My challenge card is really late this week because sometimes I need to remind myself that "less is more." My friend (Julie, HRR to most of you out there in stamping land) and I agree that the just one more thing syndrome is sometimes very compelling. You know, "this card looks good but it needs one more thing." Well I have been struggling to get this card just right all day until I heard Julie's voice saying, "don't do it, don't add one more thing!!!" So I didn't. This card is simple and monochromatic but I think I like it. You might think that the challenge this week is to make a monochromatic card but you would be wrong. The challenge is to ink up that stamp that has been hanging around your craft area. The stamp that hasn't seen ink since you brought it home. Use that stamp!!! I brought home a few new stamps on the shopping trip with my chicka Jane, you know the shopping trip back in August that gave birth to our chicka challenge, and haven't used them. It is such a shame to leave them in that box or on that shelf. Time to get that unused stamp out and give it a whirl. Let's see what happens when you put some ink on it and create. I got out a new stamp from A Muse's fall release. I just love every stamp they make and the new shimmer papers, well they are to die for. The patterned paper in my card is one of them. So sparkly and shimmery they are perfect! Check them out at your local stamp store or at amuseartstamps.com. You won't be sorry. Don't forget to leave a post here or there and show us your stuff. I also want to send big thank you to Victoria who took the challenge last week and got out that special paper.
