...do you remember when I first had a go at creating cards with my own little designs? This was the first drawing I did way back in May 2010 (you can see my original post here).
Well, finally I had this one made into a stamp in varying sizes. It is a slightly different design to the one above, but I suppose that's the thing with original stuff, every sketch is unique.
And here it is all stamped up. I chose turqouise and green ink and randomly stamped each stem. I have to admit, I like the overall effect.
A few of the stems are quite long so I was over the moon when I found these Papermania acrylic blocks with grid lines. You see I am actually the queen of wonky stamping...don't let my final blog creations fool you...by then I have usually bodged several versions with my wonky stamping.
The lovely sentiment is by Hero Arts from the "Live Life"poly clear set. I've used Versafine ink in Imperial purple.
The beautiful reversible satin ribbon is from Crafts U Love.
Again the grid blocks make it easy for lining up sentiments as well.
And finally, right in the middle of my photo shoot, Jasmine decided to muscle in...honestly any opportunity to pose...
Well, I'm glad I had this design made into a stamp. Although I have rough idea of how I want my designs to look, I never really know how they will translate as a stamp so it's always a bit of a surprise when I actually stamp the design for the first time. I'm quite pleased with this one and hope you like it too.
