I get really excited when 1pm rolls round on a Monday so I can see what challenge Linda, from Studio L3, has set us this week. I confess to not being as excited by last weeks but this weeks - which is to follow Tim's September 2008 technique looked like fun! It was really simple and this was my take on it.I cut a tag with my trusty Vagabond from cream cardstock (I don't have any watercolour paper -
what an oversight!) I bought PaperArtsy's Hot Pick 1005 from Linda and Karen at LB Crafts this week as I knew as soon as I saw the challenge that I needed this stamp set! I used Lettuce, Sunshine Yellow, Sunset Orange, Red Pepper
and Purple Twilight Adirondack Pigment Inks with the flower and grass stamps just as Tim suggested. Then I used purple and red on the 'secret garden' stamp which I didn't mist as I wanted it to be quite clear. I overstamped (in Old Paper Distress Ink) with the curly swirly stamp. I distressed the edges with Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink and added an orange ribbon. So easy and really effective - will be doing this one more often!
Just a quick tip: over on Stacy's blog is an amazing Tim giveaway! Check it out!
Does anyone know why Blogger has suddenly made my posts all central? All very odd.
