I had received the Oh So Eclectic stamp set from the Prize Patrol at OnStage, and I was a little intimidated to use it. They had demonstrated using watercolor paper and spritzing, and I was just not into doing that, so I put it aside to experiment with later. I think a lot of other people did the same, because I have not seen anyone creating anything with this stamp set and posting it with all the sneak peeks we are seeing. So, when I got time to play in my little craft palace this weekend, I was determined to create something with my Oh So Eclectic stamps. I looked for a layout that would inspire, and found one at Freshly Made Sketches 285. Then I came across the Paper Player's Tic Tac Toe Challenge, and I chose the circle, die cut, and flower for my challenge. SU Only Challenge is for Oh So Feminine, and what could be more feminine than flowers and lace? So, I was set to create.
In looking for ideas, I did come across a blog that discussed the idea of 3 generation stamping with this kind of stamps, and so I experimented a little with this, and I love the results. I first stamped my flower outline in Memento black, then I stamped the flower background with Berry Burst once, twice and a third time. Love the results, so I did the same with the leaves in Lemon Lime Twist. The flower kind of reminded me of the flower from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlets so I used that for my die cut cut from Powder Pink. Don't you love these new In Colors? I painted over the flower with Wink of Stella, although it would not show it in my photos. So, for a little more bling I added a new embellishment, Clear Faceted Gems. I decided the card needed just a little something more, so I stamped the background with Berry Burst tone on tone. Love It!!
I hope you love it, too. I think I will make this card for a swap that I am in. Sorry girls for posting it before I mail them to you, which I never do. Come back and see what else I created this weekend.
