ArtyGlitz and Sunday Stamper Challenge


This is one of those cards that was not planned at all but just came together, and without blowing my own trumpet, I am really chuffed with the result. Saturday night I was scribbling prisma pencils on a scrap of paper,thought it looks quite effective to blended sansodor with them to create a background and ripped one of the edges. I then used my collage stamp and coloured with H20's, something I haven't used in a very long time. I ripped some copper background paper and matted stamped image. The backing paper is from Crafty Individual. I then added an image from the Tuscan Rose CD and edged all around the papers with a dark pigment pad. To finish, I cut up a few squares of friendly plastic and heated and used various objects to create impressions in it. Added these around the card and its ready for this weeks challenges at Artyglitz which was to create your own background and Sunday Stamper which is words, there are words on the backing paper and the stamp.
