The Splitcoaster Challenges

I'm a member of the Splitcoast Stampers, an online stamping community - okay, THE online stamping community. If you haven't been there yet, you have to take a glimpse:
I get a lot of inspiration there. There are challenges every day - great to try new techniques, new designs or to come down onto basic stamping in the limited supplies challenges.
Yesterday there was an Inspiration Challenge. This was my card for it:
This Day
I was inspired by the colors and the style of all those beautiful things displayed on the featured website, especially by those coffee mugs:

So this is what I came up with.

The image is stamped with Black StazOn on white Chromolux paper. Then I used the Teykol resist technique to set the highlights, then wiped with different shades of blue, purple and pink.
The butterfly brad in the corner is my tribute to all the other cards in the challenge which almost all used one or more butterflies...

Hi everybody!

I did it!
I started an own blog!
Okay, I'm sure I won't have that much time to post something every day, but I want to share all the fun I have with stamping and creating cards with you! So I hope you soon can find here some inspiration - and hopefully start to stamp and create cards yourself!
