Featured Stamper, Yo Yo Celebrate~
So it's a soggy Sunday here, makes for a lazy day, and perfect for heading over the SCS and Beth's Featured Stamper Challenge. I'll dive into the book, Dance of Death by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child, I am reading a little later. I started it last night and couldn't put it down!
Anyway, the objective of this challenge is to select a card from the gallery Beth has selected for the week and tweak a card from it, changing at least 2 things. I chose this card from Mary Jo's gallery and tweaked it by:
1. Stamp set and colors
2. Simplified the focal layers
3. Changed the ribbon from black and white to striped wasabi.
As with any card I showcase here, if you click on it, it will open it up in a larger format. The Soft Sky flower image from the set is barely perceptible in the smaller format, but is visible if you click. The branch is stamped in wasabi, the bird guava, and the sentiment is black. After layering the image onto pomegranate I added black mini brads to balance out the black from the sentiment and the running words behind the image layer on the card base. The image panel is then layered onto a scalloped guava layer with dimensionals before adhering to the card, again with dimensionals. I just love dimensionals! I made 10 cards with one piece of the patterned paper, more cards for my stash!
Supplies are basically SU! with the exception of the white card stock which is Neenah Classic Crest Solar White. It's a nice sturdy card stock, substantial enough for the base, and doesn't collapse like Whisper White. Black mini brads, available through StarlitStudio, and Nestabilities Scalloped Square die round out the non-SU! products.
