I'm stopping by just long enough to post my card for Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge #123. We were challenged to stamp our own backgrounds.
I started with SC 382 from Splitcoaststampers for my layout, but I deviated a bit. I changed the shape of the center panel, and instead of a die cut, I added a sentiment and a side bow in that area. The sketch did get my mojo going, and I really like this layout for using up scraps! I matched two skinny strips of the polka dot dp together and hid the seam under the seam binding. The doily die cut was in my "things to use sometime pile" and was a good color match to the ink I used.
Here's my card:
Stamps: ODBD "Grunge Cross" background stamp (I turned it on its side) and "Never Give Up"
Papers: White, pink, tan, polka dot dp from Basic Grey "Sultry"
Ink: Vintage Photo Distress Ink, Versafine Onyx Black
Other: Brown seam binding, Bow Easy, MFT Doily die, Spellbinders circle die, sponge
I have tests this week, and I am really looking forward to taking that last one on Wednesday! I'm hoping to not be so exhausted by that point that I can't enjoy some stamping time on Wednesday night..... we'll see!
Thanks for stopping by!
ETA: Thank you to Our Daily Bread Designs for selecting my card for a Shining the Light Award!
