Anyway, I was really excited about the My Favorite Things idol challenge this week. I really have fallen in love with masking and one sheet cards, so I had a great time. My strech was finding a MFT stamp to use as the background. I love polka dots and there was a great stamp in the Let's go for a walk stamp set. I also realized that Stamp TV color challenge was up and it was to use four or more colors. How perfect for my little project.
Isn't this so much fun!!! I really went out of my norm with the bold brights, but I loved how it turned out. I was going for Urban sheek here, so we had road and sidewalk. Normally I would have put some grass in there, but there is no way that hip lady would be walking on grass with those shoes LOL! I had no idea people would want to see all of the details, I did have my first draft laying around, so I took some shots for some more explaining.
This was the first step. I ran a 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 piece of paper and a transparency through the big shot with the top notz die. I then cut the clear sheet at the preferated edge all around. I then had my outer mask, the top notz white die and the clear sheet. The next step is to lay your white top notz cut die down on your real 8 1/2 X 5 1/5 half sheet of white. I took the dots and stamped what would be the outer edges of the card.
It's a good life!
