TST #120 Take a Letter...

Today at Try Stampin on Tuesday we have a simple yet challenging card sketch for you to have fun with.  I say simple because at first glance it is a simple sketch.  However, once I started to think about it it became a challenge as to what to do.
I decided, after going through all my stamp sets to use Postage Due.  This set gave me everything that I needed to complete the card front.  
Using markers I inked up the largest stamp from the set and stamped it.  By using the markers you are able to colour different sections without blending the colours.  Using the same technique I made the little stamps as well.
The background stamp was from Classic Borders.  I first cut my green DSP and then marked where the stamp should go.  Using a Stamp-a-ma-jig I stamped the border so that it would go under the DSP as well.
I am hoping that I will be able to take part in the colour challenge over at The Play Date Cafe fingers crossed that I am able to get my card in on time.

Hope you like what I have come up with.  Now it's your turn.  Join in on the fun, and see what the other Great Designers have in store for you at Try Stampin on Tuesday.  

Thanks for stopping by.
