Sometimes when you least expect it, a stamp set, (or two) can
spark your imagination and become an instant favorite!
Denim & Suede…it’s always fun when the unexpected happens,
don’t you think?
We all have our favorite “must haves” when we see a new catalog,
but there’s always those few stamp sets that we think, eh…I’m not
sure I would use that, am I right?
Well, for me one of those sets was Country Livin’. I had it on order
for a workshop where the hostess had asked for a Father’s Day project.
When the workshop was cancelled, I toyed with idea of removing from
the order, but at the last minute I decided to keep it.
When the order arrived and I opened my big box of goodies (you can
see my very first video of this over on my Facebook page…scary huh!),
I was surprised that this set was the first one to speak to me…pick me,
pick me it said…so I did, and the minute I inked up those boots the
whole project came to life in front of me…I love it when that happens!
Some of the reasons this card works are in the details.
The splatter (Touches Of Texture) is “stamped off” before making the
background, that way when you stamp the flower in full ink over the top,
it appears to have more depth.
The boots are inked in Soft Suede using an Aqua Painter, and by
coloring the straps blue, the boots come to life…and it pulls all the
denim elements together.
For added texture the new Burlap Ribbon is rubbed with Soft Suede ink
and allowed to peak out to the edge of the card, with rhinestones adding
a final touch to the boot and the flower
You’ve probably noticed that there is no greeting… it’s okay to have a
card without one, it leaves the possibilities wide open. So, go ahead,
just write on the inside…or add your greeting at a moments notice for
whatever occasion you choose.
On the envelope…Touches Of Texture in Dapper Denim…
it’s also runs up the side of the card, a great compliment to those boots!
So, just to be clear…
Am I the only crazy person who thinks stamps “speak” to me?
