Not that I need new stamps (with the number that I have in my craft area) but this set has been on my wishlist for a long time. Hmmm, that would be an interesting survey to conduct – how many stamp sets do I own and how many have I actually used. I probably don’t want know! 🙂 However, challenging myself to use the unused stamps in my collection would be a good goal – I’ll have to think about this. I may revisit this in a later post though if the number of stamps in my collection is crazy high, I may not want admit to it. Anyways, I digress…
I struggled with the sketch in yesterday’s post so I decided to look for another one to try. I chose this week’s Splitcoast Card Sketch 406.
It was much easier for me to create a card using this sketch. I don’t think that I do well with cluttered sketches – though it is good to push oneself outside of their comfort zone. Here is my card for SC406:
I stamped the solid leaves using the rock n’ roll technique – first I inked them using More Mustard and then rolled the stamp around on its edges on the Cajun Craze. Just before stamping them on the paper, I gave them a light mist of water and followed this with the outline stamps in Early Espresso. What a great stamp set this is! I didn’t bother lining up the images with my stamp-a-ma-jig this time – a first for me! It works in this case, I think that having them slightly offset adds to the overall effect.
