Today I decided to play along with my 2 favorite blogs....Simon Says Stamp and A Blog Named Hero. I am not very good at combining challenges. I usually never combine them but this week it was just so easy to do that I thought "why not?"
The girls over at A Blog Named Hero have this challenge going on:
The challenge? Use letter stamps for something other than a title. ;)
And Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday challenge is to "Create your own background"
Here is my card:
I used the journal alphabet letters from Hero Arts. I arranged them on an acrylic block going every which way. I then inked them up in Colorbox Frost White ink (just for visibility purposes) and heat embossed them with Ranger's Silver Super Fine Detail Embossing powder. I turned the stamp a few times until it covered the paper. I found embossing right away works best too. The white pigment ink dries pretty fast and didn't allow me to emboss it all at once.
Here is a closer look:
To finish is off I wrapped some twine around the bottom of the feathers.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have an awesome weekend.
