Winnie & Walter WCMD Blog Hop!

Hi Folks! Welcome to Winnie & Walter's World Card Making Day Blog Hop, which is only part of the festivities happening today throughout the rest of this month at the Winnie & Walter blog. You may have come from Laura Bassen's blog, one of my all-time favorite card makers!


Along with the hop, there are several challenges on the Winnie & Walter blog, including my challenge to stretch your stamps by using a stamp in a way other than it was intended. My card below does just that.
    
     
Can you guess which of the following stamps was used on the card, and where?
  

  
Yes?

No?

Here's a hint:
   

OK, that was a pretty big hint, especially since it showed the actual stamp! I used the large, circular tree from Kindness with Evelin T Designs to make the rainbow-ish border on top. This was done by inking only the top half of the tree and then stamping in alternating directions.


 
Then I used my watercolors to loosely fill in the channels. The sentiment is from a classic set, the Big, the Bold and Party.

Quite a different look than a card with a tree on it, eh? After you finish hoping, I hope you consider playing along with some of the challenges at w&w, especially my Stretch Your Stamps Challenge. I can't wait to come see what you've made!

Your next stop on the hop is Rubeena Naz who will wow you with another w&w creation.

Be sure to comment along the way for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the Winnie & Walter shop; there will be three of these prizes given out!
 
Happy WCMD!
