Our challenge this week is also our prize challenge being it is the 3rd Saturday of the month. This month our prize is sponsored by Alota Rubber Stamps. Again, get all the details at the C4C blog.
And here's my card. I went *really* CAS with this card and I love it. No buttons, no ribbon--what's up with that!? I have to say I was totally inspired by this card Kim Hughes did when this set was released--I thought it was so creative and striking. I've tried to make the design my own, using the sketch. It may not look *a lot* like the sketch, but I can assure you that the sketch inspired this card.
I stamped the jar from PTI's Friendship Jar and brush images from Friendship Jar Fillers on Rustic White card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored just the paint on the brushes with Copic markers. Then, I covered the colored areas with Crystal Effects and let that dry. Next I created a mask for the jar and stamped the stripes, using the Distressed Stripes set, to match my brush tips. Then I stamped the sentiment, from MFT's Clearly Sentimental About You. Finally I added a Kraft base card and it was done.
Sooooo, NOW, be sure to check out the samples by the rest of my crazy girls...er, I mean the Crazy 4 Challenges team ;-)
