Stamp Simply #112 - Brown Baggin' It!

Stamp Simply #112 - November 6th- ssnotime112 - Today's challenge is all about being Thrifty. Incorporate the simple and natural look of brown postal wrap and/or the inside of brown paper grocery sacks in to your card or project. How ever you want to create it. Upload your project to Spiltcoast and use the keyword "ssnotime112". Check out all the Challenge Details and see Sharon's creation on her blog No Time to Stamp.
---------------------------
Please check out the great samples from the Stamp Simply Challenge today on the blogs of these totally creative designers: Janine, AJ, Deb and Barbara, also Barb Schram (Barb is kindly filling in for a bit as Jennifer Buck takes some time off.) We welcome Bethany Paull as our special guest stamper for November! Julie and Tammy are taking the night off, but they will be back next week!
----------------------------
I kept the stamping simple. I used a brown grocery bag to paper piece Prancer's head and body. I also paper pieced his scarf. After using a plain bag to dress him, I felt he deserved to get some extra sparkle. And I added the crystals.... one after another and another. I colored the star and the feet using a Copic Marker.

I also incorporated three strips of brown bag in my card base layers, then I had to add some white stitch marks.... it looked so "brown bag like" with out anything!!! A few little gold sticky dots along the side and a little triple loop silk bow, created with the Bow Easy to finish it up. Final Card size is an A2.

  8. Adorable!!!! I especially love all the JEWELS to fancy him up. I watched a 4 pt. buck in my back yard for about 20 minutes yesterday. He kept stamping his front paws looking for a female or a fight. He could have used the jewels.....
