These past couple of weeks I have been struggling with my creative mojo. I'm not sure where it went but I'm determined to find it!! I just can't seem to please myself with any of my creations. Whether it's colouring or layouts, it's been kind of tough.
So, I pulled out a new stamp/die set from Honey Bee Stamps. I used the Not Too Shabby stamp and die bundle, which happens to be on sale this month!! It's a super sweet set.
REWIND: I should mention that I started with a different stamp. I thought I would use the To You With Love set from Clearly Besotted. I started to colour the image with my Derwent ColourSoft Pencils...I just wasn't feeling it...
BACK TO THE PRESENT: I started by creating a background panel with white cardstock cut with Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles. Then I took out some white embossing paste. I thought the lid would be stuck on since I haven't used it in a VERY LONG TIME!! I used a small triangle stencil to add a bit of dimension to one side of the panel. To spruce it up a bit, I sprinkled some fine iridescent glitter over the paste while it was still wet.
I stamped and die cut the bouquet image and coloured it with alcohol markers. I also stamped, coloured and die cut the small wreath and bow image. I placed everything in the bottom right corner of my white, embossed panel.
And in true Laurie fashion, I didn't think about the sentiment. This set has very small sentiment so that worked in my favour. I die cut a circle that would fit the sentiment, but it just blended into the background. So I die cut another one out of kraft cardstock and layered them together to make it stand out a bit better.
Here is the final result:
A fairly clean and simple design and I'm happy with the way it turned out. Hopefully, I can keep this going, hahaha!
Thank you so much for stopping by today, its SO appreciated :)
