Ink It Up Challenge

A Muse Monthly Challenge #7

Did you know there's a monthly challenge over on the A Muse Lounge? These challenges are always super fun and easy. And anyone who plays along and posts their creation has a chance to win a wonderful prize from A Muse! How cool is that!!!

This month's challenge -- Ink It Up. Create something using any of your A Muse stamps that you have never used before. How easy is that!

I went to a baby shower yesterday...so I decided to make a card using this Jammies stamp that I've had for a looooooong time. How sad is that!
This adorable stamp is no longer available.

I absolutely LOVE this new Gingham cardstock from A Muse. It's petite pattern is perfect for stamping...and works super fantastic for paper piecing! I used B00 Copic marker to add a little shading to the jammies. Just a little touch here and there so it didn't look so flat. After cutting it out I added blue Fun Flock on the collar and edge of the sleeves. (Click the picture and you can see the shading and flocking much better.) I also sponged blue chalk ink around the edges of the card base.

You have until the 31st of this month at 8pm Pacific time get in on the prize for this challenge. Have fun!
