Market Street Stamps Block Party

This is my 3rd Post of the day, please scroll down to see the other projects I created.


Welcome to all my followers and new followers.  Remember I have a giveway which you can find here this will be open until Sept. 3.

Market Street Stamps is having their very first Block Party
All you  have to do is:
Create a new project with MSS stamps! It can be anything (cards, layouts, altered items, etc.)- be creative and have FUN!
  • Link your project below by Sunday, August 28th at 11:59 PM Central Time
  • Note: Your creations for this contest will not be considered for the Cream of the Crop contest. Each MSS contest or challenge requires a separate, unique entry to be eligible to win!
Here is my Project
This is my actual first time really using my distress inks and playing with them.  I had to watch a short video to just really give me an idea of what I am doing.  I think it turned out good (I think), LOL
For my project I decided to make a tag.  I used my MSS Gone Campin' set I colored it with my copics and added glossy accents on the wings of my fly so it looks a bit translucent.
Yes, I love my MSS Stamp because I bought this set and I don't even go Camping, LOL! not that I don't want to but all the kids and pretty much the hubby are scared of bugs, maybe one of these days we might try it.  But this will be a tag for one of my friends that love's to go camping. I was going to make a gift bag with items to make smore's.  Her kids are going to love it so much!

Don't forget to come back tomorrow as My Creative Time is having a Mini Blog Hop tomorrow.

I'm not big on roughing it either, my idea of camping is staying at a hotel without room service! LOL! Your tag is adorable! I love that you played with the distress inks, you got such a wonderful look out if it!! Glad you came out to play at the Market Street Block Party!
