Updated Oopsie

New Kitchen Sink Challenge

In my last post here, I said this card fulfilled the Kitchen Sink In the Garden Challenge....but I forgot I was only allowed to use KS stamps! And I had used a SU stamp. So I redid it, plus I wanted to fill you in a bit on how I did the image. This KS stamp is a 3-step stamp, so after I stamped my three images, I stamped the first image again on a post-it note and cut it out to make a mask. I placed the mask over my stamped image and stamped the leaves, then removed the mask. Then I stamped the ladybug in red & black. I took a clear yogurt lid and laid it over my image, and using my craft knife, cut around the lid, stopping where there was a leaf. Then I cut the leaves out by hand. I gave the flower a shadow by using my pastels and a q-tip; then I daubered the edges of my scallop circle to add a little depth. I thought the bottom right corner looked a little plain, so I added some punchouts, which will also qualify this for today's SCS Challenge--No Hardware!! I wanted my sentiment to be lined up a little differently so that it would fit the white space, so I actually cut it apart, so now I can align it any way I want! The beauty of clear stamps!
Thanks for visiting!

  3. Awesome! Great idea to use a lid for the circle and then hand cut the leaves for the out-of-box technique. VERY pretty card!

    ...it also qualifies for Sharon's (notimetostamp) challenge yesterday, which was to use a bug on a card. :)
