WCMD 2015 | Partial Stamping with Kelly

Hi Folks! How fun are these challenges?!? I'm so excited to help winnie & walter celebrate World Card Making Day with a challenge of my own ... to ink only a portion of your stamp. The possibilities!!

In my case, I needed something for my pumpkins to sit in, so I found a floral stamp with lots of tiny petals and used those petals to make a field. Here's how:

Since I just wanted a random mix of patterns, I skipped the acrylic block entirely and just used my hands to hold the stamp. Have you done this before? It's kind of like playing in the mud ... feels wrong but it's fun!

Then you just randomly stamp where you need it with a few different colors. If you're making a set of cards, the nice thing is that they will be different every time.
Here's the final card, with an Autumn field. The moon, stars, pumpkins, owl and sentiment are from our featured set of the month Moonlight (since it's featured, it's also on sale this month!) The flower stamp is a chrysanthemum from a soon-to-be-released set : )

Now it's time for you to take a closer look at your stamps and see what you can come up with! Maybe you'll use the lens of a camera, the rings of a tree stump, the doorway of a house, or an interesting pattern of lines. Your portion of the stamp can be the main feature of your card, can add texture, or can be used to build a scene like I did here.

I seriously can't wait to see what you come up with for this challenge! I will be anxiously awaiting your entries : ) Happy WCMD!

Prize: One randomly chosen project that is linked up will win $50.00 gift credit to the w&w shop.
