Today I'm submitting a card for a new-to-me challenge called Mod Squad Challenge. I loved the Mod Squad TV show when I was a kid, so how could I not enter this challenge :)
(In the interests of not appearing too old, I would like to point out that in New Zealand, we got TV shows years after they screened in the US.... LOL)
The challenge is to find a designer that you like and case one of their cards. I chose Jen Mitchell, whose stamping style I really admire. Finding a card to case involved a pleasant visit to her blog, where I found this card from November last year.
I decided to case the colors and the collage style of Jen's card. My card is quite a bit different in layout but I hope you can see where the inspiration came from:
This is a one-layer card and uses many stamps from Stampers Anonymous and Hampton Art Stamps. I masked off an area of my card base and randomly stamped images using Always Artichoke, Sahara Sand and Crumb Cake ink. The sentiment is a Penny Black stamp and was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
I stamped a star in Crumb Cake and cut it out before lightly sponging the edges. I thought I'd randomly placed some Candy Dots, but looking at the photo, I can see I ended up with a near perfect triangle :)
The inside was finished in a similar manner:
Thanks for looking. Go check out the new challenge. It looks like it's going to be fun.
