STAMPlorations sketch #24

Time for the last STAMPlorations sketch of 2014. Crazy eh?


A sketch so much to my liking, I used it for a card I made for a multi-ink stamping submission call. It wasn't accepted. Turns out no cards were. Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking magazine is closing its doors. Bummer. Tangent.


Aren't these Trendy Leaves fabby? I inked them with Distress and Adirondack inks. Spritzed with some water. Stamped them a second time, just inking the edges of the stamps with a darker shade of ink. So much fun.

Added a sentiment from Holiday Artsy cuz I thought they looked like the last leaves of autumn. Kinda sad. And added one dew drop (Glossy Accents) to the red leaf.

The challenge will be open until December 28th. As always there are prizes to be had. You can even enter three times. Julie B. is joining us as guest designer. Check out her card and those from the DT. Join us if you have a moment.

Love your bright colors on those leaves and the two tone stamping! Does not matter, that we had similar thoughts on this one. Personally I love those leaves and probably will use them quite often....

Maria,
I know you are grieving about the closing of the Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking Magazine - but your talent is amazing and your art is beautiful (such as this example - that totally blows me away!). Keep creating and your fantastic pieces will find outlets quickly!
Hugs!
