Outlines Rubber Stamp Challenge # 24

Hello!!!  It's Monday and time for a new Outlines Rubber Stamp design team challenge.  We're doing things a little bit different with our challenges.  Join the Design Team in our weekly challenges with a chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate each week!  Please check out the details of how to play and win on the Outlines Blog

This week our challenge was to create a card with ribbons and bows.  I hope you'll create along with us this week!


While I only have one bow on the card, I think it qualifies.  And yes... you should adjust your monitor.  It's a really bright card!

I stamped the Sparkle Pocket (H-803) image and colored with Copic markers.  To give my pocket a denim look, I wet a piece of cloth with copic blending solution and pressed on my colored image.  The key to keeping the texture crisp is to not have your cloth too wet.  I pulled a strip of denim off an old pair of my son's jeans and used to tie my single bow.  A few dots of Chrome Silver Pearl pen gives my denim a little be-dazzled look.

But, my pocket wouldn't be complete unless it was a real pocket.  Using dimensional tape, I secured the pocket image to the front of my card along the edges so a small tag will fit inside.  I think it would make a great gift card holder, don't you?

I'd love it if you stopped by to visit the other designers for more inspiration.  And don't forget you can join in our fun!
