Making Art! Challenge #18

I've admired Wendy Vecchi's stamps and art work for several years. Like a lurker..... from afar.....

Then I joined the EverythingWendyVecchi Yahoo group and this last week won a set of Wendy's stamps!! Then bought some more stamps..... And from there this tale runs..... not into a wall, but a card.....


This challenge asked for: 1) striped paper, 2) rectangle frame, 3) Wendy stamp. I had fun pulling paper out of the old stash: Bazzill cardstock, Die Cuts with a View striped paper, Basic Grey Black Tie (green) & Basics (Ledger-lined).

Wendy's HOMEMADE ART stamp was inked up with Ranger's Walnut Stain distress ink; this was also used to ink the edges of the striped & green papers.

Since my daughter and son-in-law have just made an offer on their first home, I'll put this card in the "stash" with the hopes that it can be mailed for their first house-warming!!!

Thanks for looking.

Love it, Margaret! Welcome to EWV! I'm a relative newbie, too. On a side note...my in-laws live in Avondale. ;-)

Well congratulations on your win, which you have put to beautiful use! Love this card and I am sure your daughter and SIL will also! Good luck to them!

Go, girl! The universe is talking if you join a group AND win a set of stamps. Much less ones as cool as Wendy's! And your little blurb under your awesome photo has left me literally laughing out loud. Hope you are having a wonderful day!
