire face.  Using a classic round Spellbinder die, I cut it out and then pressed it into VersaMark ink, added some clear ep and heat set it for a high gloss appearance.  I framed it with the next sized classic round die in the set.  The sentiment is RI #7011-F "This Day".  

There's a 10% off Repeat Impressions stamps code on my side bar if you'd like to pick up some of these fabulous Repeat Impressions stamps.  I promise you will love them.  Just use the code rr10cw when checking out.   

Thanks for stopping by.  For more inspiration using this WIW sketch, have a gander at what the other Rock Stars have done with it.

Enjoy the day!
