I am pleased to tell you that I have
finally given non-woodmounted stamps a go
and what a discovery that has been.
I very recently purchased a couple Stampavie images,
and to say that I am impressed is an understatement.
I know you avid stampers are wondering
if I live on the moon or something,
just discovering and embracing this company,
but what can I say,
thrilled to be on board.
So I have been toying around with one of the stamps,
Rachel Anne Miller's Teddy's Travels
and this is what I've come up with:
I've played along with the Stampavie Challenge
which was a recipe:
And I gotta tell ya, I am not loving my embossing.
Not to snivel, but it's just not bringing anything to my card.
I started to tear it up, was gonna replace it,
stick something over the top,
add a zillion pearls to make it pretty,
but I decided that there must be some reason
I went for that pattern at the time,
didn't want to ruin all the other components
of the project and will just have to hope it grows on me.
I wanted to stick to the recipe,
no vanilla extract or cinnamon, just the recipe.
Squabbling aside, I had a lot of fun colouring Lily,
and can see that growing as a crafter with these images
will be a lot of fun.
It is my first go at Lily, so I should stop
beating myself up, total cuteness will come in time.
Just sharing the journey.
Thanks for looking,
