Not So Limited Supplies......


There was a Limited Supplies Challenge on SCS the other week and I don't often do these. I find it too difficult to limit myself to just this or that. I have a hard time following the rules...hahaha! This challenge was to use only background stamps and NO patterned paper!! Ack!! No patterned paper??? I know....it was hard. You were allowed 2 background stamps, one focal stamp and a sentiment, also 2 colours of cs plus a neutral and minimal embellishments. Well, I think I have one extra colour of cs and my embellishments.....well, I just can't do minimal. It's not in me. Like I said.....rules are not my friends.

Anyway, the background stamp I used is a retired one called Love Swirls and I stamped it on the piece of Close to Cocoa. The main image is stamped on SU watercolour paper which is 140lb and very thick and quite expensive. But it's great for using your SU markers on. I, of course, added Stickles to her wings and used my Aquapainter to make the ground for her to stand on. I added some pink gingham and some retired SU ribbon, then some of my yummalicious Prima flowers and attached them with glitter brads! So sparkly! The sentiment is from Essential Sentiments by My Favorite Things! This is my go-to sentiment set as it has lots of different ones to choose from. They all fit in the Word Window Punch and you can ink up just part of a sentiment if you want to. I stamped this sentiment and punched it out using the Round Tab Punch.

A Little Note About Kimmie's Challenge #8: I have been receiving links and emails with entries for the challenge and I'm so excited that you are joining in! However, some people are entering cards that are not new and have been entered in some of my challenges before. When I enter into a challenge on SCS or on other blogs, it is a requirement that the entry be a NEW creation. So please feel free to enter as many times as you like, but make sure you have made that item specifically for this challenge. The idea behind a challenge is not just to win a prize, but to get you motivated and inspired to stamp. Thanks and I look forward to seeing more of your fabulous creations!!!!

This is beautiful!! Love how you did this on limited supplies. I lack a certain restraint sometimes to do this sort of challenge. That's the moment when I suddenly have to use more than required. Great layout and coloring!!
