ABNH Challenge One & Four

Hi friends!!

It's time for another challenge over at ABNH today!

1&4. So in celebration of it being the 1st of 2014, we thought it would be fun to incorporate the numbers of the year somehow, so we want you to use 1 of something, and 4 of something else!

It can be 1 stamp and 4 patterned papers, 1 wood veneer and 4 inks, anything you like! But you have to specify what your 1 and 4 items are!

So I deceided to go with 4 ink colours and 1 stamp.

This stamp is SO old but it's still such a goodie.

Remember this one?!

that's what I used for my fireworks! So fun when you can get more uses out of your stamps than their intended images!

So a very easy card to make.

Stamp the 'head' of the flower multiple times over your cardstock, in Versamark ink.
White heat emboss.
Using little sponge daubers, spread ink over the fireworks-bursts, starting from the centre and working outwards (I used a circular motion).
Diecut the numbers (you could easily do this with a word too). The die I used is from PTI.
Mount the panel onto black cardstock, then adhere it to a bright cardbase at an angle!
Trim off any excess cardstock overhang.

that's it!

I hope you like it and you'll join us over at ABNH for our first challenge of the year!

See you again soon!
