Ok, so what have I never done before, you may well ask. Nothing as remarkable as ski down the Mattehorn but still a significant happening in my life! (I really do need to get out more!) I have made a’card’ for a specific challenge that is not a progressive freebie one!
Sarn’s Sarntangle Rubber Stamp Set (these were a limited edition that have now sold out but you can get some digi ones from her blog: Stamping For Pleasure.)
X-Press It card cut to ATC size
Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad
The stamp starts (or ends if you turn it around the other way) with the swirl which I have used as the ‘p’ in Spring. I added the other letters with the multiliner pen trying to make it look like the swirls in the original stamp.
The leaves and swirls are coloured with the Copics in spring colours (although when I Googled Spring colours it came up with just about every colour in the rainbow and more!)
The black border is added freehand using the multiliner pen.
Now if I am being honest, the reason I have never made anything for a specific challenge, other than progressive freebies, is that I am never organised enough but I was determined to do this one maily so I can plug Sarn’s stamps and her fantastic blog, which is well worth a visit, but also so I can feel the ink and rubber again after all the digi stamping I have been doing.
Thanks for stopping by. Take care.
