Friends

This was for today's Limited Supply Challenge on SCS, Create a Background. You had to make a background out of a stamp that wouldn't normally be used as a background stamp. This is the Melanie stamp by Rubber Romance. I stamped a portion of her body for the focal point of the card, and just stamped her legs across the bottom of the card as a background to create movement and to go along with the sentiment. I think it worked out pretty well. This is a really big stamp, so you have to use the WHOLE card to get all of her in. Anyway, I think it fit into the challenge quite well. . .who would ink just the legs of a stamp for the background, right? LOL Thanks for visiting today! Hope your weekend is off to a great start! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Melanie from Rubber Romance, A Muse sentiment; Paper- Regal Rose, DCWV Dark Brown, Whisper White; Ink- Basic Brown, Regal Rose; Accessories- ribbon from Doodliedoo, paper piercer, Chocolate Chip and Regal Rose markers, slit punch.

How great, love the legs as a background under the scallops, how inventive. Reminds me of a theatre curtain halfway down.
