This week's Stamp Simply Challenge is to be thrifty and use either brown postal wrap, or a brown grocery sack. I cut up a grocery sack for this challenge.
I began by stamping my new JustRite Autumn Blessings set, purchased from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store, with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto PaperTrey Ink's Rustic White cardstock. What a gorgeous sheath of Indian Corn! I colored the image with multiple Copic markers, then paper pieced the bow with dp from Basic Grey's Boxer 6 x 6" paper pad.
Basic Grey Boxer layers make up the body of the design, along with my paper bag. I ran a layer of grocery sack through my Fiskars paper crimper, then ruffled up the edges to simulate a frilly edged border.
I used a tan Copic marker to add shadows on the panels of decorator paper edges, under the oval edges, and on the paper pieced bow.
I cannot wait to see what the other Stamp Simply design team ladies have come up with! Be sure to check them out!
