LOVED Day 9!

I had so much fun creating a card for day 9 of Stretch Your Stamps class!

We were shown different ways to use outline stamps. I just wish I had more time to try all the awesome ideas shown in class!

Of course I chose a floral outline stamp. BUT - normally, with my usual style, I would stamp and color it. This time I used lots of pretty patterned paper, from two different Echo Park paper pads, and some cute dotty paper from A-Muse. I love the way it turned out - especially because it's my favorite color combo!



And here's a close-up of the white embossed, Hand Drawn Flower, from Hero Arts.


Tonight, I'm working on my homework for day 10, and really enjoying this lesson too!

Have a great weekend! :)

I adore the way you layered the flower...I have to admit to Day 9 being really hard for me...I only have a couple of outline stamps as coloring scares me :) Love your gorgeous pink and green beauty!

Those are perfect stamps for that technique, and your card turned out gorgeous!! That's got to be one of my favorite color combinations too, so fresh and feminine.
