I've got another card for Stamp-a-Faire over at Papertrey Ink. This one is for the Limited Ingredients challenge. Emily decided not to do it since she thought it was "boring", but I found it interesting to create my own design using a set list of supplies.
I started my cutting my 1-inch strip of Soft Stone cardstock, as per the instructions. After looking at my colors for inspiration, I punched a circle from each color of cardstock and started playing with placement. I liked how the strip looked on top of the circles.
The white card base was too blank, so I stamped an open polka dot background using Smokey Shadow ink. Then I took a tiny dot included in the Polka Dot Basics set and randomly used the three colors of ink inside the circles. Let me tell you, random isn't easy for this gal! :)
I needed to add my sentiment somehow (and cover a mistake - lol), so I punched three more color circles, cutting them into three wedges and piecing them to create a narrow border behind another white circle. Then I stamped my sentiment in Smokey Shadow ink on top.
Watching a challenge video from the glitter challenge gave me the idea to add glitter lines to my Soft Stone strip. I used two widths of Scor-Tape, making it quick and easy. It adds lots of sparkle. For a finishing touch, I added glitter to the border around the sentiment as well.
