Hey there, everyone!
I had lots of fun today, playing along in the Hero Arts Flickr group's, 90-Minute Scramble! Karen was the host, and she did a wonderful job! She gave us the theme of stamping on patterned paper. This is something I don't do often enough, so that made it even more fun!
During the first half an hour, I had stamped the Hydrangea stamp onto two different pieces of patterned paper. I left one uncolored and colored the other. I ended up thinking both looked just awful, so I had to re-think the whole thing! Now I only had an hour. . . .
Here's what I finally ended up creating.
The Tea Flower was stamped and embossed on vellum, quickly colored and cut out. I stamped the True Friends background onto the glittery-dotted Doodlebug Design paper, using Tattered Rose distress ink. Then I just glued down the flower, stamped the sentiment and added that. Whew! You should have seen my desk at this point!
I realized I had a little time left and saw some cute Studio Calico paper on my desk, so I reached for a Hero Arts "Hi" and stamped it onto all the circles. Then added some string and a black pearl and that was it.
What started out to be a stamping disaster, ended up okay in the end. I always enjoy these scrambles!
Please stop back on Monday for a really fun and happy surprise, that you will ALL love! Thanks for your visit - it's always appreciated! :)
