I set a goal for myself to participate in every one of the Moxie Fab challenges this week! However, the challenges are coming fast and furious and I can't keep up. So I decided to combine 2 challenges in one card.
This card combines the "make your own background paper" challenge with the "Stamp with a homemade stamp" challenge.
Here's what I did. First, I used bubble wrap and turquoise ink to stamp the background. I like bubble wrap stamping with ink better than bubble wrap stamping with paint for cards, because I usually end up with a warped card from too much paint slopped on by the bubble wrap!
The turquoise ink did come out lighter than I would have liked, but this is some old, cheap-o Ink It Up ink that AC Moore doesn't even sell anymore!
Next, I used a toilet paper tube and paint to stamp the large circles. I stamped off the tube a couple times to make sure I didn't get too much paint onto the card.
Finally I layered a sentiment sticker onto a border sticker, and put all that on top of a torn strip of music. The music is actually from the bag I got at a music store when I went in to buy my kids' piano book. I think I need to go back there and buy more stuff just so I can get more of those bags! :)
Thanks for looking!
