The February theme for the Craft Stamper Magazine "Take It, Make It" challenge is TEXT ME! One can submit up to three pieces of art for each monthly challenge, so this will be the first of three posts from me today.
I cut a piece of beige cardstock slightly smaller than my cream card base and ran it through my Sizzix Big Kick using a Cuttlebug embossing folder called "Script." Next, I used a Tim Holtz sanding block to remove some of the color from the raised script. I adhered this piece to my card blank.
My flower was cut from a scrap of patterned paper from the DCWV "Mariposa" stack. I added a bit of interest to the blossom by using a brown watercolor pencil, then blending it with a water brush. The stem of the flower was adhered directly to the card, but the blossom was adhered using a pop dot to add a bit of dimension. My sentiment is from a set of cling stamps by Tim Holtz. To keep the brown-ish theme going, I used Walnut Stain ink. I used that to edge the sentiment, as well.
Thanks for coming by today to check out my cards. I hope you will take a moment to leave a comment. I hope, too, that you might find some time to create your own artwork to submit to the Craft Stamper Magazine "Take It, Make It" challenge this month. Details can be found here.
