And sorted out a design for The Stampman Challenge which this time is based on CIRCLES as the theme.
I was hopping around in blogland recently and came across the Hero Arts Blog Challenge which also involves circles, and as The Stampman has a fabulous range of Hero Art Stamps, that was the decision made! I could create a design from the Hero Arts sketch, enter it into their challenge AND advertise The Stampmans stock too.
Arn't I a smarty pants?????
It's a very simple card with circles cut using the woodware punches with a small flower from the Hero Arts Blossom Art Set. The flowers were stamped onto patterned paper with versafine and embossed with clear embossing powder then inked with Adirondak inks to bring out the design. This is a great way to use the negative flower stamps from the range, particularly some of the flower scene stamps.
I got so carried away with the stamp set that before I knew it I had made another card by creating a masterboard and stamping a large flower from the set
'Twas fun getting stuck in again and being absorbed for so long (this was finished at about 3am) Note to self - I don't HAVE to use all the scraps straight away. That makes for a very long night!
Why don't you head over to The Stampman Shop and have a gander at the smashin stamps they have on offer there, you could enter both challenges, and there are great prizes to be had too.
Don't stay up too late though - not good for the concentration!
