PTI's Samp-a-faire Challenge #5!!!

Hi, again!!!

Today, PTI is sponsoring a Stamp-a-faire in Cincinnati, Ohio and I'm so disappointed that I was not able to attend.......But, they are offering challenges every hour on the hour and I am doing my best to partake in each one.

So, you know what that means, right????
Lots of posts today!!!

This is for the Stamp-a-faire Challenge #5 which is to take a solid shape, and create your own custom "faux" border!

Another card with no sketch as a starting point!!!

See what you think!
I used one of the little mats in Tiny Tags and only stamped half of it around the card.  I think it turned out perfectly.  The real fun was making the swirly rainbow colored.  Too fun!

I'm also entering this in the Color Throwdown #151 Color Challenge!  I love the colors this time which are light pink, dark pink and yellow!

Materials Used (All PTI, unless otherwise noted):
Tiny Tags stamp set
Happy Trails stamp set
Tim Holtz distress inks - Barn Door, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Shabby Shutters, Chipped Sapphire, and Dusty Concord
True Black & Stamper's Select White cardstock
Wrinkled Ribbon made by me
VersaFine ink - Onyx Black

Thanks for taking a peek, today!

Like the calligraphy pen & art palette look to this. I do calligraphy. My daughter is studying Art Animation in college and is quite the artist. Ck out my blog if you like and you can see a sketch she did of Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow on my blog sidebar.
