That's right, it's a new month and time for another themed challenge at STAMPlorations. "Stamps and Borders". Does it stump you? It sure stumped me.
But as I was perusing my stamps the name of one set caught my attention. VIGNETTE: Art Deco Border Builders. Duh!
Now what exactly is a border? Did I even create a border here? But I used a stamp called border so I'm callin' it good ;)))
Stamped the pattern on my cardbase. Overstamped a random few with white ink. Made a stencil using a label die (so I'm joining the fun over at Paper Crafting Challenges #11 again) and piled on the modelling paste. Before it was too dry, but not too wet (yep, I had to resmooth it a couple times before I got it right) I stamped the stamp into the paste for that wonderful texture. It took forever to dry but then a few tissue paper scalloped circles under a square piece of CS for my sentiment and voila!
Why don't you put your thinking cap on and give "Stamps and Borders" a try. Remember, there are good prizes. If you win the monthly challenge, you receive a stamp set of your choice. If you win and you used STAMPlorations stamps, you win two sets of your choice. Pretty cool, eh?
And on a side note, Shery R. is starting a new challenge soon called The Mixed Media Card Challenge. It's about Mixed Media (duh!) and CAS. She's got a DT call going on right now. Check it out.
Happy weekend, all.
