Featured Stamper Challenge

This Sunday a new challenge was started over at SCS. It is called the Featured Stamper Challenge.
Each week a different stamper will be featured and the challenge is to case that stamper.

This weeks featured stamper is Krabearkub. He is a very talented stamper and I already had several of his creations in my favorites. The card I chose however, was a new creation. After I finished my card I realized that I had cased his entry for the challenge.

I kept the layout that Kurtis used. I wanted to try out some watercoloring techniques I had read about over at Sweet Miss Daisy's Blog. So I changed the image to a flower from the In Full Bloom set. I think I did a pretty fair job. I also wanted to keep the simplicity that he had in his card. So the only other stamping is on the Marigold panel and the sentiment. I did not have a metal edged tag, so I just layered my image onto a piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock. I loved the detail of the paper piercing so I definitely kept that.

Stamps: In Full Bloom & Warmest Regards Ink: Jet Black StazOn, Chocolate Chip, Marigold Morning & Buckaroo Blue Paper: Watercolor paper, Chocolate Chip, Marigold Morning & Buckaroo Blue Accessories: Paper piercer and template, Aquapainter and Chocolate grosgrain

You did a great job with the challenge! I envy Kurtis' ability to have cards that look like they should be in the Idea Book!

Julie I love it! Simply but awesome. Love the colors, the placement of the image and popping with the chocolate chip. Although I do not know Kurtis I would love to see his work....

Great job on the watercoloring! I'm still learning myself, but I think you're advancing quite well! This set is a good one to practice on - pretty card!
