Time for stamping fun!

I've been bitten by the stamping bug! Not that I wasn't stamping before, but it seems that these days I am a stamping maniac! One of my favourite stamping blogs and inspiring stampers, Beate, has a weekly sketch challenge. I don't always get to them, but they are GREAT for inspiration.

This weekend's looked like SO much fun, I had to try it out right away! So, go to Beate's blog, check out the sketch and then look at this! What do you think?

Recipe: I used an 8 1/2 X 5 1/2 piece of So Saffron and inked the edges in More Mustard. The image from the Happy Harmony set was stamped using Tombo markers and the water spritzing technique. It was stamped on Very Vanilla with the edges being inked, again, in More Mustard. The top edge was punched using the spiral punch from Stampin' Up. The image was then mounted on a piece of More Mustard with inked edges and the sentiment (also from Happy Harmony) was also stamped in More Mustard. The stamped images on the left of the card are from Autumn Leaves and the $1.50 stamps at Michael's. Ribbon is from my stash.

Thanks for peeking! Let me know you stopped by!
