Seriously

Monday, July 27, 2015

I popped into my stamp room Saturday night to make a card using the fabbo color combo at Color Throwdown and the layout at CAS(E) This Sketch.  I love the bokeh images on the sketch and dug out a favorite dotted stamp set from PTI set to use for my images, plus I got some new goodies from Lil' Inker that I wanted to try out.



The card was done, and I was just getting ready to get it set up to take a pic of it when I decided to stamp the back of it with a fun sentiment.  The card was laying face up on my desk and I lost my handle on the ink pad and I'm sure you can guess what happened.  This.


Yep.  I dropped the ink pad on it and left a big old smudge.  But all things happen for a reason and I actually like my redux better.  I stamped the dots in a bit of a tighter circle, which I like better than the first.  I think karma was doing me a favor in this case!

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Dot Spot (Papertrey Ink); Seriously Awesome (Lil' Inker Designs)
Paper:  White (Spectrum Noir); Basic Black (SU)
Ink:  Bermuda Bay, Going Gray, Basic Gray (SU); Simply Chartreuse (Papertrey Ink)
Accessories:  Seriously Word die (Lil' Inker Designs)

Oh Lord, I would have been crying if I'd dropped an ink pad on such a great design, but glad it worked out for you to redo it. I'm SURE the original was just as fantastic! Thanks for joining us for the Color Throwdown.

Oh my Jen! I know how you must have felt, that has happened to me (more times than I can remember) . . . I've always been clumsy! I don't know what your first one was like, but the finished one is awesome! Love your interpretation of the sketch! Have a great week! Hazel xx
