I got my new quilt print stamps by WPlus9 yesterday and thought this card would be a good way to try it out. I've seen some beautiful cards done with this stamp and with a positive attitude I began. I picked a lovely shade of pale yellow knowing that a dark color would show up fine. Then using dark brown I stamped the first line of the image. Perfect! Oh, wow, I CAN do this. The second line stamped beautifully, too. And the third. Then it was time for the sentiment. I know, I know. I should have off stamped it first to make sure it was good but did I? No. And it was fuzzy when I stamped the card. (Enter a growl here.) I turned it over and began again. Six times I tried to stamp the quilt pattern and each time some part of it didn't come out correctly. (Enter an anquished scream.)
Now what? The deadline is nearing and I've mentally committed myself to making a OLC. No wise cracks, please about the mentally committed statement. ;) In a last ditch effort, I pulled out another stamp, plopped it on a piece of pale aqua paper and added a sentiment.
Thanks for stopping by and listening to my woes. I hope you have a wonderfully creative day.
