I was so glad to finally get to actually 'play' in my scraproom today and not 'work'. I've had so many projects I needed to do before I could create for fun. Late Friday night I finished my Workshop On The Go project for my upcoming clubs so that meant Saturday would be play time! Well..... wait, I had several non-scrapping Saturday To Do's first - like go to grocery, go to post office and shopping. (oh wait - that wasn't on my To Do List but when it's 50% off at Altar'd State - gotta go!) When I finally sat down to create I seemed to have a creative block! NOT FUN!! I don't know why! I had an entire sheet of challenges that I printed out this morning for inspiration. It took me a while to get started, but once I tackled one I felt like my mojo was finally flowing. So now - on to my next challenge!
The challenge at Just Us Girls was a different challenge for me - Use line art image technique. This technique takes a stamp that you would normally fill in with color but here you just stamp and leave it plain! Wow... I wasn't sure I could do this.... I have all the new markers that are just begging to be used. So, I thought this was an interesting technique and I couldn't wait to see what I could do with it. I think it turned out quite nice! I made a fall card....
Once again I pulled my Flirty (X7160B) paper pack. (Oh how I love this paper!). I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. My stamp is Close To My Heart's Fall Harvest (C1504). For the leaves I inked the stamp in Goldrush and then rolled the edges in Cocoa and New England Ivy. The acorn was stamped in New England Ivy and Cocoa. Final touches - Burlap Ribbon (Z1760) and Sparkles - Brown and Tan Assortment (Z1753).
Here is the sketch I used.... and the Technique Challenge
Thanks for looking!!!
