Anyhoo, STAMPlorations has a great theme for this month's challenge:
My cardmaking (and menopausal) self loves layers. Light and airy layers that is...
I started with this wonderful wreath from the Joyful stamp set. Not ready to ink it up in green just yet, and having seen this delightful inspiration photo from Cure for the Monday Blues
Thinking of You.
Wanna count the layers with me? I've got a cardbase, a stamped sentiment BG spritzed with a good coating of water/Perfect Pearls mixture, a swatch of tissue paper which is all nice and gold-ink-splotched from squishing into leftover spray ink from another project (which you unfortunately can't see in the pic), a gold-ink-striped vellum banner, my heat-embossed-on-vellum wreath, a die cut branch and a teensy gold birdie perched on it. I think that may be the longest sentence ever posted on my blog. Sorry Hemingway.
So how will you interpret "layers"? Grab those scraps you've got laying around and put 'em on a card. Or do some layered stamping. Give it your best shot and join us this month.
As always, there are prizes to be had. I f you are chosen winner of the November challenge you will win two stamp sets if your project used STAMPlorations stamps, one if not. This would be a good time to remind you that the oh-so-fabulous-and-perfect-for-endless-techniques November release (watch for it soon) is available at a great bundle price ($42) until November 11th.
And since it's a busy time of year, in November you will not be required to play in all of the challenges to win the random prize. Each entry will get you a chance at the prize of three digi stamps coming soon to the STAMPlorations shop. Digi stamps. Less tactile but definitely more versatile...
I'll be back next week with more creations made with the Joyful set. Hope to see you. Happy weekend.
