I'm still in my creative funk, but made myself stamp something tonight. Susan's OLW7 challenge this week was really a test for me. I almost never use all those little stamps that come in sets. I'm all about the main image and coloring, so it was really a challenge for me to use an accessory stamp as my focal point. The challenge was repetition, and although I could have stamped a main flower image repeatedly (tried it and it didn't work), I went for the little stamp.
Even though this was forced, I like the way it turned out. I used the CM curvy cutter thingy as a template and drew a light pencil line where I wanted the images to go. Then I curved the sentiment on my stamping block to match. I added a little Sakura gelly roll pen for a little sparkle.
Stamps - hello again, Inkadinkado sentiment
Paper - GKD PL white
Ink - regal rose, Pacific point, summer sun, wasabi, Memento black
Accessories - Sakura gelly roll pen (clear star), CM curvy cutter thingy
Can you believe I didn't use my SAMJ? I can't remember the last time I didn't use it!
This was truly a challenge for me, and now I must go to bed before my head explodes from thinking too much!
