Oh boy....it feels SO GOOD to be stamping again!!! I know that I've been MIA for the last few weeks....I went to Florida to visit with my Mom and then onto CHA, which was such fun! I had never been before, and I hear that this last show in Orlando was quieter and smaller than the typical show, but I just LOVED it!! There were many things outside of the SU world that were shown and I learned so many new things!!! I saw Carol Duval, Tim Holtz, and even Suze Wienburg. They were there for the vendor event....this is where I learned tons, but wasn't able to buy anything. (That was almost painful!) Then the last 2 days there was another CHA sponsored event that was open to the public. Different vendors, of course, too many people, kind of manic......but then I could buy some of my favorite things....which I did! Anyway, I'll be sure to share more in the days to come......but for now, it's just good to be home and stamping again.
So that brings me to this week's Challenge, which was a color challenge. You know, I think these are my favorite of all the different types of challenges. This week it was Soft Suede, Crushed Curry, Old Olive, and a neutral....I chose Whisper White. AND I used Branch Out....this set is currently on the Dormant List, but still available for purchase. It's also one I earned from my Sale-a-Bration sales this past Spring. It's the first chance I had to work with it and I'm loving this set!
As you can see, it's a fairly straight-forward layout, with faux stitching on the Crushed Curry background, the Soft Suede background was textured with a Texturz plate, and the greeting was popped up on Dimensionals. As for the grass....that was sponged over a torn piece of scrap paper. Fun, isn't it?
