Good morning, everyone!!!
I have to say that I am totally shocked that I have not done a MIM challenge since July 7th!!! What's wrong with me??? I know........It was a busy, busy summer, but I had no idea it's been that long!
So, this MIM focus is on creating a background using non-background stamps. Pretty cool idea and a totally different way to look at your stamps. I chose to use my "new to me" Winter Swirls stamp set (I got it in the PTI sell/trade thread). You can take a peek at the PaperTrey Ink Make It Monday #31 video by Dawn McVey by going to Nichole's blog.
I absolutely love how this background turned out. The cranberry and browns work so well together!
Here's the Make It Monday Video, if you are interested in learning this technique:
I also used the Christmas Card #40 Challenge to make it work with the MIM challenge. Using the cranberry, chocolate and cream made a gorgeous card!
Materials Used (All PTI, unless otherwise noted):
Winter Swirls stamp set
Fillable Frames #10 die
Vintage Cream, Rustic Cream and Dark Chocolate cardstock
VersaFine ink - Vintage Sepia and Crimson RedMisc. ribbon
Thanks for visiting me today and if you have time, do check out that video it is an awesome technique that I will use again!
