I have the results of much messed up stamping on my desk at the moment. Another challenge will be to recycle them into finished cards. Where there is a will there is a way.
This is the final - unsmudged and (almost) correctly stamped - article made for ONE LAYER WEDNESDAY 110 challenge being hosted this week by Heather Telford.
The challenge was to use SQUARES in the design. I spent most of last night searching through my stamp collection looking for inspiration. I finally decided that I would use a foam alphabet stamp set. Of course I found it impossible to use the stamps individually and get them positioned in a straight line. I eventually used double-sided tape to stick them to an acrylic block so that I could stamp them all at once. I remembered while doing this that I had used this method with these same stamps but in a square design
last Christmas. Not a case of "Great minds think alike" but rather that of "One mind thinks twice"!!
From here, I used red and green Promarkers and a gold pen to colour. To be honest I did get as far as this with a previous card but I failed at the last hurdle because I stamped the sentiment at the bottom of the card. It just didn't look right. Will need to go back and find one of Susan's posts about positioning.
