Dynamic Duos 8 and Just Add Ink 123

Sunday, June 24, 2012

Because Blogger lets us schedule posts ahead of time, it looks like I have been pretty busy in my stamp room the last week.  But the truth is that I haven't set foot in there since last Monday!  Yikes!  This has been an unusually busy week for me topped off with my father having medical issues that necessitated him going to the hospital on Wednesday so Saturday evening was the first chance I had to spend some time with my stamps.

All my favorite challenge sites were calling my name and I decided to answer the call from Dynamic Duos and Just Add Ink.



The sketch was a beautiful CAS one and I thought it would be perfect for the two-color themed challenge.  I thought about adding some patterned paper but ended up keeping the clean lines of the sketch as simple as possible.  I replaced the library clip from the sketch with an Always Artichoke button tied with some baker's twine and the stamped images are from Technique Tuesday.

I hope to make it back into my stamp room later today.  I always feel like I get rusty if I stay away too long! Thanks for stopping by!
