Midnight Madness Sketch #16 and Ready, Steady, Stamp Four
The Ready Steady Stamp Challenge was kind of hard this week so I ended up creating 2 cards for it! Here are the ingredients.
The letter A
Brown, cream and white
I made this card first using the great sketch from the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge then I thought it might be too cute! My daughter's name is Amy so I made this birthday card for her. I found some canvas cards with envelopes at Hobby Lobby.
I painted a chipboard A and then stamped it with a flower stamp from StampinUp. I painted the brown strip and added KI Gloo to make the "raindrops". I cut the scalloped circle with the Cuttlebug and the saying is Queen Kat design which is embossed in white. I sponged brown around the cream panel and the papers are Basic Grey. I added a cream flower and button and a ribbon to the A.
Since I thought the first one might be too cute I decided to try another one for the Ready, Steady, Stamp challenge. I also wanted to make better use of the canvas card. I painted the card with red, orange and brown paint. After drying I brushed brown paint on the tree stamp by PSX and stamped it on the card. I added the "raindropa" and stamped the saying (Postmodern Design). I sponged the edges of the cream panel that says Fall with brown ink. I thought the challenge said scalloped edge instead of scalloped circle so I messed up a little and used a scalloped rectangle! I ended up liking both cards. Thanks for stopping by!
