Hello! Time for something a little different on StampinByHannah. I was recently a Guest Design Team member for a challenge blog (you can find my posts here and there!) and just loved taking part in the challenges – so, I’m going to try to enter a challenge each week.
This week, I’m playing along at Freshly Made Sketches, Challenge #183
I love a simple sketch, probably because I’m a simple card maker, but I think this one has plenty of scope for a more complex card.
I’ve use one of my current favourite background stamping techniques one this one to create this soft, stamped effect. Ink up your background stamp with Sahara Sand (or any other pale colour) and stamp off once. Then lay your card stock onto the stamp, and rub gentle circles in patches across the card stock. Here I’ve used Something Lacy from the Spring/Summer catalogue – isn’t it stunning!
The panel on the right is a piece of Very Vanilla matted into a piece of Early Espresso. The stamps here at from Your Perfect Day – the most lovely Wedding stamp set! and are stamped in Sahara Sand and Early Espresso. I’ve layered this panel onto the card with some dimensionals, after wrapping a length of Early Espresso Bakers Twine a couple of times around the card and tying a bow (I think it might even be my best bow yet – not bad for someone who is very bow challenged!) .
I’m rather proud of that bow actually!
