Hi and welcome to my blog.
We have a brand new hostess this week at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. Louise has set us a sketch challenge, and a rather unusual one too. When I first saw it, it reminded me of a card I made a while back using the retiform technique, so I thought it would be fun to make another …
It was difficult deciding which stamp set to use – there are so many that would be perfect for this challenge. After some deliberating, I chose the “joyous celebrations” set, as it had lots of small images to make patterns with…
I loved the vintage look the sponging gave to the card …
Not a lot of supplies were needed – just some inks, cardstock and a stamp set! If you like this technique and would like to try it for yourself, SplitCoast Stampers have a fab tutorial available.
I hope you like my card for this week. Now it’s time to see what the rest of the Design Team have been up to at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. We do hope you’ll join us.
stamps: joyous celebrations;
inks: early espresso, cherry cobbler, crumb cake;
cardstock: very vanilla, cherry cobbler;
accessories: sponge daubers.
All supplies from Stampin’ Up unless otherwise stated.
