Team Challenge

UPDATE: This card got selected for the Stamper's Showcase! Thank you so much!

At our Stampin Up Team Meetings - we have challenges for our monthly swaps. For the August Meeting, the challenge was to use the sketch for the current Stamping 411 Challenge.

Everyone puts their cards on a table and we vote on the favorite card for the swap. I don't know if I've ever even gotten a vote... but this time... my card won! I was shocked and excited and so thankful that others liked it enough to vote for it! Thanks guys!

Ok, so... without making you wait any longer..... Here's my card:

I started with Bermuda Bay, Dusty Durango and Basic Black card stock. After adding texture and tearing the strips, I inked the Dusty Durango with the same ink color and that's ok, but I wanted even more umph on the textured Bermuda Bay piece. Notice how the paper seems to change color as it nears the edge? That's the effect of the Certainly Celery I used to ink the edges.

The star is from the Fun and Fast Notes stamp set. It was one of the sets I selected with my demo kit. What? Oh yes, you can customize your kit. Isn't that cool? Anyway... It's stamped onto Whisper White in Dusty Durango and then cut out and inked. The colored stars are stamped in black and colored in with markers. Finally, the star in front has Crystal Effect over the yellow and white. It's got texture and shine and really enhances the colors.

Last but not least, I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to position the phrase from the Wings of Friendship stamp set... oh yeah then a little piercing.
