It's stating the obvious, but I Love Stamps. And stamping. And one layer cards. And challenges. So when Simon Says Monday Challenge came up with "We Love Stamps" for this week's theme, I'm straight in there!
I've used the colour scheme from City Crafter of black/grey/white with a splash - red for me.
It's a one layer challenge at Less is More:
Penny Black Saturday Challenge, it's all about making a valentine or other card for someone special:
And on the Penny Black blog, the Website Wonder challenge is to use anything from the new Happy Everything release.
I've used the Bashful die, but I've used it as a stencil, so I hope that counts! I sponged Black Soot and Barn Door through the stencil for the main image, then repositioned it and sponged lightly, getting a light grey colour with just a hint of the red around the flower. Unfortunately I also managed to get some red on the underside of the masking tape which transferred onto the card as I repositioned the stencil. So I just repeatedly stuck the masking tape down on the card, transferring more red smudges. I added the sentiment in black, but decided it needed a bit more black, so I used the edge of an old credit card to stamp some random black lines on the card.
I'm getting way behind with blog visits, so I'm hoping to catch up with everyone tonight or tomorrow!
