I hope you are looking forward to pleasant things this weekend. This morning I am off to see the house that my son and his girlfriend are hoping to buy - such an exciting thing to buy your first house!
I'm still following along with the Online Card Class when I can, and today I have a card to share from Day 9. Jennifer demonstrated a card using muti-coloured stamping of flower stamps, so I delved into my stash to see what I had. I found a pretty stamp set called The Sweet Life from PTI and came up with this card.
What I learned
Using a background stamp like this is very new to me, but I like the result and will be trying it again. I do think it needs a paler ink though and I did not have one in my stash. I would usually just use 2nd generation ink but this wasn't easy with a large stamp.
You can take scissors and modify die cuts such as the Clip Tip one, and the Craft Police don't jump out to arrest you!
I didn't have enough pink card left to make a mat so I cut a square,from it, cut the square on the diagonal, and tucked it under the left hand corners - a little like photo corners and I like the effect.
Mixing stamp sets and manufacturers is great fun.
I'd like to enter this into the following challenges
Pals Paper Arts - use pink, green and black
Milk Coffee Challenge - use stripes.
In the Pink Challenge - Anything Goes.
Thanks for stopping by.
