Stampin'B Challenge

There was a little confusion as to exactly what this week’s Stampin’Bs challenge was. What was definite was the colors required – Navy and Green. What was a little blurry was whether the card should include stripes – or dots – or plaids. So the hostess, Emily, decided to make any one of those three okay. I chose my favorite pattern -- plaid.



I found some navy and green plaid DP in my “blue” drawer. It was quite masculine-looking, so I went with a masculine card. My card base is Navy, matted with a Light Green (MFP Pistachio Fleck). I stamped the pocket watch with Versafine Majestic Blue and clear embossed it. After cutting out the watch (leaving a little bit of the pistachio showing), I popped it up on dimensionals. Both the vertical piece and the sentiment circle have some distress sponging.

Stamps: Mark’s Finest Papers – Take Time and Father’s Day Paper: Mark’s Finest Papers – Dark Night Navy, Pistachio Fleck; Chatter Box Tie Plaid DP Ink: Versafine Majestic Blue Accessories: Clear embossing powder, Martha Stewart border punch, Ribbon, Circle Nestabilities (plain and inverted scallops), Sponge dauber, Pop dots
