So, yes... I am addicted to stamps. I really love to use lots of techniques and want to keep learning, but have to admit stamps are so cool, aren't they?
Anyways, today I'm sharing a card, just because I made it. No particular reason. Just sharing.
This brings to my mind a reminder of a fact that we learn by sharing. I've always said that because those who think know more than others and are afraid to share because they want to keep knowledge to themselves, end up bad. I've seen it through my whole life. But apart from that profound message (LOL) I really think that sharing our projects and viewing others is where inspiration resides. We always learn from each other. It might be simple and bland to some, but interesting and new to other some.
So this is a card I made. I love it. :)
I started with an orange base which I sprayed a little on the borders for an irregular color background.
Then I placed a piece of patterned paper which I distressed a little.
Place this tag with dimensional adhesives. I made the tag by cuting the shape on patterned paper, stamping the image on it and coloring directly to the patterned paper. Really. On purpose. I knew the dots wouldn't be covered. Why would I want to cover those beautiful dots? We always think the stamped and colored images have to sharp and clean and over white and beautifully painted. And that's cool, but sometimes I just want my image over a colorful background and more.
Then I added a bow.
And then, I stamped a sentiment with stazon ink over a piece of acetate. I wanted to include the message over the image but not stamping it over the image directly. This looks subtle, like it was delicately said or whispered to the girl in the image.
And this is it. You like it?
I'm sharing this with Addicted to Stamps Challenge blog for the challenge #155. They have a photo inspiration for the challenge and I loved the color combo, and that's what I've got inspired from. You can see it HERE.
I will also share on next Friday's Unity Friends with Flair linky. So leave a message for a chance to win with Unity Stamp Co.
See ya' later.
