It’s not too often I use just one flower stamp to create a design. A few years ago when I first started stamping, this would have been much more common. I love the idea of going back and creating simple designs. Or maybe…not so simple but with a limitation of earlier days when you had a limited supply list to work from. I love how it stretches your creativity to use stamps and products in new ways. Sometimes I think we lose that. That is what the Limited Supply Challenge is all about. I’m loving today’s challenge…to use a single flower stamp and a single sentiment if desired. No patterned paper, no Cuttlebug. I went a step further and limited myself to a single color of cardstock, using just three layers. Check out the challenge at LSC157 if you’d like to play along! :0
For this design, I simply stamped my flower image multiple times in Lettuce Adirondack ink. This flower is from the Kim Hughes Silhouette Blooms 1 set from Cornish Heritage Farms. After stamping…I dotted my blooms with Liquid Applique and then gently heated with my heat gun. I then lightly sponged on rose colored chalks from my Pebbles chalk set. Very easy and very much like spring.
To define my edges, I distressed and stitched them for added interest. The Friend sentiment on this design comes from the Silhouette Blooms 2 set also by Kim. To play up the textural elements of this design, I added a strip of soft green May Arts ribbon and a moss velvet brad from Making Memories.
Thanks for stopping by…again! ….today. I certainly did not plan on blogging again but just couldn’t resist this challenge!
