Lauren says, "Writing the description of my card last week, I realized that I've fallen into the habit, in cardstock challenges, of nearly always relying on texture to replace pattern. Which isn't a bad thing, necessarily, but it was starting to feel a little predictable. So this week I decided to burst definitively out of my comfort zone and get inky! To make my grungy background I used 1 mask, 3 mists, 5 inkpads, and 9 or 10 different stamps in a frenzy of layering that was waaaaaaaaaay too much fun. Patterned paper? No, thanks, I'm ok without it, lol!"
Stephanie says, "Since going *inky* is usually my go to technique for cardstock, I decided to switch it up this week as well and create a clean & simple design. My sweet little Deer Family were stamped in Rhubarb Stalk Momento ink, die cut, and matted on a coordinating cardstock die cut. A touch of silver ribbon, touches of silver glitter pen on the ornaments, and a few silver ball embellishments, and my clean & simple design was done."
So whether you go inky ... textury ... or even clean & simple ... just break out your cardstock collection (we know you have one) and have some fun. Cards should be linked-up by no later than 6pm (EST) on Wednesday, July 17th.
