June Waltzingmouse Blog Waltz
Yeah, second post today & having made my quiche I had time for a quick card & boy do I mean quick!
I was playing with one of my new sets of stamps - Offbeat backgrounds, and a chocolate coloured dye based ink pad & just loved the effect. the ink from dye based pads tends to pool on large areas of acrylic stamps and so you get a mottled effect, which is just beautiful if you want a slightly more 'used' look. Anyway, I stamped on a spare bit of paper to see how it came out, loved what it looked like & this card idea popped into my head straight away - 10 minutes later and the idea in my head was on a card. Yes I know its a very basic card, but I just love the way it looks and even though it's a romantic sentiment, I don't think any man would think it was too 'girly'. Oh, and I did cut away the bottom of the card so it zig zags (just for a little bit of detail).
Well, I only have 4 sets of Claire's stamps, but I sooo need more - will have to wait for the end of the month again though (sigh!)
Happy Waltzing all!!!!
