big thanks...



I love the look and feel of wood mount stamps.  Truth be told, my go-to stamps are typically the clear ones that I have.  There is something about that Impress whale, I just love it!  I teamed it up with an A Muse sentiment, which yes, I used my stamp-a-ma-jig.


The washi is on the card base and everything else is on a separate panel.


I was inspired by the current Runway Inspired Challenge:


okay, so I scoured my stash, at least what was unpacked, for something black and white striped.  NADA

So my card is me thinking outside of the box.  I was inspired by the

black & white = black and white floral washi

pops of color = enamel dots

the soft gray brick = stamped the whale in provincial gray

I haven't played along with RIC in along time so this was a great challenge for me!

Here's my stamp for sale for the day:
