Yep.. I'm here with my first Teapot card in weeks. I knew the technique I wanted to use and once I read the challenge, picking stamps was easy.
When I read Heath's story I knew Nobel Deer (retired SU) would have to be included. Heath loves to hunt. He may live in Oklahoma but I think he's an Ozarks man at heart. I recently learned about the Triple Time stamp method through my Missouri stamping group. The technique is shown by dostamping on YouTube . Dawn has a wide range of fabulous tutorials on YouTube.
The concept is to lay all of your light-tone mats on top of each other (without their colored cs mats), stamp your image, then go back and layer them with the CS mats. It adds a neat dimension to the card. Here, the big buck seems to be walking out of the timber (created using Lovely As A Tree). I matted GP white on SU Always Artichoke. The deer and sentiment are stamped in Chocolate Chip and the trees with Always Artichoke. I added a bit of twine to suspend the 'FAITH' charm from, as Heath is strong in his faith. The scallop circle is Paper Studio 1 7/8". The sentiment is from the Floral Wreath set by Gina K Designs.
It felt great to be back in the Studio today and I look forward to playing again and bringing you lots of inspiration!
