SCRS 1st Anniversary Throwback Challenge

Hi all! Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps is celebrating their 1st Anniversary this month and there will be lots of festivities going on. First up is the 1st Anniversary Throwback Challenge.

Here is my card for the challenge.

The challenge is to use one of the original 8 stamps (Charlotte with a Rose, Cocktail Emily, Cupcake Ruby, Lantern Rin, Scooter Chloe, Surfing Oliver, Swimming Lucy, Turntable Josh) for your cards. This challenge will run all month and the winner of this challenge will receive the ENTIRE August release. How cool is that? Can't wait to see what you make for this challenge!

I used the beautiful Charlotte with a Rose for my card. She is definitely one of my all time favorites. I know her apron and headscarf my look "dirty," but they are really intended to be light grey-ish. =) She is stamped on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock. The image is then colored with Copic markers before I cut and embossed it using a Labels 18 die.

I then masked Charlotte using this masking paper and stamped Hero Arts Friend Definition over the piece. The whole piece is then inked with antique linen distress ink. The patterned paper is from Out of Print collection by BasicGrey, I can only tell you that this collection is a must have! Yummy! =) The heart tag and sentiment are from Tiny Tags by Papertrey Ink.

That's it for now. Please check out what the other design team members came up with for this challenge and find out all the details for the challenge here.

Oh! Here is the special sale that SCRS is running this month:
