It is odd for me to find myself stamping….not that I don’t enjoy it….but I just don’t do it often. We all have our certain techniques we gravitate toward right??? Like I am not for the embossing. Weird….Maybe because there are too many patterned papers I want to use. Anyhoo…I have A LOT OF STAMPS for someone who does not stamp often…so I’ve made it my goal to use them more.
The stamped element is the clock in the middle. I started with my Peachy Keen Polka Dot Background stamp…and added the pink dots…then added a scalloped center working in the pink still. Then switched to chocolate brown and added the clock face and hands. Then I used my 2 1/2 inch circle punch and cropped it out…then I gave the whole thing a good working over with Gathered Twig Distress Ink paying particular attention to the edge. I kinda love how it turned out : ) the flowers are stamped and trimmed and inked and layered…then topped off with pretty pearly accent.
Poofy bow of Pink Wrinkle Ribbon and Pink Gingham, topped of with Bakers Twine and vintage button.
That’s it for stamped project #1…..I’ve got more tags ready to share on another day .
I hope you all enjoy a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative : ) G
