This is for this weeks CLEARLY INSPIRED CHALLENGE found over at Lori's blog.
This week was a sketch challenge. Why not play along...even if you don't own any Clear Dollar Stamps...use whatever stamps you have. There are always prizes to be won.
Okay...on with the card. I decided to use the Horse Poetry stamp set from CDS this week.
I stamped my image onto watercolour paper and use my inks and aquapainter to colour it in. I ran my Chocolate Chip & Kiwi Kiss inkpads over the co-ordinating colour cardstock to give it a bit of a suede look.
I added three brads and wrapped twine around them.
Card Supplies:
Stamps: Clear Dollar Stamps~ Horse Poetry
Paper: Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip, Water Colour paper, SU Au Choclat DSP
Ink: Black Staz-on, Chocolate Chip, Close To Cocoa, Creamy Carmel, Kiwi Kiss, Pacific Point
Accessories: Aquapainter, Paper Piercer, Brads, Twine, Dimensionals,Sponging, Oval Nesties
Thanks for looking....hope you get a chance to play along with us!
