Sloshing and Scribbling


I really enjoyed one of the classes on today's Stretch Your Stamps 2.  You know how much I love sloshing outside the lines, right?  Well, this is the opposite.  Squidgy-stamp, then scribble your own outlines.  Oh, the freedom!!


I've used Waltzingmouse stamps so I'm entering into the Waltzingmouse Fanatics challenge, Make Your Mark.  They're not getting many participants in their challenges, despite all their efforts to encourage people to play, so if you do have Waltzingmouse stamps, please support Deborah's and Tara's efforts by playing along.  Actually, there are free digis available - you don't even need to own their physical stamps to play along - how easy is that?


I've used the colour from ColourQ:

(I did the colours from memory so my Coastal Cabana equivalent is slightly bluer.)

I thought it would make a lovely wedding card, so I'm entering it into The Card Concept - Clean(ish) and Layered.

  39. Hey there stranger! First of all, a big old sorry for being MIA this past month, but real life has totally taken over my time!!!

    But I see that you are still creating amazing projects! And yet again, your hand doodled flowers have me swooning (and so envious of your scribble talent). And yes - 'cleanish and layered' is exactly the right call!

    Our house 'flipping' endeavor continues with a wee glimpse of the finish line coming into view! Will be back to visiting once the work is done :)
