Today on the Flickr Hero Arts Group, Martha hosted the 90 min scramble and for once it was at a very convenient time for me.... 8.00am on a Sunday morning. She had a great challenge.... to do a scrapling card... using up that little scrap of card that comes about when cutting down a rectangle card to a square one.
My blue scrapling was made mostly with scraps on the desk. The long strip was from cutting an A4 card into a square card. I ended up with a few long strips that I usually keep for stamping and making into banners. The background was a scrap where I tried double stamping but it was a little "off" Not quite where I wanted the stamping. The cupcake was paper pieced with two scraps in the pile and even the little ribbon was a scrap on the desk.
For the brown one, I used a new Tim Holtz stencil and some Tea Dye distress ink and then edged with a Brown Pitt Calligraphy pen from Faber Castell. The coffee cup was stamped on the background and then again on a scrap, coloured and then cut out and layered on top. It was fun pulling out some older Hero Arts Sparkle clear sets to make these two.
I then made another couple of scraplings - but just now realised I didn't quite follow the instructions as they should have been more than one layer!!!!
The blue on is made like a mini tag card, using new Hero Arts goodies... the ink being Neon blue and the stamp from the new "Forever" Stamp your Story set. Just added a sentiment from the "Everday Sayings" set (an older one)
And the brown balloons, a very CAS scrapling using one of the stamps in the "Flying Air Ships" cling set. Simply coloured with Copics.
Had a fun 90 mins making these. Now getting ready to head down to the beach to enjoy the late summer sun.
