The House That Stamps Built: Sketch Challenge
It’s the fourth Wednesday of the Month and time for The House That Stamps Built sketch challenge. You have until Tuesday, July 28th to enter for a chance to win a $25.00 gift certificate at Repeat Impressions. Feel free to turn the sketch around as long as the basic elements are included you are good to go.
Here’s the Sketch:
For my card today I took a trip to Africa using the Passport Series at Repeat Impressions Stamps. The image I used is called “Chimp 5306-J” which was stamped using Adirondack Espresso ink. I cut him out using the My Favorite Things Stitched square die and distressed the image with Antique Linen while it was still housed in the die to create that white frame.
The paper is from Prima called, “Cartographer.” I did the same treatment of Antique Linen with the My Favorite Things Stitched circle and then sprayed Lindy’s Stamp Gang Spray in for the background for my “Happy Hello-9717-C” sentiment, which I stamped only a portion of. One of the tricks I use to stamp only a part of a stamp is to use scotch tape to cover what you don’t want, then ink up the stamp and remove the tape. That leaves only the portion you want to stamp inked. I finished off the card with some Club Scrap ribbon.
