I had stamped up a couple of copies of the Lovely Bubbly stamp from Penny Black and had thoroughly enjoyed colouring them in. I had chosen this stamp to make a birthday card for one of my closest friends for her 40th birthday. I thought it would be cute. Anyway, I coloured both copies because I wasn’t sure about shading, colour selection, etc but was pleasantly surprised with how they came up. I had them sitting on the table for a couple of days while I worked out how to turn them into a card. The first attempt looked completely wrong. I added ribbons, embossed cardstock, tried different patterned papers, different colours of cardstock, even rounded corners of the image. I stamped up different sentiments on scrap paper and tested different looks. Finally I decided on a very simple and classic look. I inked up my stamp, positioned it in what I thought was the perfect spot, pressed the stamp to the paper, lifted it up and…..I somehow completed messed up the position. ARGH! I’m still not sure how I did it. lol
Here’s what happened.
I’m thinking I might just stamp the image on another sheet of paper and make it into a banner then stick it over the top. The reason I haven’t is because I really didn’t want to cover up the bottom of the stamped image. We shall see…
So, after the hiccup above I was left with my original stamped I had cut right down to nothing. I tried a few different things but finally settled on the below. It’s a little more blocky than I would have liked but I ran out of time to do much more.
I added a little stamped section inside the card too. Thought you might like to see…
I really want to colour this image again and try and make a less blocky card. It’s definitely hibernate inside weather at the moment. Perfect stamping weather! Hope you are all having a wonderful day! Thanks for stopping by!
