Today I stumbled upon another challenge blog called CAS on Sunday, so I figured I'd give it a whirl.
The theme is "umbrella" and my first thought was uh-oh! Do I even have an umbrella stamp? After digging through my entire stamp collection (which took a very long time), I managed to come up with 3 umbrella images. They weren't exactly what I had in mind, but you gotta work with what you got! I'm pretty sure I stamped those umbrella images every which way possible and with every colour under the sun and I couldn't pull off anything I was remotely happy with. I think my problem was I was trying out different techniques and expecting something fabulous to come of the first try...yeah, right 😑 So after making a mess, I went back to tried and true which lately for me seems to be one layer cards.
A simple white card base with a little paper piecing, stamped sentiments and a hand doodled border. It doesn't get much simpler than that!
Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a great creative day!
