Here's the other card I made based on the Mama Elephant March Sketch Challenge. You can read that post here . The patterned paper is from American Crafts and boy, is it hard to get American Crafts papers here in New Zealand! This one was from a free sampler pack that came from a magazine. How did it get chosen to be used? It just happened to be sticking out from a stash of paper under my desk. Once I saw it I knew I wanted to use it. Without further ado here is my card:
The stamp set I used this time was a doily one from Rachel Greig I purchased in Australia last year. It may be the first time I have used it (hangs head in shame). Originally I wanted to use the doily stamps but they were too small so I ended up using the pre-made doilies instead and just used one of the sayings included in the set - nice script huh?
I am entering this version in two challenges:
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes: http://www.simonsaysstampschallenge.blogspot.co.nz/2013/02/simon-says-anything-goes.html
Southern Girls Challenge - #63 Waving in the Breeze (use pennants or a banner): http://southerngirlschallenge.blogspot.co.nz/2013/02/challenge-63-waving-in-breeze.html
Now, I call the little part I stamped the greeting on a 'pennant' but I'm not sure if that's its correct name or not. Apologies if I have entered incorrectly if they aren't actually called pennants.
Stamp (Rachel Greig), White cardstock (Stampin' Up!), Patterned Paper (American
Crafts), Ink (Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Faded Jeans), doily. The other cardstock
was from my scrap file.
