Here's to Blog Challenges

Every week brings another Hambo Hoedown

! This week the challenge was to use a Hambo Stamps image (I used Coffee Girl digi image) with its sentiment AND a sketch. I played again with paper piecing, using up some of my smaller pieces of leftover patterned papers, to decorate her dress, the coffee sleeve and the background (on which I printed the sentiment).
Putting the image all together and popping her out with dimensional dots was quite an adventure, but I think she’s kinda cute, in a crazed kind of way. LOL I added a second sentiment from a rubber stamp I found at a garage sale, and I distressed the edges of the card base by sanding the core-dinations paper and then inking them with purple ink. I cut the circles with my Creative memories circle cutter, colored with Copics, and stamped a few coffee beans with a stamp set from Stampin Up (let’s give credit where credit is due!).
For your chance at this challenge, go to Hambo Challenge Blog. Every time you enter a challenge, they will send you a free digi image for the next week. Cool beans, huh?!
