Jen's 90 minute Scramble

Today Jen was our challenge master over at the Hero Arts Flickr group.  She challenge us to produce a card that
~ used "filler" stamps  (you know those little bitty stamps you find on stamp sets) as a focal point
~ stitching -real or faux
~ create you own sentiment.....

Quite a bit of a challenge.... but I knew what I wanted to do..

Scramble 22/07/12

I drew a circle in pencil onto my card and using some of the little bitty stamps and some of the bright distress inks and stamped around my circle.  I made my sentiment by only stamping part of a sentiment stamp and adding a little heart.   I did some faux stitching around the edge of my panel.  This is a great way to stretch your stamps as well....

I've also added this to Anne's giveaway challenge (HERE)  Anne is celebrating her 4th Blogoversary.  Congratulations to Anne on this achievement.

Am feeling tired tonight.... the weekends are never long enough to do everything I want to do... so off to bed for an early night.
