I've been stamping since President's Day of 2000. That marks the day that I went to my very first Stampin'Up demonstration at my friend's house. She would always send me hand-stamped cards and I wanted to see how she did it as whenever I dabbled in stamping, my results were well . . . not so good. Paper - Ink - Stamps . . . not all are created equal and when I learned about Stampin'Up's paper, ink and stamps - I never looked back! Eventually, after years of loving my hobby, I became a SU demonstrator myself and I absolutely LOVE it!
When I first started stamping, I didn't use designer paper very much because back in 2000, there really wasn't a lot to choose from. But, I did use background stamping a lot to decorate my cards and that was what the Limited Supply Challenge was for us today. We are to stamp a card the old-fashioned way with no designer paper.
I picked Flannel Background to stamp tone on tone over the Ruby Red strip. That flannel doesn't show up very well in the photo . . . looks great though IRL! Then, I took the paisley stamp out of the Wanted set and stamped this tone on tone over the Bordering Blue card base. I kept the stamping nice and tight. I've always used ribbon and fiber on my cards so that was my next step. Then I did a bit of movement stamping to give my horse some action.
Thanks for stopping by my blog. I hope you are having a nice day. If you are in MN . . . stay warm this weekend and don't go out and about without your emergency kit and your sleeping bag!
