Welcome to the April Challenge for Serendipity Stamps! This month the challenge is Monograms & Verse! You can get all the details over on the Serendipity Challenge Blog. We have something new…a “Stamp of the Month”. Each month a different image will be 50% off. This month- it’s the Jar Label. And as always, we have a have a gift certificate up for grabs to a random player.
For my Monogram card, rather than just have the Monogram by itself, I used the Monogram snipped from the Thanks die (I also snipped off a bit of the flourish) as the first letter in my greeting. I used a stamp positioner to move the lines of the greeting to better fit the Monogram. I love this Giraffe set and rather than color it, I used a piece of drywall mesh (it’s sticky on the backside) as a stencil, masked the sides, sponged some ink through it and added a little more color in a few of the squares w/ Copics. The image was stamped on top & die cut. I added a black mat then put it back on the larger piece it was cut from so it looks like the grid continues. A few of the sequins from the Wood Sequin combo were sprinkled here & there.
