Postage Due for Unscripted Sketch178 Challenge

Good Morning stamping friends, I hope your weekend is going good. I finished my tomatoes yesterday and took what I didn't want to town to my recruit at her restaurant and to a coworker. I blanched and cut up a whole big bowl that I will finish up today after church so I am done with it. I am tired of the mess in my kitchen and am looking forward to getting the stuff put away.  It is going to be a nice day today too it looks like.  Today is the last day of the In Color Ribbon special. I hope you didn't miss out on that spectacular special. 

I created this card for the Unscripted Sketch Challenge which is a layout challenge. I decided to use this Postage Due set again with the Fan Fair DSP . I just took my sponges and different ink pads and sponged color onto my stamp for a collage look. I colored my Bakers Twine again and it almost looks so orangey in my picture but it is Riding Hood Red ink. HMMM??? I stamped the image again and punched out a tire with the 1-1/4" Circle Punch and popped it up with a Dimensional for some texture. The greeting on the banner is from the Summer Solstice stamp set.

Here are the details:
Stamp Sets: Postage Due, Summer Solstice
Card Stock: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Fan Fair DSP
Inks: Island Indigo, More Mustard, Riding Hood Red Ink Pad and Refill, Crumb Cake
Tools and Accessories: 1-1/4" Circle Punch, Baker's Twine,Sponge, Dimensionals
Thanks for stopping by today. I need to get going to church but let me know if you have any questions. 
Live, Love, Laugh,Stamp!  Hugs, Bev
