The idea behind a challenge is just that, to make it challenging! I found these both difficult, but that is the point. :)
The first card is a one layer creation. I hope adding the strip of twill isn't cheating, it is one layer of paper, although I wanted to paper piece the teapot so badly!
I was smiling the entire time I was creating as I hadn't stamped in over a week, such a great reminder of the pleasure we get from our hobbies.
I enjoyed mixing stamp sets and I pulled out my Spots & Dots for the first time, and I used the Life stamp set too. I left it out because I want to use it again after I put up this post.
For the second card, we were supposed to challenge ourselves to pull out a stamp set that was collecting dust. That would be my holiday tag set from 2008. I never have used it, although I like it very much, I just never feel inspired by it. I mixed four colors for it including hibiscus, Spring Moss, Aqua and Spring Rain, oh, White craft too for the polka dots. Thanks for looking.
