CHALLENGE CARD


Hi,

Hope you are all OK.... I had the most wonderful time watching last nights Proms on the TV, it was 'Sondheim's 80th Birthday Celebration', I was clapping away on the sofa with a big grin on my face, it was inspiring. My favourite pieces were 'Sweeney Todd' and 'Into the Woods'.

Now I expect you wonder why am telling you all this........well.... it inspired me to make this card. The red etc was the blood from Sweeney Todd and the trees from Into the Woods.......

I used 3 stamps to make the card, (two being old ones and one new one) distress inks, and glossy accents. Luckily this fits into 3 challenges, how cool is that.........lol

Gingersnap Creations Color Challenge of Yellow-Orange-Red

The Sunday Stampers Week 114, Something Old, Something New. and

The Artistic Stamper's New Challenge Blog which is also Something Old, Something New.

Hope you like it as I was so happy making it after that night at the Proms, albeit from the sofa.....
Have a Happy Day, Annette x
