Double Challenge Birthday

March 14, 2012

I liked the look of the colour challenge at Just Add Ink this week and teamed it with the sketch challenge at Stamping 411.

I stamped onto Pool Party card stock using Pool Party ink using the largest image from the Extreme Elements stamp set.  I wrapped it with Early Expresso 1/4″ Grosgrain Ribbon and attached it to scored and folded Early Expresso card stock.  I stamped “happy birthday” from the Elementary Elegance (Sale-A-Bration) stamp set using Early Expresso ink in the bottom right hand corner.  I attached a piece of Island Indigo card stock to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped four of the images from the Extreme Elements stamp set onto Whisper White card using Pool Party, Island Indigo and Early Expresso (which I stamped off once onto scrap paper first) ink.  I stamped the image from the Need for Speed stampset using Early Expresso ink onto Whisper White card stock and cut it out. 

I used a blender pen to pick up ink from inside the lid of the Early Expresso ink pad and lightly coloured the car and attached it to the stamped Whisper White card stock.  I added an Early Expresso mat which has one edge punched using the Scallop Border Punch to the image panel and then attached it to the Island Indigo panel.

Pretty simple.  I’d love to know what you think?

Bye for now, Kris.

    Great card Kris. Love all the grungy background stamping you’ve done. These were great colours for ‘boy’ cards, weren’t they. Thanks for playing along with us at JAI this week.
