Right now my workflow is off due to summer break and sharing my work area with the kids. So, I thought I had done a better job of replicating the sketch until I was able to get back to my computer and look at it. The picture in my head wasn’t quite the same I guess, I turned the fade the wrong way and moved the sentiment. Ah phooey.
New stamps! It is always so much fun to get new stuff to be creative with. Yesterday I just couldn’t help myself I needed to make a card right away with this stamp set. I love all of the swirly designs and this one is just so fun and pretty.
For some reason, this sketch kept eluding me on what to do with it. This is why I am so glad that I have worked so hard to organize different things nicely. I decided that I should take a look through my file of cut paper items and there it was! I had fun playing with the thought of making the card a ‘secret garden’ by making it extremely floral, but not at first glance…
Playing with stencils! I have had a couple of things recently that have pushed me towards pulling things out and playing with stencils. I really need to get some more, I am sure I will soon.
This book is one I haven’t actually read. I do however have it on my to check out list right now since it also works for the reading challenge that I am working on right now. I tried to focus on the cover for the inspiration for this card. I actually made the card twice since I didn’t like how the white turned out on the first card and had to go buy a new white stamp pad.
