It’s a Stretch Stamping 411 Challenge Card

Hi Everyone!

Welcome to another Sketch Challenge from Stamping 411

It’s that time of week again where we get to use our imaginations and let them run wild. Here is the latest sketch:


….and my interpretation:


It's a Stretch Challenge Card 144 004

I used the long (no pun intended) neglected “It’s a Stretch” Stamp Set for this sketch. I immediately know I wanted to use this set and make different size vases.

I used white for my card base and cut it at 4 1/4 x 11

The pink and white piece of Designer Series Paper is from our Sweet Pea Designer pack and it too cool for words. This piece is cut to 2  3/4 x 4  1/4.

Then we have the little scraps of Black that were sitting on my stamp area….and I wondered if there was enough black in the image to use black. Well I kind of like the two piece effect…don’t you?

My Image piece of white is cut at 2 x 4 and dotted with my Stampin’ Write Marker. I stamped the image in Black Stazon and colored in with my Aqua Painter and Watercolor Wonder Crayons.

Once completed I wanted to add a little shine to the Vases…so added a bit of Crystal Effects onto the water area. make sure to let this dry for awhile and do not try to heat set. You will have a mess if you do.

Let’s not forget the infamous Polka Dot Embossing Folder for the front of my card either. I’m beginning to believe it’s not a real card (for me) unless it has it on there somewhere…..I’m such a Polka Dot Person!!!

Anyway, that’s my challenge card for today and I hope you enjoyed it. I thank you for your continued support and visits to my blog. You guys are the BESTEST!!!! Don’t forget to Play along……….

Have a Stampinglee Good Day
