Unbirthday Challenge at Little Tangles
Unbirthday Challenge - what is that - you may ask - I certainly did. It is the challenge that is going on over at Neat & Tangled. It means you should use a stamp that is not normally used for birthday cards. First my mind was set on a Christmas stamp - since I have been using quite a few lately....but all my ideas did not pan out.
So today one of my virtual friends emailed me and told me she visited the Hundertwasser tower in Abensberg - a small town not too far away from where I used to live in Germany. Now I am a big fan of Hundertwasser, but I have been unaware of the nearby treasure. Next year I have to go there.... but to make things short - I got the idea for my card.
I have this old rubber stamp at home - found it in the rummage bin at AC Moores and it is not intended for stamping - it was for pottery. But rubber is rubber and why not stamp with it. The pattern certainly reminded me about Hunderwasser and I colored it with Copics in a way that he might have been happy with it....
The sentiment is from Paper Smooches - Sentiment sampler - I wish it would have been from Little Tangles....maybe soon...
I am also linking this card with the Paper Players One Layer card challenge.
This is a photo of the tower - pretty amazing, isn't it?
