I am having some fun this month with Serendipity Stamps Challenge #48. The Challenge is to use your newest / never-before used things to create a card, using at least one SS item.
I recently acquired this beautiful SS dandelion stamp, and this sentiment. The plant has a real vintage quality, and I can imagine it stamped on natural linen tea-towels, napkins, etc… Anyway, before I get too carried away, here is my card:
I stamped the dandelion image twice across the base of the card, off the edges. I initially thought I would water-colour it, but I so liked the crisp detail, that I chose to leave it uncoloured, save for the daisy, which I ‘spotlit’, using a simple circle stamp.
I am linking this card to this fortnight’s TimeOut Challenge Inspired by Words: Autumn…the year’s last loveliest smile.
Here is another version of the same layout, which shows off a bit more of the intricate detail of the stamp, and is only one-layer.
Both very CAS. Which do you prefer?
I am linking the second card to LIM#245: One Layer Autumn Challenge
