to both of you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is my card for Jeanne's blogger challenge today RBC12. It's also Treasure Hunt Tuesday at Rubbernecker Stamp co. Jeanne & Linda are offering Rubbernecker Blog Candy today.
Now for my challenge card. (be sure to scroll all the way down for a preview card using images that were designed by one of our own DT members that will be announced/available June 4!
I recently worked the Rubbernecker booth at a stamp show. While digging through the Demo Tubs, I came across a stamp that I couldn't make out the image beause of the style. So I stamped it on my scrap paper and actually gasped in surprise. I had never seen this image on the Rubbernecker site and I still can't find it there. I think that Dave dusted off the plate and pressed it for me. The stamp I discovered was actually an ATC size and that one would be fun too. For now, I was thrilled to have this surprise show up in my mail box. I will email him so that it will be added to the site now that I have posted it. So, my card title today is for the accidental discovery or unexpected pleasure I had when I inked up the stamp and put it to paper..............
The long horizontal strip was stamped in Versamark using 144-04 Baroque Striplet and embossed in clear ep on Plum CS. Then, I painted a layer of sandstone acrylic paint over the top, waited 1 minute and wiped off the excess with a paper towel spritzed with window cleaner to reveal the embossed image. The mother & child were stamped using Versafine smokey gray ink on sand CS. The stamp wasn't long enough for my panel, so I just turned the layer upside down and re-stamped the bottom portion from the image upside down as well. The pale plum layer was stamped in Tim Holtz Milled Lavender ink using Baroque Background 12-30 SO. The petite words 2000 SO were stamped in TH Dusty Concord. The finished card measures 5" square.
