I have very little artistic talent which is why I like stamping. The stamps do most of the work.
So with challenges which go off piste my efforts usually look like something a child has done. With this challenge from Less is More I have made ...Oh something which looks like a child has done it!
The challenge was Adapt a Fingerprint.
After various messy ideas this is what I made. It's for my little neighbour who will be 8 so she'll probably appreciate it.
It seems a few people found this more challenging than usual but there are some great cards. At least I had a go and these inky finger prints are on the front not the back or inside as is usually the case! The lovely curly stamp is Hobby Art.
I also finished it in time. Below is what was to be my entry for the recycled week and then when not finished in time, the Earth Tones week. I finally had a tidy of my desk and finished it.
The panel is handmade paper which I made a while ago, probably from old school newsletters. The ribbons are also cut from the insides or label of a new clothe.It even had writing on the other side, you can see the back here, so who knows why I kept it. It seems I'm not alone though.
I'm much more pleased with this one. The stamps here are
