Hello My Paper Crafting Peeps!
I’m back again today to share the next CAS-ual Fridays Challenge, and boy, oh boy is it a goodie!! This week you are challenged to create a clean and simple design using at least three monochromatic shades of the color of your choice PLUS chocolate brown.
This week’s amazing sponsor is Stampotique Originals – and by original I mean FREAKIN’ INCREDIBLE! - and they very generously shared images with each of the Girl Fridays to create projects to inspire all of you. How nice was that?!! Thank you Stampotique Originals – your images were amazing to work with! Stampotique Originals has also provided a wonderful prize package for this week’s TGIF winner, but you’ll have to head over to the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge Blog in order to find out what it is.
This is what I came up with for the challenge, and I have to say I am super happy with the end result. I got to work with a gorgeous wood-mounted rubber stamp that stamped like buttah! The image I used was called Branch (#2008). I stamped it three times in VersaMark onto three different shades of green textured cardstock, and heat embossed each image using Chocolate ZING Embossing Powder. I placed each image behind the negative squares that were created using a die from PTI. The sentiment was also stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed with the same embossing powder. I love how earthy this turned out – a look that I’m not usually drawn to. Love those yummy greens against that chocolate brown card base, don’t you?
