Here is this month’s sketch by Keren Howell….
I thought this sketch was a lovely and simple design and as I was already playing with the Mixed Borders stamp set, I decided to quickly stamp up a card for today’s challenge.
Lets hack up the stamps!
There comes a time when you’ve been stamping a while and come across a stamp that you wish suited your needs better. I liked all the images in the Mixed Borders set, however, they were set out in strips. I wanted to use the images as separate pieces to make a background. So there was only one thing for it….time to SNIP it into individual pieces!!!!
Worry not my friends! The good thing about photopolymer (even rubber too) is that if you don’t do any extra trimming, the pieces will fit back together seamlessly. As long as you don’t snip through an image section! Make your strategic cuts and then leave be. Now I have the best of both worlds!
I love Navy!
I’m currently in a Navy and White love affair, so my natural colour choice for today was going to be this. The sentiments in the Mixed Borders stamp set are a perfect fit for the 1 – 3/4″ punch.
Thank you for joining us today – I hope you are enjoying all the lovely projects. Next up we have Sally and her take on the sketch.
