Technique Lover's Challenge on Splitcoast


Hello everyone....hope your weekend was wonderful...it went by way too fast!!! Tonight is my turn to host the TLC challenge on Splitcoast and my challenge to you is to use your smallest stamps to create a border for your image. You can also create a wreath, as long as it is a border around a image or sentiment. How easy is that!!!!!
I used the tiny flower and leaf stamps from the Hero Arts Sending Happiness set...the flowers were stamped with Calypso Coral, Wisteria Wonder, Pool Party and the leaves were stamped with Pear Pizzazz. The bird was made with a Stampin Up! die and Martha Stewart Punches were used for the nest. The Papertrey Ink sentiment and bow finish it off.
Recipe:
Stamps: Hero Arts and Papertrey Ink
Paper: Hawaiian Shores, Calypso Coral, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Kiwi Kiss, Always Artichoke
Ink: Wisteria Wonder, Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz, Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: PTI Ribbon, Martha Stewart Punches, Stampin Up! Bird Die, Black Pearl

Thanks for stopping by....be sure to check out my challenge...I would love to see what you make!!!

Oh my goodness, Joan, I have a few days away from blogging and there are so many fab uploads on your blog to catch up with...I'll be here all night, he hee.

Love your challenge to use the stamps to make a border, I havent done that in a few years. You got a perfect colour match between the bird and the ribbon, exactly the same shade. Off for a browse at your other cards now. CoB
