Hello everyone, it's Saturday again meaning a new theme starts today at Allsorts challenge and this week Dena is hosting. She chose the optional theme of "Rain" so you may share anything related to rain and of course there is the "Anything Goes" option if a rain theme isn't your thing. It's supposed to be snowing here today. I'm ready for some warmer spring weather!! Looks like groundhog Phil was right with his prediction this year :)
Prizes this month come from Oakwood, Highlight Crafts, AALL and Create and Craft Stash. As a reminder it's still a weekly challenge with weekly winners but winners will be announced just once a month now.
This adorable image is an old wood mounted stamp from Penny Black (Rainin' Daisies) but new in my collection and I thought it was a great choice with the rain theme in mind. I stamped on Bristol Vellum paper then colored with Distress inks. I used my MFT cloud stencil (again) on the background using Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink and then inked the bottom portion with Twisted Lime. Sentiment is from Stampers Anonymous set Tiny Text . I found some papers in my scrap box that coordinate with the coloring and paper pierced along the image panel. Natural jute twine was added to complete the card.
I came across a new to me challenge called "Woodblock Wednesday" and this is my first time entering. I would also like to share with Simon Says Stamp challenge where the theme is Spring or Easter, Paper Shelter the colors of spring, at Sisterhood of Crafters it's rainbows or rainbow colors ( I used red, purple, orange, green and blue) and also sharing at Crazy is our fame - STENCILS are our game (as mentioned I used a cloud stencil), Unicorn Challenge wants to see dots or stripes.
