Sunday, July 10

Started the 30 Day Color Challenge but...

life got in the way!
I really wanted to try and do the challenge but I don't have time "every" day to color at this time in my life.

Instead I am devoting all day today, Sunday, to  making cards for as many challenges as I can until I have to make dinner!


My first challenge of the day is an easy one.


This is a "One Layer" challenge with the theme "time".
The card was made by inking up the thyme herb stamp, from the Stampin Up set "Herb Expressions", with black Staz-On.
Once it is stamped and colored with permanent markers I placed it in my Cuttlebug. 
Sandwich for the Cuttlebug was (bottom to top):
A plate
rubber matte
card (not folded) with image facing up
die with cutting blade down
 C plate
thin cardboard shims 

This made the embossed image around the stamped image.

On to my next challenge.

Very clever! The thyme is beautifully coloured and looks fantastic with the embossed border round it. Super take on the challenge - well done!

Wonderful! Such a clever take on the theme. Your crisp embossing is a great focal point for the sweet thyme image. Thank you so much for sharing this with us at Less is More.
