I found a new progressive challenge at From the Heart Stamps so decided to give it ago. This month the image has a harvest theme, very appropriate as all the 5 churches in our Benefice have had their Harvest Festivals and Harvest Suppers. I am now all apple pied out until next year!
white stamping card
red and black card
Budding vine embossing folder
round and round scalloped dies
red pigment ink and red embossing powder
Apple Market digi stamp set – From the Heart Stamps
Just for you stamp
Spectrum Noir pens
Adirondack Meadow ink pad
I printed out the line image to the size I wanted onto the white card and coloured with my Spectrum Noir Pens. On a spare piece of the white card I stamped and embossed the Just for You greeting before cutting it with a circle die and cutting a mat with the scalloped circle. I used the budding vine embossing folder to emboss another piece of the white card then highlighted the embossing with the green ink. I matted up all the elements on black card. I made an A5 card blank from an A4 piece of black card and attached a slightly smaller piece of red card onto the front. I then arranged my elements how I wanted them before sticking them down.
So just a teaser for you, how many pens did I use to colour in my image? Here is a clue.
Thanks for stopping bye. Take care.
Did you guess correctly, I used 39 pens!
