Hey y'all! Happy Tuesday! I have been a busy bee for the last few days, sorry I went missing. But I'm back, and it's time for the very first Serendipity Stamps Design Team Challenge! This month, our challenge was a Garden theme. Hmmm...that's a tough one...I don't know if I have any "Garden" themed stamps...*wink*
English Rose stamp (yes again! I think I'm addicted...), and stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black on Neenah Classic Cream cardstock. I decided to colored the image with Copic Markers...boy did that image pop out so easily! Then, using my Stampamajig, I placed the "And the Song" Longfellow quote alongside the roses...I was so happy it fit so perfectly! Once that was all finished, I cut and embossed my main image panel with the Deckled Rectangle Nestabilities, and sponged the edges heavily with my Close to Cocoa inkpad.
To create my card base, I cut a piece of Neenah Classic Cream cardstock to 5 1/4" x 10 1/2" and folded it in half to create a square card. I cut a 5" square panel of Prism Suede Brown Dark for the base panel, and added a panel of River Rock cardstock that I embossed with the Textile Embossing Folder and sponged with Old Olive and Close to Cocoa ink. Of course, I needed a little more color, so I added a strip of Prism Intense Pink cardstock and punched the edge with my Martha Stewart punch. As a finishing touch, I added some sparkly, sheer ribbon, tied in a bow.
Well, I hope you like seeing something a little different than my normal stuff...I love working with these stamps! What do you think?
If you're still with me (yay for you!) don't forget to check out all the fabulous creations from the other Serendipity DT members.
Have a fabulous day!!
