I'm trying to get into this whole "less is more" type stamping and found a few challenges to help me along my way! Both cards featured qualify for the Simplicity One Layer Wednesday Challenge: Repetition.
The balloon stamp was masked off several times and heat embossed in black. I then used various inks to color in the balloons. I punched a square and then used it as a guide to create my frame around the sentiment. I added some bling w/a glitter gel pen and sponged around the edges using yellow, green, and blue inks.
This second card also qualifies for the PaperWorks CO Sunday Sketch. This is a new challenge for me! Our card had to focus on framing. I heat embossed the small butterflies (All stamps were from the SU! Set Flight of the Butterflies) in clear and the using a scallop circle, sponged SU! Chocolate Chip Ink over the butterflies. The butterflies were ironed off. I added the large butterfly and sentiment in the middle in the same ink and a little sponging.
Play along with us! :p
Have a fab day!
