Release week challenge!

Happy release week everyone! Sorry for the late challenge post, we have satellite internet that has been acting up all week and driving me crazy grrr......

This week we are channeling our fellow Trendsetter Julie Lacey with a challenge that requires using a line art stamp without coloring it in. Julie does such a beautiful job at this and I thought that it would be a great challenge for all of you color hounds out there ;)

Check out the TSG Blog today to find out all the details about this challenge and how you can win a TSG gift certificate simply by playing along!

The stamp set I used for this card is a sneak peek of a new stamp set illustrated by a new artist to join the TSG family! I am so excited that Melyssa Connolly from Whimsie Doodles has joined us and I know that you are just going to love the style that she brings to the current stamp line :D

This stamp set is called Under The Weather and you can see more of this awesome set tomorrow for the Blog Hop Challenge that starts on the TSG Blog! For my card I created a card base out of kraft cardstock, stamped the umbrella boarder stamp and sponged the edges. I used Nestabilities to cut out the image panel, sponged with Crumb Cake ink, stamped the image and sentiment in Early Espresso ink, adhered to card base, trimmed extra cardstock that was hanging over the sides and stitched with a sewing machine across the top and bottom. To finish of this card, I added diamond glaze to the bird to give it some extra depth.
Make sure you come back tomorrow for the start
of our Blog Hop Challenges!
