2RB Banana Split Sunday Challenge No. 23


Today's 2RedBananas' Banana Split Sunday Challenge is to use only cardstock on your project - that means no patterned paper, flowers, buttons, ribbon, brads, etc. Sound difficult? OK, I guess we can let you use one small embellishment along with the cardstock. So if you just don't think a card (or layout, etc.) is complete without a little something extra, go ahead and add that one thing to finish it off. Go to 2RB's blog for more information and to see the DT members' samples.
After a couple of false starts (where I kept reaching for patterned paper) I finally managed to make a card using nothing but cardstock. Yay.

The base is brown CS that I stamped with the Stampabilities Dotted Circles stamp using VersaMark watermark ink. The blue CS was stamped with the same stamp, but I used a glue pad and glitter.

The image is the Penny's Mushroom stamp from 2RedBananas. I stamped it with StazOn and colored it with watercolor pencils and a Stardust pen. The sentiment is from a small set I bought from Target's dollar spot. I have no idea who the manufacturer is.

Stamps: Dotted Circles - Stampabilities, Penny's Mushroom - 2RedBananas
Ink: Timber Brown - StazOn, VersaMark - Tuskineko, Stardust pen - Sakura
Paper: Cardstock - Bazzil
Other: Glue Pad - Tsukineko, Pearl glitter - Art Glitter
