One of the lovely parts of Leadership at Convention is receiving a special gift in the form of a new stamp set. This year, we received the Awesomely Artistic set, which has lots of great stamps in it.
My friend, Jess, has been experimenting lately with doing different backgrounds and she has inspired me to give it a go too.
I started with a piece of watercolour paper, then inked up my stamp with Mossy Meadow and gave it a spritz with some water directly onto the stamp. I then bravely stamped it onto the card. Phew, one stamp down!!
I continued on with the other stamps in the set. It’s a scary process!!! But I think I’m happy with the end result. I was a bit impatient to wait for it to dry so I used my heat gun to speed up the process.
I cut a piece of the burlap trim to remove the stitching and layered it with a piece of the lace trim. Doesn’t it look pretty!! I even hand cut out the dragonfly!! I didn’t cut out the label though as it perfectly matches the Project Life Cards and Labels framelits.
I hope you like it!!
Here’s a close up.
