On a stamping roll this morning 🙂
This time I took on the latest CAS Colours & Sketches challenge (#117) – a sketch…and a great one at that (very versatile/classic).
Part of the reason I have trouble stamping is that I don’t know what to do with my cards. I’ve joined groups where you send them to other folks in the group, but that gets old quick (not sure why). Now that I work, I’m thinking I might start taking my cards in (not for sale, but maybe some commissions will come of it). I like that idea because then I can do whatever sort of cards I want…and if I get artsy and no one wants it, no big deal.
Anyway. This was a very quick & easy card. I don’t know why I went in this direction (masculine and sympathy/thinking of you) – though I think the lack of restriction in my own stamping agenda left the theme open and I haven’t done masculine in a long time. Honestly, though, this doesn’t have to be a masculine card, it really can be for anyone.
Since Papertrey has basically stopped putting out new colors, I’ve been on a mission to find some more colors to fill in what I have. I’ve been trying My Favorite Things and Simon Says Stamp (because they do paper as well as ink…and that is important to me). This card uses an MFT color – Sour Apple…and I *love* the color! I will say, the paper for MFT Sour Apple and SSS Green Apple are almost identical, so I might try the SSS ink to see how they compare.
Thanks for taking a peek!
