Hello blogger friends!
Earlier today, I posted yesterday's card using a background stamp in a different way. Today's class was about using collage stamps. I'm a fan of the clean & simple style of card making so the idea of using a busy collage wasn't my favorite idea. But what's the point of taking a class and NOT participating in every challenge?!?
My discomfort with collage stamps was so severe, that I hadn't even LOOKED at them in the craft stores, as a matter of fact, they were invisible to me until I saw one on the supply list for the class. So when choosing one, I decided to go smaller than the normal background size. I was drawn to the Inkadinkado Time Flies stamp, so I brought it home.
Using a card layout similar to one I saw in class, I came up with this:
The whole time I was making this card, I was unsure if I liked it or not...it wasn't until attaching the sentiment strip that I fell in love.
I really like the colorful butterflies against the b/w of the rest of the card!
I fell a little deeper in love after adding a little sparkle with my Sakura clear stardust pen.
(Here's my attempt at capturing the sparkle on camera)
Well folks, that's all for now.
Hope you enjoyed your visit...thanks for stopping by!
Please join/comment...I read EVERY comment and appreciate them all.
UPDATE: I just realized that this card qualifies for the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #60.
See, there's ANOTHER reason for me to love collage stamps!
