WWC#166 - Kath's Masculine Anything Goes Challenge
I'm getting back into the swing of things after a two-week break for the Challenge. After attending the Stampin' Up OnStage event, my creative juices have been recharged, and as luck would have it, I was able to use some of the stamp sets I received at OnStage for this week's challenge!
Our host for this week's challenge is Kath.
While tidying up my craft table to make space to work, I came across a pile of backgrounds I had done a while ago while playing with some non-SU inks - Distress Oxides. So, I decided to use one of them. Here is how it turned out:
One of the sets from OnStage is Pick a Pennant. I also used the Distress Oxides to stamp the pennants. This was much easier to do with wonderful, awesome, new stamp positioner tool - the Stamparatus! I did need to re-ink and re-stamp the images a couple of times and the Stamparatus makes this a breeze.
The sentiment and the branch with the cute little frog on it are from another set from OnStage - Animal Outing. I stamped it on Whisper White cardstock and punched it out with the Everyday Label punch. I punched two more using the Everyday Label punch from Basic Black cardstock, cut them apart and layered under the Whisper White to frame it.
For the cardbase, I used a brand new InColour - Blueberry Bushel - and placed a sheet of another new InColour, Pineapple Punch, underneath it for taking the photo. Another benefit of attending OnStage is that we get to order from a limited selection of items before anyone else does.
