Let's Celebrate

Yes, yes I know another challenge another close to closing time. Obviously my brain takes a while to formulate just what it wants to do.

This card is for the Runway Inspired Challenge and Virginia's View as it fits for both.
Have also used another stamp that's never been used before.  I am on a roll I tell you, I can see a dent at the top of the pile. Well I could till the postie arrived and I had my last order added. Now I have to stop, cant take the exchange rate anymore. Will just have to find joy in what I obviously have and still haven't used (yes I am hanging my head when I look at how many posts start with 'used a unused stamp/die)

My goodness I love to waffle. Lets get on. Used a stamp from a Crafters Meow stamp set. White embossed on watercolour paper. Coloured with Zigs but didn't add water as I wanted to keep the vibrancy of the watercolour. I stamped the image three times (Miss Misti came in very handy for lining up). Then I cut two strips for each side of the embossed image and used a die that just cuts a straight line and the stitched look. Added these strips with dimensional foam tape.
Used one of my die cuts from MFT Celebrate cut in black. Added to the bottom and then decided I wanted to add a little something to go with it.
Found the word 'let's' in a stamp set from Stamplorations 'Celebrate'.

Now to get it loaded up before they close this challenge

Think I'll hit Darnell's NBUS as well as I haven't used either stamp before.

Okay thats three challenges covered, one in the nick of time and two with time to spare.

Thanks for coming to visit and I hope you will visit again.

Stunning Aileen. Love it. The bright colours and lots of white space.

I think we can all be accused of NBUS - I love Darnell's challenge for making/inspiring me to use some. I dare say I would not be alone in saying I have many a set where only one or two images have been used insert embarrassed face!

Absolutely gorgeous! You crack me up, really you do, with your last minute challenge entries! It must work, because your entry is stunning. I like to colour with Zigs without water too. The colours are amazing! Xx

This is so perfect for the challenge. I thought that was a stencil when I first looked at it, and I wondered how you colored it. The zig markers look so vibrant. Gorgeous take on the inspiration photo.

I love the geometric design in the center of your card, and how the sentiment is grounded along the bottom. Thanks so much for joining us on the Runway! :)
