Happy November :)
Today's card is for my One Plus Twelve card challenge ~
which I started last year and it's really quite fun!
The idea: Take one stamp - and ONLY one stamp -
and try to use it all year long (twelve months) to stretch the use of your supplies.
This year, my Word of the Year is: BLOOM
so I've been using Beautiful Bloom by My Favorite Things.
My card is a little one the crazy side -
It came together quite the opposite of how I was hoping!
But, it's kinda groovy!
I started with a black and white base and stamped the flower
on a yupo'd background piece made with ranger inks and alcohol.
This took several tries - NONE of the black inks I tried would really stamp boldly.
Even with the MISTI, I stamped and stamped!
Finally, this result was achieved with Ranger's Archival black.
I cut it out with the matching die and then - GULP - cut it in half!
So the card could have a little drama :)
Since sentiments are allowed, I used a die cut for the bold greeting
and a sentiment from another stamp set
(which has been fun - since the stamp I chose didn't have one.)
My two friends Barb and Jeanette are joining me in this challenge
this year and you can see their cards on their blogs.
I have TWO cards to catch up on ~ I think?!
I'm behind on life .... so naturally cards have taken a bit of a hiatus!
Thanks for stopping by!
Big hugs, bigger blessings :)
