I just love this Sunny Day Paper Collection by Heartfelt Creations. I used a simple layout and treated all the pieces with machine stitching and ink.
This sentiment is from Inspire Me Sentiments. I used Archival black ink on Kraft.
These two little brads are oldies from Kaisercraft.
Once I choose the stamp I want to work with, I immediately choose the paper collection I'm going to use to make the card. That way, I'm not wasting time looking for paper to match my colored piece. I always lay the stamped piece right on top of the patterned paper and color to match. These are the pencils I used on the watering can. The Light Umber is for the shading on the "floor."
One of my New Year's resolutions is to color and new stamp every month. I've never used this one before and it looked simple enough to color in the small amount of time I had to finish this card. Unfortunately, this beauty is retired. In fact, I purchased it as rubber only- no cling or wood block. I hope this stamp makes a comeback in a future collection! I used Wild Honey Distress Ink on the edges.
Thanks for stopping by!
