I really shouldn’t be stamping today—I have tons of stuff to do, but when I saw the CAS-ual Fridays challenge, it intrigued me. It’s a tic-tac-toe challenge—you choose any three elements from the grid in a tic-tac-toe line to put on your creation:
I am going through a lot of my stash to have a stampy yard sale, and came across this pretty silhouette stamp (no, it’s not going in the yard sale) so I stamped it on some Porcelain paper and added chipboard, ribbon and a button. I have TONS of chipboard that I never use—I am severely chipboard-challenged—so before I do put it in the yard sale, I thought I would “encourage” myself to use some of it:
I wish the image, which is stamped in Early Espresso, would have come out darker, but I guess it adds to the dreamy, imaginative feel of the card. I overstamped everything with Linen to give it a fabric-y touch; I painted the chipboard “i” with some craft paint, then highlighted it with some reinkers, very softly with a paintbrush. I also painted an orange button so that it wouldn’t seem so bright:
Some twine embellishments tied it all together. Any questions??? Give me a shout!
