Stamping 411 Challenge

Hi Everyone,

Time for another Stamping 411 Challenge. I hope you will take the time to play along with us this week.

Here is the sketch:ssc163


…..and my simple Interpretation

Fast and Fabulous 003

I just love these flowers from the Lever Two Hostess set “Fast And Fabulous”. I decided to ink up the image with my new Concord Crush Marker and an old Olive Marker. I then used just a bit of the Daffodil Delight marker for the center and some of the stamen in the flowers.

When you ink up a stamp with markers you should huff on it to remoisten the ink before stamping. I stamped three of them. They were so pretty left white but I decided it needed just a hint of color….so I took my aqua painter and pulled color from the edges of the flowers to just give a tint of color. Easy Peasy. Give it a try…You’ll love it.

The measurements for my card are:

White Card Base textured with the Polka Dot Embossing Folder is 4 1/2 x 11

Concord Crush Mat is 3 –7/8 x 4- 7/8

White Image Piece is 3 3/4 x 4 3/4

I got to finally use the new Concord Crush Poly Twill Ribbon too……I just the way it works up for bows. Very cool.

That’s it for today. Please feel free to play along and as always…

Have a Stampinglee Good Day!
