Curtain Call Challenge ACT39

12 Comments

Hello again!

I managed to do another challenge card … a couple of days ago … and thought I better post it … before the deadline passes! (I have a habit of missing the deadlines! 😀 ) This is a colour challenge from Stacey’s Stamping Stage and I instantly LOVED this colour combo. (Probably because green is my favourite colour … go figure!)

This was also for a special friend’s birthday! I hope I haven’t spoilt the surprise! (again!) The medallion is actually a combination of the Certainly Celery & the Wild Wasabi ink. I inked up the rubber with Certainly Celery and very lightly stamped this off onto scrap paper … leaving a little ink on the stamp. Then I added some Wild Wasabi randomly over the stamp using a sponge! Isn’t it a lovely effect! The “Fresh Cuts” leaves were also a combination of the two greens … and a combination of “stamped off” & direct to card stamping to give different depths of colour! Pity the pic doesn’t show the contrast a little better. I have another “to do” list for today … so better get moving! Stamp club tonight … we are doing two techniques … “Kissing” & “3D Stamping”! I will show you those sometime next week! Have a happy day! Stampin’ Hugs xxx

      Andrea adds: Oh hunny! I don’t want you to feel that you are answerable to me! I promise I won’t worry … unless a few days go by. I would hate to have that pressure to visit a blog … and would never want to put that on to someone else! So … please don’t stress if you don’t get here! LOL … I really didn’t mean to worry you! Now that we have done the mutual apology thing … just know that I am always happy to see you … but don’t ever feel pressured to be here! Hugs xxaxx
