I've Got Challenge Fever!
Another day, another challenge. I don't know whats gotten into me! This particular challenge comes from the wonderful GinaK. The only requirements were to use her sketch and her stamps. I choose to use the sometimes neglected set 'Way To Go'.
I had a lot of fun with my Twinkling H20s for this card. First, I painted two different shades of blue on my Polka Dot Backgrounder from CHF. I had to scrub a little hard to get all the TH20 off, so don't get concerned if the same thing happens, it will come off!
Next I worked on my toilet. I know the black isn't as 'strong' as usual but that is because I stamped on 140 lb watercolor paper which has a texture. I haven't found a good remedy for this, besides pressing really, really, really hard. I did some simple blue shading with my H20s, then punched it out with my scalloped oval giga punch (haven't heard about that in awhile, huh?). Quick and easy from there, with just a stamping of the ladies room sign on the right corner. Some more shading, a sequin and then off the card went, into Twinkling H20 heaven!!
Also, I have a Twinkling H20 Video under the video tutorials section of my blog!!
I am a full-time student! I have been scrapbooking since I was 12 years old but have only recently become a stamper. I am always looking for design teams, so if my work interests you please contact me.
