The Mid Winter Blues


We woke up to 3 more inches of snow today. Our backyard is never going to melt and my dog continues to drag her belly through the snow and cause an avalanche to cascade onto my kitchen floor everytime she returns from the vast white wasteland that lurks outside the door.
Finally we all seem to be feeling better and I was able to sit down and stamp today. I completed another sketch challenge at SCS and I wasn't sure I'd be able to pull this one off. There aren't many layers at all and I thought it would be too bare, but I am happy with the results.
I am not sure which card I like more, the one with ribbon or the brads, but I'm leaning toward the brads. Both cards use Bashful blue, Confetti white and Certainly celery cardstock. The stamp set is one of my favorite new ones called Doodle This. I can't wait to be able to use it in workshops and classes.
I stamped the flower image on with Jet Black Stazon and then used my AquaPainter to color the image in with Bashful Blue and So Saffron. I then smudged some Bashful blue ink onto the cardstock with a sponge.
I cut the tabs out with my Round Tab Punch and on one card I tied Ivory Grosgrain ribbon around the top layer. On the other I used my 1/16 hole punch and vintage brads.
I am just happy to be stamping again!
