May Card Chain Challenge Reveal

I'm so glad we are still doing the Card Chain Challenge.  It's such fun to receive a card and to send a card anywhere around the world.

The challenge directions include a Color, Sketch, Theme and Product/Technique option and within the theme option is always "Friendship", so you never have to really worry if you just blank out on the other options.

I didn't start out with this stencil or die.  I didn't like how the first panel I stenciled turned out and started over with this die.  Here I used two different oxide inks to  one of the stencils from the a Postage Collage stencil set.   

Waffle Flower Postage Collage Die
Waffle Flower Books and Coffee Combo (both stamps & dies)
Waffle Flower Hello Friend Combo (both stamps & dies)
Waffle Flower Postage Collage Coloring Stencil (1 of 2)
Hero Hues Enamel Dots - clear

Vagabond die cut machine

Your card is great. I love the colour and all the little details on the postage stamps, especially the little animals poking their heads out xx
