Blogger Challenge, Week #12


Wow, we've been doing this for 12 weeks now huh? Doesn't seem that long. I really had something else in mind for this week, but it didn't work out. This card, however, did and I was pleased with it since it's the first time I've used the stamp itself.


This week our challenge was "Inspiration" again. What inspires us? I have one person that I absolutely adore her work and a card she sent me awhile back inspired my card this week. Please check out the original card at Jane's Addiction . I also participated in the color challenge for this week on SCS. The colors were Always Artichoke, Taken with Teal and Purely Pomegranate. I tell you I thought I would barf with those colors together but they really worked good together and I loved what I saw from other so figured I'd give it a try. I actually made a few cards using this color combo.


Well, on to my card for this week, sorry the pic is a little crooked:

Stamp set is by Karen Stolper at American Art Stamp, Canvas background
Colors: Always Artichoke, Purely Pomogranate, Taken with Teal, Very Vanilla
Inks: All colors above plus Black Stazon
Accessories: Twill Tape, Aquapainter, Oval punch for the shadow underneath (cut oval punch out of a piece of cardstock and put cardstock over spot I wanted, then sponged on Sahara Sand)

Make sure to check out the other inspiring works of our blogger's on the right hand sidebar.

Have a great weekend!
