Artsy Stamper Challenge Badge
For my card, I used a stamp and die bundle that I've had for two years and never used. When I read the challenge description, I knew these were the stamps for my card. I was inspired by an artist and paper crafter named Jan Tink and shamelessly CASE'd her card. I do not have a link to her card.
I stamped and colored the image then added the background and rain effects. The image was cut using a circle die. The clouds were created with a stencil. Once the clouds were completed, I die cut the panel with zigzag stitches. The sentiment was stamped and trimmed to size. Onto a white card base, the layers were added, mostly using foam tape. I added the banners toward the right edge to bring color to that side of the card. The inside was decorated with a sun and two ducklings, leaving sufficient space for a personal message.
Be sure to join us at Double Trouble #55 for this fun challenge and don't forget to link up with Artsy Stamper's Challenge #14 and visit the Artsy Stamper Shop.
