Ready.... Steady.... Stamp: Challenge #1


Ready... Steady, Stamp is a new stamping challenge blog that provides a list of ingredients for the projects their followers are to use. Here is my submission for the very first challenge!
The ingredients were:
Theme: cat or dog
Colors: Black and gold
Technique: Faux Batik---which they provided a video tutorial for!
page of an old book
3 different brads
Here I edged the ripped printed paper w/a gold ink pen; added gold accents to the word 'boo' with the same pen; used Martha Stewart spider stamp on dictionary page for faux batik technique (that was sooooooooo cool, BTW); the cat/pumpkin/boo are a rub-on as well as the sentiment; added gold ribbon and three different colored brads.
Hope I entered in time as I know most followers are 'across the pond'!
