Featured Stamper at Splitcoaststampers
Over at Splitcoaststampers, there is a challenge where a Featured Stamper is chosen, and you find a card that inspires you (or, you are dying to CASE), and you change 3 things about it and make one of your own. This week, the Featured Stamper is Nancy Ruth- and she has pages and pages of wonderful cards to CASE. I only went through 10 pages of her gallery, but picked this card to CASE.
I made it two colors (and this is called Scene Silhouettes over at the Technique Junkies). I used Blue Bliss and Ballet Blue on the top, and Mellow Moss and Old Olive on the bottom. Stamped the trees in black.
The moon was made by punching out a circle out of a post it note, including the sticky part, and placing it on the paper before doing any brayering. I added stickles to the moon for a little sparkle.
The lace is called Netting Lace, and it is available in America, but I get it from Judith Adams at the Status Thimble in Australia at the Annual Smocking Arts Guild of America convention/market. Doesn't it make you think of Grandma's???
Remember when brayering on color, it goes on the smoothest on coated paper like Stampin Up Whisper White- save your Georgia Pacific for your Copics!
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you enjoyed 'The View'
