You color my world

This month over at the Die Cut Diva's our challenge is something new and we welcome the ever wonderful One happy Cut as our sponsor this month! The something new can be anything from simply being a new item to trying a new technique. For my first card this month I decided to do a new technique. Now I did not come up with this, but after watching Jennifer McGuire's video I knew I had to give it a try.

I made a stamp using a die and some fun foam, now talking about stretching the use of our supplies!

I started by die cutting my shape out of some fun foam and adding some repositionable adhesive to it. After I added it to my acrylic block I inked and stamped it like normal. (Making sure to clean it off very well between colors) Once the background was stamped out, I used the stamp in the set to offset stamp the outline on the crayons.  

I think it a technique I will be using again to stretch my supplies and get more life out of them! Imagine the possibilities with all the dies we own!!! :-)

Don't forget to stop by the Diva's blog to play along for your chance to win!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!!
