Destination New York City

     I've been invited to be a Guest Designer at the new Always Use Rubber challenge which has a theme this fortnight of "Destinations."   I dug through my Sparkle n Sprinkle rubber stamps and found this wonderful Statue of Liberty stamp so my destination is New York, New York.

     I started by coloring the statue with my ProMarkers, then I die cut the image with a die from Bo Bunny.  The frame around the image is also cut with a die from that same set and was cut from a scrap of blue CS.   The sentiment is stamped and heat embossed with black EP.   The ribbon came from my stash and I die cut little daisies from scraps, used loose glitter on them, and then added a gem stone to the center of each one.  Everything was layered onto a deep, ocean blue, card base.

     Come play along this week.  You do have to use a rubber stamp in this challenge but I know you must have a drawer full of those even if you've turned into a digi stamp crafter these days.  Put on your thinking cap and come up with a wonderful 'Destination,' make a card and then enter the challenge.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

  2. Your coloring is great here, you have a great patina look with it. Fun die frame and your little flowers and ribbon/bow pull everything together. Enjoy your weekend.
