Hi Stampers! Welcome back! Oh my goodness am I super excited to share my creation with you today!! I combined two blog challenges into one for my card. The color challenge from Fab Friday
and the design challenge at The Friday Mashup
. This is my second time combining both challenges, it must be something about Fridays! I was challenged by both blogs and so happy that I was, my creative mojo got a great boost!
I used a technique called scherenschnitte stamping
and I found the tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers. I hate to admit that this was the first time I inked up the stamp set called Forest Friends, even though it is now retired. When I first got the stamp set I had an idea of what I wanted to use it for, but I never got around to it, until now. So glad I remembered I have this set and that I never got rid of it!
I LOVE HOW THIS CAME OUT!!! I'm so proud of myself. Wanna hear something funny, it took me longer to cut out the polaroid frame! It kept tearing and tearing...I finally had to glue it very carefully. Cutting out the deer and the bunny was easier! LOL.
Here's your Mashup Challenge:
- Create a project with a "Game/Woodsy type Animal (Deer, Moose, Turkey, etc). "
- Create a project using a "Woodgrain look. "
- Or Mash it Up and create a "project with Woodgrain and a Woodsy animal image. "
I always appreciate receiving comments on my blog, let me know if you have tried this technique before or if you have a retired stamp set you just inked up for the first time!
Thanks so much for stopping by, until next time!
