Yes, I'm late with this week's Shopping Our Stash challenge. Actually, I was out of town this past weekend and did it from memory, and, well, when you are as old as I am, memory fails you. This week's challenge is Punch It Out, and you must have at least two punched elements on your project.
So ANYway, I had a spur-of-the-moment road trip to visit my stampy pal Libby, and we planned to do our collective Creative Chemistry 101 homework together. We got quite messy! Along the way, I used one of my samples to make a card using punches for this week's challenge. This is what came out:
The colored piece was one of the alcohol ink techniques from the class. I stamped over it with two stamps from a Hero Arts set, then layered it onto a piece of black on which I punched two rows using a Fleur de Lis punch (EK Success, I think). As a final touch, I stuck on two pieces of polka-dotted paper tape I picked up on one of our crafty shopping sprees. *ahem*
Now that I'm home, I'll try to get organized and post some more of my homework samples. They were a lot of fun to make, and I may have collected enough Ranger product to make me need to rearrange my craft room. I even played around and created a technique of my own by combining two of our lessons into one. :) So watch for them over the next week or so, or when I get to them.
Thanks for stopping by!
