And, if you've followed my blog for a while, you know that Sharon and I have met in person on a few occasions...most recently at the end of July for a Michigan stamping event, which was so much fun! Sharon brought a lot of her goodies from her Stamp Simply store for us to purchase, and I bought some of her May Arts silk ribbon (this stuff is so exquisite!!!), the Bow Easy, and my first Just Rite stamps. She also hosted a small luncheon for a couple of us who had traveled a long way to the event----scrumpdillyicious!!!! Sharon is a wonderful cook and hostess, in addition to being one of the most talented stampers I've ever met.
But I digress and should get back to the task at hand. Sharon's Stamp Simply #103 challenge this week is to stamp your sentiment over your image!
I love the simple elegance of this stamp in Stampin' Up's God's Beauty set. I stamped it in Tuxedo Memento Black ink and watercolored it with SU reinkers. After that dried, I added a few touches to the leaves with my So Saffron marker and a little white gel highlighting. After I stamped the sentiment, I stamped the Floral background in River Rock, which I find to be a wonderful complement to Old Olive. I punched two opposing corners on the black matting with my square steps punch and the other two opposing corners, I added black brads. Last I added the scoring to the Old Olive base panel with my ScorPal.
Please be sure to stop by and see the spectacular creations of Sharon's super talented design team members for this challenge. I'm sure they'd love your visit and your comments!
And, of course, the leader of the pack, Miss Sharon herself!
Thanks for stopping by today!
