Featured Stamper Challenge
I made this card this morning for this week's SCS Featured Stamper challenge. I loved looking through Renee's (aka prchvs) gallery. She has an awesome style. The way the challenge works is that you pick a card to CASE, but you make at least two changes from the original.
I copied this card of Renee's. I kept her layout, but changed the stamps and the colors. I also added and removed layers and changed the bottom word window punch to a pair of flowers. The layered flower has dimensionals between each layer, and each petal is outlined with a Stardust glitter pen. Scalloped rectangle is done with nestabilities.
Bear with me this week, as I may be a little sporadic with my posts. Last week, I finalized an arrangement to begin selling cards in a local boutique-y type consignment shop. I'm really excited to see how it will go. It could be the perfect opportunity for me because the store is open only one weekend a month. I get a chance to test the market without getting in over my head. My starting inventory will be a little different than I expected, so I have a lot of stamping to do between now and next Tuesday!
