Hanna Stamps have arrived!



Hanna arrived safely yesterday and this morning, I got to play. This card was created for a card sketch over at The Stamp Shack. Each week, the Creative Team gives us a new challenge. This style is called 'retiform' and simply means "arranged like a net". It was easy to do by drawing a grid on the card and then masking each section and sponging the edges. Then, because Hanna Stamps are so versatile, I stamped the main image in the middle and all the things Hanna "needs" around her. Dream on, girl, we're all in the same boat!

The thing I found most interesting about this card is that it requires so few embellishments. So, I used my new Bella's Baubles, in Pink Grapefruit, to surround the main image. I tried to put some ribbon on the card, but it just became too busy, so I just stopped at the baubles.

Cardstock: PTI Select White
Stamps: Hanna Stamps
Ink: Brilliance Pearlescent Purple
Embellishments: Bella's Baubles
