We're having some wicked weather in PA today, so I'm just stamping my heart out and catching up on challenges. First up is the mid-week throwdown over at the S&S blog. This week's theme is to create an "any hero" card. This card will contain a message to any soldier serving overseas just to let him/her know that I support them. I used the SNSS patriot Cocoa digi image for this, coloring with Copics. The sentiment was computer generated and I added a few mini brads in red, white & blue. The top note die was embossed with a Sizzix ef. The dp is SU! baja breeze.
And here's my entry for the Stampin' B's challenge #108 which is to create a monochromatic blue card with paper piecing. I very seldom do monochromatic cards because I just get lost trying to match colors and I'm never happy with the results. This one is OK I suppose, but I let all the dp do the work for me here. I used Websters papers for this, stamping the MFP clock on dp and embossing it with clear detail ep, then cutting it out and popping it up. I doubt you can see the DP it was stamped on because the light cast a nice glare on the top. You might be able to see it if you click the photo to enlarge it, but this was the best picture I could get with it. The sentiment panel was a little frame design on the DP, so I stamped the sentiment inside of it and cut it out by hand. I added some Tim Holtz hardware to the face of the clock and a Quickutz corner diecut.
I might be back with more later today, so stay tuned :)
