I'm back again this afternoon with a card for the Winnie & Walter Share the Love Featuring Essentials by Ellen Day 2: Sentimental Challenge.
I started by marking out a light, penciled grid onto vanilla cardstock, with each block a hare larger than the "Merci" stamp from the Essentials by Ellen 12 Days Companion Greetings Stamp Set. I stamped the sentiment in peach ink in each block, having left two blocks open in the bottom right corner. I then erased the pencil guides and inked the edges. Then I stamped in green ink the solid and outlined leaf images from Winnie & Walter's The Big, the Bold and Extras Stamp Set, fussy cut them out and adhered them to the left side of the unstamped area. I added a few bronze rhinestones for the berries. I finished the card by stamping the "Merci" sentiment in toffee ink in the remaining open area.
I have one more card finished for Day 3, and hope to get the other two cards made. Have you joined along in this fun challenge? I only have one stamp from each of these companies and it has been rather fun to see the different cards I have made with just these two set.
