It is only Tuesday afternoon in America, but it's Wednesday morning in Australia and it is my utmost pleasure to be here today with the first of my Guest Designer spots in March for the wonderful challenge Addicted to Stamps and More (ATSM).
My GD honor was the result of my exciting induction into the Wall of Fame at ATSM last week! (BTW, a lot of you got the impression that I had been selected for the Design Team itself, which is not the case; just so there is no misunderstanding.)
This week ATSM is asking that we make cards in honor of International Women's Day 2014 which will be celebrated on March 8, 2014.
Here is my first card:
I chose to keep the coloring monochromatic, using ombre shades of aqua. The woman stamp came to me via my friend Shirley who had originally received it (also containing a man) free in a magazine. Breaking up the couple (sorry!), I stamped the woman over and over to make the pattern. To be honest, I had to do several drafts of this "simple" one-layer card!
The sediment is from SU "Word Play," stamped in SU melon mambo. I brushed Wink of Stella on each of the ladies because, well, while we want to be treated as equals to men, we still want to be women!
I hope you will make a card to celebrate International Women's Day 2014. It's an intriguing challenge and I can't wait to see what you come up with!
Everything used on this card was from my stash. In fact, the image even came from someone else's stash before mine, so I'm also linking my card with the current Simply Create Too challenge which is to use only materials we have on hand; nothing new.
