Anyways, so this week her challenge was to search through your stash of stamps and use only your punctuation marks to create a card. Go stop by her blog right now and see the wonderful cards and technqiues she shares.
As for the challenge, oops! I thought, I own but one set of alphabets, that too a tiny one..didn't even know if it contained any punctuation marks. But it did, there was an exclamation, a question mark, a comma and a full stop. And I have owned this set for 3 yrs. Used it, maybe twice till date, and I know this today..go figure!!
This is one thing I like about such challenges, they make you think outside the box..and I'm pretty happy with the results.
A bit more about the card. Fabriano CS. Love this thick CS. Now if you haven't guessed by now, the top part of the border is made of question marks and the straight border is exclamation marks.
That's all to the card. oh yes! I could not stop myself from edging the borders with black ink. Just to give a finishing touch to the card. Here's a close up of the border:
