Dressform Theme Times Three

I came across a new challenge site, for me, while visiting one of my sister design team member's blog, Dot's Dabbles. She was entering her gorgeous, African Trio cards at the Crafty Cardmaker Challenge. The challenge was interesting to me in that you are to "Use it Three Times." It could be a stamp, a theme, a style, three ways. I had just finished some thank you notes all with a dressforms theme with stamps by Oxford Impressions and so I thought I would enter the challenge as well. These cards were created out of my now famous duffel bag, which I carry with me when we travel as I cannot bare to be without my card stash, and are made up of bits and pieces of mostly scraps. I am always facinated as to how color selection can make the very same stamps take on a completely different look or evoke a different feeling or era. Looking forward to meeting some new fellow artists over at Crafty Cardmaker. Thanks for stopping by! Best, Yvonne

Not the duffel bag again!!!! Is it a tardis?!!
How amazing that you create so many amazing pieces of art from supplies contained in a bag.
You used a set of stamps that I adore, never tire of this set.
It is fascinating how the same stamp can look so different.

That Duffel bag is amazing - always the right stash!
These cards are gorgeous and all so different from 1 set of stamps.

It is surely a Mary Poppins carpet bag not a duffle bag!? I love all 3 cards, a marvellous job on your travels. Hugs Caz
