I've been playing along with some Dare to Get Dirty challenges on Splitcoaststampers. I combined a couple challenges, monochromatic and a sketch, to create this card.
The monochromatic challenge, with a splash of color, reminded me of this stamp set, Reason to Smile, which is only available in July. That's right, today is the last day!
This stamp set uses two-step stamping... one of my favorite techniques! A two-step stamping set has coordinating solid and line stamp images, and it is perfect for beginners, because it is a super easy way to color an image. I inked up my solid stamp with Basic Gray and Summer Starfruit markers, stamped off once, then stamped the card stock. I then stamped the outline in Basic Gray ink, using the Stamp-a-ma-jig (gettin' jiggy with it!... come on, those who took "I am Creative" at Convention... you know what I'm talking about!).
Stamps: Reason to Smile, Petite Pairs; Paper: Summer Starfruit, Basic Gray, Very Vanilla, Twitterpated DSP; Ink: Basic Gray, Basic Gray marker, Summer Starfruit marker; Accessories: Basic Gray ribbon, Circle punches, SAMJ, Argyle EF, Perfect Polka Dots EF, Big Shot, Dimensionals.
So run, don't walk, to get yours now! This stamp set is available in wood- or clear-mount for only $5, after a $50 purchase. Click here to order.
