this might be my all-time favorite challenge at shopping our stash. this week we're asking the musical question, "you stamped with *WHAT*?" and you may already have guessed that we want to see you "stamp" with items not generally intended for stamping. need some examples? ok, how about bubble wrap, corks, sponge or potato-carved shapes, painted leaves or branches, cardboard tubes, and... just for good measure... it turns out there's a whole category of stamping with veggies that i never, ever, even knew existed, which is actually pretty cool! but here's my card and let's see if you can guess what i stamped with:
i had a few lids of jars out, and some other small-circles and had decided to watercolor some super-loose flowers with some new shades of colorburst (especially fuchsia and tangerine!) and then add the circles as centers and accents. but then, when i really looked at the little plastic bottles the colorbursts come in, it occurred to me that the elongated oval would make BRILLIANT petals! i stand by that decision, btw! :)
i was inspired by both halves of the current fusion card challenge, though admittedly, my card morphed a bit away from the inspiration board. but this is the thing that totally got me started, for which i am thankful!
