And...getting in to stamping again

When my mojo/mood/creative ability GOES...it GOES bad...and for a long time. Then it takes a lot of work to get it back. KWIM? I work hard to be creative...and when I sit down & there is nothing in my mind I want to cry! I have all these toys & want to play damn it! So...I MADE myself sit & sit till something came to me! And by golly...it came tonight...in a plethora of unique ideas! Really...I impressed my little self. I was motivated by selling 8 cards @ work today...every little bit counts! I was sore from loading mulch in the yard....moving furniture for carpet cleaner...so I was forced into my creative space and took full advantage.
!

This card was using the waterbrush. I tore a piece of paper, put it down & water brushed blues over it..then peeled torn piece off to reveal white jagged edge. Where I stamped. I used liquid glass on vases to look like they are GLASS...and coloring pencils for flowers. I really, really like how the simple part of this card came out. there are no brads, no layers, no paper...just white daisy & Ink!

THis one again uses the SOLO Y! I have a client who ordered 2 and needs to sell one y! I told her if I use it I bet I can sell it to someone for her!! I stamped circles from diff. solo stamps, watercolored paper with kiwi. I stamped in kiwi, mounted on white, bubblegum (who ever uses that color). And stamped OU with chalk ink petals on vellum (lord I wish we carried these). I tied some string on Y...kinda cute.

Ok this one was JUST FUN...used squares from solos....and made a off kilter pattern. whtie ink to soften some boxes, white gel pen to trace, and pop dots on flowers, brads, kinda bright


really liked this one, showed how you can stamp on paper, with interesting designes & used a tag too.




a couple thanks a latte cards...nothing fancy here, colors are showing way off...they are much brighter in real life.





and here is a random elephant one...
