clean & simple sunday #37

This week, I was inspired by the cooler Spring temps and pulled out some blue and green from my scrap bin…

This card features the Sunny Side of Life stamp set from A Muse|Studio. The colors of card stock are fern, sage and bermuda. The technique of stamping on strips of card stock that are placed adjacent to one another and using a black ink pad, in this case, my Momento Black, is a little trickier than it might seem. There are times when I have carried out this “technique” with no trouble at all, but for some reason I struggled with this one. It’s not perfect by any means, but I hope that the idea of laying together three strips of colored card stock and stamping your image in black is something you might try sometime in your own stamping. Its fun, a great way to use up those smaller scraps of color and the resulting image can be stunning… no embellishments needed! 🙂
