A Back-to-Basic Friday Fun Challenge

Sherry is issuing our Friday Fun Challenges this month and she has started us off with a toughie....

Back to Basics- Remember when you first started stamping and all you had was card stock, ink and stamps? it’s time to put away our fancy toys and patterned paper and make a card with the very basics.

So for this challenge you are limited to the following:

~Stamps: As many as you like

~Ink: up to 3 colors (not counting black or brown)

~Paper: up to 3 colors of card stock plus one neutral; NO patterned paper.

~Coloring medium: You can use ONE coloring medium (markers, pastels, pencils, etc.)

~Embellishments: ONE kind. You can use more than one of the same kind…(5 brads, two ribbons, etc.) but only ONE kind.

~NO Nestabilities but punches are ok.


Wanna play along?
