KW #49

Wow! I finally got one of these done on time! It really helps when you are desperate to do some stamping and want to play with the new colours! 😉

Hubby offered to take the boy and go for a ‘boys hour’ and play with the remote control car down at the local shopping centre carpark and I couldn’t resist stamping instead doing of the dishes/washing/ironing/etc!! Hey, a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do! Right?!

Anyway, Kristina’s Challenge #49 was:

and here is my card using the colours and the Wanted Stamp Set……

I layered Vellum over the stamped background to mute the colours a little and used black brads to fasten the vellum to the cardstock. I also used the narrow black grosgrain ribbon to break it up a little. Here is a closeup of the embellishment….

I took a tip from my very helpful upline, Jayne, and inked up the circular stamp with Kiwi Kiss and then used a cotton bud to wipe the ink of some areas before re-inking those areas with my Rose Red Marker. Thanks Jayne!

Thanks for visiting! 🙂 K
