Caardvarks and Friends with FLAIR

It's the 20th, so it's time for a new challenge at Caardvarks and since it's Friday also, it's Friends with Flair at Unity, so I decided to create something with my newest {ippity} stamps for the occasion.

Our challenge at Caardvarks was to color a stamped image, so this is what I came up with. It started as a card, but somehow it ended up framed and will be used as a decoration for the holidays, so it's all good. I am happy the way it turned out.

Items used to make this framed project:

Cardstock: Bazzill
Patterned paper: K&Co
Stamps: {ippity}
Ink: Ranger Distress inks (yes, that is how I color my images in, I just pick up the paint with a watercolor brush, so easy, plus it's what I have, sure would love Copic markers, but it's just not in the budget...hehehe)
Chipboard frame: Tattered Angels ( I inked up the frame with Ranger distress ink, than I sprayed it with irridescent gold Glimmermist, again...trying to save money, plus colors can be customized that way)
Ribbon: Fabric Barn and the star is May Arts ribbon part
Punch: Fiskars border punch
Main shape was cut with Silhouette
Frame


Sponsor: My Scrapbook Nook

Challenge: Color a stamped image

Prize: 4 copic markers from My Scrapbook Nook

Reader discount: 20% off during the challenge period, code: NWS20

Hope you participate in our challenge at Caardvarks. Check out the other designers' cards...oh my goodness, you are in for some some treat with their eye candy!!!

Hope you have a lovely day!
Hugs,
Eva
