Your Next Stamp Challenge #2: Shape Card

Click to enlarge image
It's Wednesday and time for a new challenge over at Your Next Stamp! Challenge #2 is being hosted by my wonderful DT Starlet sister Lana, and she has chosen the theme of "shape card". As always, a randomly picked winner with receive a YNS stamp! You have 2 whole weeks to join in with each YNS challenge - plenty of time to place your order and receive your stamps from the YNS store! And remember that there are some really cute limited edition YNS Halloween digi stamps available at the store until 31st October for instant gratification!

So onto my card ... I have to confess that I have never made a shaped card before so I went for a rather predictable scalloped circle!! I handmade this scalloped circle card by using a compass to draw a large circle onto a white 4.5" square card and then cut it out using my scallop scissors (...making sure I overlapped the circle so that I still had a fold!). I then coloured the edges of the card using my RV10 Copic Ciao to give it a pink cloudy/mottled effect.

I chose to use this cute Bubbly Fun Fhiona stamp (part of a 10 piece stamp set) and therefore wanted to create a bit of a bathroom effect by using some striped paper for the 'wall' and some patterned paper for the 'tiled floor'. Because I cut Fhiona out, I recreated the bubble pattern that are part of the original stamp by using some self-adhesive pearls. Some pink and brown spotty ribbon from my stash together with some liquid pearls, and voila!

Thanks for popping by everyone - have a great day!

Hugs, Sem x
