The current challenge at Muse Card Challenge is this great card created by Leigh Penner
OK - I admit it. I wasn't going to "play" this week because I had no idea what to do! Good job, Leigh - this was a great exercise to "stretch" and be creative because I have no "food" stamps, certainly no hamburger stamp! I kept coming back to Leigh's card because I didn't really want to give in. So I looked at some of the elements - the woodgrain background, the basic sketch and frame, the colours - red, yellow, cream, kraft, sentiment including the word "happy".
Here's what I came up with
I started with cream cardstock and Stampin Up's Woodgrain stamp and Stampin Up's Sahara Sand ink. I cut out the frame from kraft cardstock and cut out the centre panel with MFT Die-namics Zig Zag Stitched Rectangles. The sentiment is from Simon Says Clear Stamp Happy stamp set. I added distress inks (mustard seed, barn door, pumice stone) to the centre panel with ink blending tools.
