Daring Cardmakers 20/20 Vision

WOW a toughie this week from Kathy and it's taken me all day to decide on a design for this one.
Stamping as usual from me cos if I tried to get clever with papers, flowers and brads I would come badly unstuck.
So twenty faces, twenty pairs of eyes, twenty mouths.....however you want to count it....there are twenty.
I've been dying to use these Stampington stamps for ages and this card was also a good way to use up some small pieces of cream card.
Images are stamped in black Stazon and then cut randomly and coloured with my Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads........I just lurrrrrrrrve those colours.
The images have been mounted onto black card and then onto a cream card blank....which you can't see on the scan.
I did try to put a frame around it in my photo programme but it didn't look too
The word is cut by my mate Jimminy Cricut in Base Camp, using a shadow cut for the black and then normal cut for the coloured letters which were cut in cream card and then inked.
So have you 'Dared' yet?
Thanks girls........I enjoyed this one.


  1. well done Sheila ! its lovely- you're very good- coming up with such a good design in a day- it took me all week to come up with mine ! lol!

  3. oh that is an amazing card Sheila. You are clever!

  4. Well you know I'm just going to love this... Amazingly Stunning!!!! What a clever take on the dare Sheila..those stamps are Gorgeous!!!...

  5. Beatutiful Sheila, what a great impact all those faces and colours make, fantastic :)

  6. Sheila, this is just so fab, I love this retro arty colour block look - is it Andy Warhol that did loads of this sort of stuff?
    Anyway, it's stunning, not just for the stamping but the "movement" you've got with all the random angles. I could have thought about this dare for a year and not come up with anything half as good as this.

  7. wow! this is just fab. It is such an amazing card :)

    jo xx

  8. I think this is a very novel idea to use imagery. It lends itself to the 20's 7 the film industry adverts.

  9. What a fantastic card! Love the design, it's very graphic design but arty too, really clever wish I could do it! xx Leo
