Your Next Stamp Challenge

Thursday, September 3, 2015

Hello my lovely friends!
I am making a quick stop to share a card I just made for the Your Next Stamp Challenge that is closing tonight! 


They always have sketch and color challenges, I am playing the color challenge.

I went mixed media wanna-be again! 
I actually forgot I had this cute candle stamp set from YNS!
I water colored the flame with Tangerine Tango and Daffodil Delight, then the candles with Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, and Pear Pizzazz. 

The sentiment is from the same stamp set, I love that font!
I heat embossed it on vellum, die cut it with this banner, then just stapled it down.

I splattered some Tangerine Tango with my paint brush. 
I then added some gold gumballs, I love how sparkly they are!

Today is such a hot day out! 
My boss cat, Ramsess, came to investigate what I was doing in his sunbathing spot! Do you think he likes my card!? I certainly am happy with how it turned out
