Hello Everyone! I hope everyone is safe and sound with all this horrible weather we have been having. Living in PA I never thought I would be hit by a tornado but go figure we did. We had minor damage compared to certain parts of the country so I am not even going to complain but it was a scary thing to live thru especially when you are home with young twins. The hail hitting the house was just simply crazy!!
Due to the tornado we lost power for a day which put me back in my crafting capabilities. I simply adore the new Hillybilly Holler stamp collection from Peachy Keen Stamps. They just make me chuckle!! So I decided to use SY-902 Hillbilly Holler Set 3 for a THANKS A BUNCH card. The challenge this week was to follow a sketch with a twist of Sponging on your card. So I stamped and colored my image then cut him out as close as possible to the lines. I then sponged him along the sides as well as the card base with Tim Holtz's Vintage Photo. After that I glued him down on white cardstock and trimmed him again so he can pop a bit with the trim. I tried all different kinds of DP for the background but couldn't find any that my little guy didn't get lost in. So I pulled out my Punched Tin background stamp from Market Street Stamps and stamped it on kraft cardstock. I added clear stickles to the flowers and to the center of each circle on the design of the background stamp. I hope you stop on by Peachy Keen Stamps challenge blog. I would love to see what you create with this sketch and the twist of sponging.
