Still in the right week, but three days late... This challenge was to make a wreath card, I've bought a couple of sets of stamps from the Rubber Stamp Tapestry range - this one is Shell Border SAQ00001. It has 6 separate stamps, 3 large shells, a seaweed and 2 small shells. I'm not too convinced by the colour ways, but it turns out I don't have quite the range of stamps pads I thought I did.... Serves me right for trying out new colour ways!
Anyway, this is a great opportunity to use this set (which I've had for a couple of months) and whilst I think I could have done with a bit more practising to get them pointed in a less random direction, I really enjoyed it.
I used the circles from Fiskars circles template and stamped inside them so that I didn't have to draw a circle and rub it out again. But it took a couple of attempts and increasing circle sizes and looking at it in the mirror upside down to get it looking balanced - like Topsy, it just growed!
PS I am ridiculously thrilled to have won one of the Top Trio Card of the Week Blinkie Prize for this one. How exciting! and unexpected.... Maybe I should do more cards on the right day after all, na, it's a once in a lifetime experience I think!
