This week is just zipping by because I'm busy getting my son ready for college. I promised to not get all misty when I see him off this weekend, but I'm excited for this next big step in his life.
I've been in a bit of a creative slump and decided I would just CASE ideas until my own returned, starting with the weekly Muse challenge card, provided by Therese Calvird:
All of that pink scared me, but I pushed myself to copy her colors and style using the SSS Everything Flowers set. I stamped Colorbox Frost White as the bottom layer of each flower and then used Hero Arts black for the black circles. Here's my version:
I masked the flowers to stamp the leaves, which I haven't done in a while and found it was loads of fun! The sentiment is from Impression Obsession - Anytime Sentiments. Now that I'm finished, I love the vibrant colors! I hope you get a chance to play over at Muse too!
My next two cards are part of the Stretch your stamps 2 class homework. I used the Avery Elle rounded diamond set to make graphic backgrounds. I did a lot of stamping and experimenting to create these two cards:
The ribbon was the inspiration for my stamped colors. I'm enjoying this class so much, even though I'm waaay behind. I do come back later to the class lessons and make cards, so it's all good.
Thanks for stopping by!
