Welcome back! I can barely navigate my stamp room, seeing as how it's a wreck from the re-do, but I was so intrigued by Marcella's "Coloring Outside the Lines" challenge at Power Poppy I had to do something. So I cleared a 6" space, stamped on a panel that was already cut to size, then sat down in the dining room with 5 Copics for coloring. I used the Prairie Cheer clear stamp set with Asters and the wise words of a master wordsmith.
I emphasize the "Coloring Outside the Lines". It's the only way I could eke out the time to get a card done and, gosh, is it ever some quick coloring! A single haphazard stroke of B23 in the general vicinity of each petal, followed by a shorter stroke of B26. The green is G20 and YG95, though I needn't have bothered with the G20, I guess.
The paper is scraps of old Chatterbox which was left laying out after I organized my designer papers. I did the cutting on the floor and stitched at my sewing machine out in the hallway. That's when you know you've got it bad if you'll go to such lengths just to do a little stamping.
Oh, and you know I'm all about using up the ribbon since I purged and reorganized, so that wad of fluff you see is actually a bow. It was not easy to tie with all that fuzz going every which way. Remember fun fibers? I decided to keep them. These, perhaps, are not technically ribbon, but I'm lumping all trims into that category.
Do you see where I colored outside the lines? Funny how I ordinarily try so hard to stay within the lines, yet when I allowed myself the freedom to color outside the lines I had to make a conscious effort to do so.
Have a good weekend!
