DRS Designs has some new fun stamps so I played with them this week (they are available in the store in a few days).
My first card is made with the new sailboat, island scene, and ruler stamps. I also used the Big Mouth Bass, You are my Sunshine, and Wood grain background images. I was going for a Tim Holtz look on this one so I sponged and sprayed and stenciled the card and fish. I entered this one in the SCS Inspiration Challenge (the Tim Holtz inspiration from two weeks ago) and this week's color challenge. I love all these images (new and old)! After did the card, I realized I had stamped the woodgrain so lightly that it looked like rain so I will be doing this again with a rain sentiment. Fun!!!
Today starts the new weekly challenge at DRS Designs and the theme is Creative Piercing. I used the new Congrats on your Pet sentiment (not sure what it will be called in the store) and the fun Doggie Dilemma Dog with Fence image with is already available. The fence didn't go all the way to the edges of my paper so I finished them out with a Micron Pen. Then I drew some weeds and creatively pierced around them so I could draw in some zig zags. I sponged in a little path and pierced the edges of it too. Then I did some piercings in two of the corners. I was trying to sponge this whole thing but couldn't do the fence or dog so I water colored them and put in some white highlights with a gel pen. I am still in my aversion to coloring mood - hope it passes soon!
Hope you will join in the DRS Designs Creative Piercing Challenge - we would love to see your ideas.
