The House That Stamps Built; Designer Choice Challenge
Can you believe it’s already the second Wednesday in June? That means it’s time for a Designers Choice Challenge at The House That Stamp Built! Today, Melissa is hosting our challenge and she has chosen the theme, “Fresh & Fruity.” Okay – who’s old enough to remember the commercials by I-Hop “Rooty Tooty Fresh and Fruity Pancakes”. Sorry, I couldn’t resist.
As with our other challenges, we are offering a $25.00 gift certificate to the Repeat Impressions store for our random winner. You have until June 16th to enter and don’t forget, if you use a RI stamp, you get an extra entry!
For my “Fresh and Fruity” inspiration I thought about strawberry ice cream on a beautiful summer day. I stamped Repeat Impressions, “Cool Treats 9008-N” and “Chill Out 9013-D” in Momento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with Copic Markers. I distressed the sentiment with Spun Sugar Distressed Ink while still in the die – I love that look. I then used rectangle stitched dies from Simon Says Stamp and My Favorite things and set the ice cream upon a My Favorite Things oval die.
I took some liberties with my stamped image by cutting out a larger bite from the third ice cream as I wanted it to look like a progression of yummy bites. No stamps were harmed in the process.
I sure hope you come enjoy a “Fresh & Fruity” day with us this week at The House that Stamps Built. Happy Wednesday!
