I used to LOVE doing online card challenges, absolutely loved being, well, challenged to create out of my comfort zone. Color challenges, sketch challenges – you name it, I did it! Well it’s been years since I’ve done one (at least 7 years!) and I decided it was time to carve out some time and get challenged! This week I decided to join the Tic Tac Toe challenge at Shopping Our Stash. (SOS380)
Choose a line, horizontal, perpendicular or diagonal and use all the elements in your card. I chose straight down the middle – stamps (of course), stash more than 5 years old and Happy Birthday. Here’s my card:
For the stamps, I used a lovely set from Concord and 9th called “Just Because” and a sentiment from Cats Life Press.
As to the “stash older than 5 years” part, I used a piece of patterned paper from Rouge De’ Garance from 2006. I stamped the flowers and background block with some original distress inks that I have had for at least a dozen years – antique linen, tattered rose and worn lipstick. (although they’ve been re-inked many, many times since then…)
The birthday wishes sentiment, leaves and branches were stamped with Archival ink.
Thanks for stopping by!
