challenges. Do I hear shouting and clapping? This weeks's challenge is Design Details from p. 67. I started with the cowboy image -- one of the new sets of stamps. I stamped it on tag stock and tore around the edges. I used walnut stain distress inks around the torn edges and colored the image with Copics. The letters were cut using my new (to me) Vintage alphabet die. The background paper is from last month's Club Scrap kit. The funny thing is that I thought I hated the paper when I first saw it. Now I love it. It makes such an interesting background and the colors are so vintage. I stamped over the paper with several of Tim's stamps for even more visual texture. Along the left edge I used Tim's brad detail idea. Hmmm, I may need to refill my stock of brads. I used the wire sewing idea on the letters. As I've stated many times before, sewing is not my cup of tea. Sewing with wire is even harder. Well, it's a good thing that the idea is distress. I'm so glad I participated in this series of challenges. I've stepped outside my box several times. Linda Ledbetter, our challenge mom, hints of new challenges to come. Bring them on...I can't wait.
