It's another weekly card challenge by Susan Raihala on her blog, Simplicity. We were to make a one-layer square card using any outline image stamp and keeping embellishments to a minimum. Here's the card I submitted:
Oy, as you can see, my card is rectangular. I got so wrapped up in making sure I was using outline stamps that I forgot to make a square card...big oops! Oh well!
First, I stamped the tree branch from the Landing Pad by Kim Hughes directly on the white shimmery cardstock and colored in the leaves with Copic markers. Then, I stamped the branch again on a piece of Birch Wood pattern cardstock from A Muse and just cut the branch part of the image out. The woodgrain was a contrasting white but I used a couple of brown colored Copics to darken it.
Isn't the Tweet Bird from Memory Box so adorable? I stamped the bird onto a piece of Gossamer pattern paper also by Memory Box and cut it out sans the legs.
I finished off the card by stamping the "Hello" sentiment by A Muse with Adirondack Espresso ink. I love how elegant that font makes the card!
Have a great day and be sure to check out all the other creations for this challenge on the Simplicity blog!
