Recently I ordered some stamps from Ellen Hutson (affiliate links used below) – and they had them to me in 2 days. How quick is that? To start with I stamped in black archival ink various images all over a piece of watercolor paper. Then I pulled out my clean color pens and got to work! The goal here is to have fun – NOT to worry about finalized projects or anything else.
Once done, if any stood out I cut the paper they were on out in a shape, and made a card!
Totally simple way to get a few more cards for my stash, as well as a pressure-free way to create. The stamp used here is by Flora & Fauna- love them! I love doing this technique with new stamp sets because:
- inevitably a few will turn out ugly (more on that in another post next week!)
- There is no pressure
- I can focus on techniques and play
- If things turn out well it is easy to convert into cards
My formula is just to stitch & mount the white paper onto paper(s) I think look good. No embellishing, no fuss, no worries!
I am working out a date to go and crop at a local shop – I haven’t gone and done that in ages mostly because I am the slowest crop packer (I want to take it all!) – but I’m going to try and pack my bags and try a crop some day soon. What are you up to in your world? I always love hearing about your creative (and not so creative) adventures. Feel free to share!
