Getting Out of My Comfort Zone...
I started out by first stamping my image (Hero Arts Bird Collage) in PTI's True Black on kraft cardstock. I then set it aside for TWO DAYS and began looking through my stash for patterned paper that I could use for the card. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that I had this really cool pack of designer papers from Stampin Up! called Day & Night! To be honest, I don't even remember purchasing them, but obviously and thankfully I did! After that, with a little help from the current Card Patterns sketch everything fell into place and I really like what resulted. I'm also going to enter this card in the current City Crafters challenge to "stamp it out".
Thanks for taking a peek.... hope you take a step outside your comfort zone!
