July 15, 2015 Just for You


What a fun Saturday at the RubberStamp Expo in Collinsville.  Saw lots of friends, took lots of pictures, came home with lots of new and creative ideas, and lots LESS $$$.  This is just one of the stamps I bought - Ocean Grass by Creative Vision.  I thought this stamp looked so serene and peaceful and I saw lots of possibilities for using it.  I sponged distress on my w hite cs, stamped my image then took AMuse gold splash and just flicked on some gold for added interest.  It doesn't show up much but I did the same on the doily.  Had to add a touch of bling so added the brown, and tan pearls.  This card is off in the mail tomorrow.  Challenges:
     Sketch Saturday - follow sketch
     Crafty Sentiments Design - anything goes
     Crafting from the Heart - anything goes
     Use your stuff - anything goes - used pearls and doily that I have had for a while

You chose a great stamp! I can see how it will be very versatile - you'll be able to use it for all kinds of cards. Your pastel colors really add to the serenity of this image. Pretty!
