Here is my second card for the Market Street Stamps Paint the Town Color Challenge. To see the first card click here.
As I only own a few MSS and only in backgrounds, I decided to get a little creative with the use of those that I do own… More MSS with other images are on the way to me but while waiting… Here is how I used the Honeycomb stamp. By using my Fiskars stamp press and pressing down where ever it will ink up on the card on something with already lots of layered circles!
I’m also entering this into the Moxie Fab World Punches Challenge here.

Oh boy.. I saw the punches challenge on Moxie Fab Worldand decided to give it a go. Got a lot of punches? Give it a try too! I have a problem: I don’t own a lot of punches, so for my own take on this challenge I wanted to use as many of the punches I do have for this card and the final effect, I think, looks kind of like a kindergardener’s work >_< But here goes nothing… I tried my best, don’t laugh!
So I used some white tissue (from packaging and stuff that I save and hoard >_<), pink crepe and pink tissue, again from hoarding, to create the flower. And then I inked it up a little on the petals (punched with Stampin’ Up scallop thingy) with Antique Linen distress ink. I added a smaller pink cardstock circle in the middle for more support before throwing in the metal brad. Also, punched the leaves using my circle punches (EK Success makes great ones!), used up some scrap paper in the process, woo hoo! I had to use those butterflies from a Martha Stewart punch as well, they are so adorable and is my favourite butterfly punch 🙂 “Hey!” was from an alphabet set by Paper Smooches… I do love Kim’s fun handwriting.. Makes everything cuter, so I had to add it, to make this look cuter. LOL. I don’t have fringe scissors like the Martha Stewart one, so I painfully hand cut my grass! Why do I keep doing things that make me feel like I am going blind? Haha!!! My eyes were actually starting to cross up! @_@ So that is my attempt at the punch challenge! I know it’s not really innovative but it’s the effort that counts sometimes, eh? Eh? 🙂
Before I go, can I get a show of hands if there is anyone reading this blog that love beauty, make up and fashion related stuff?
