I always struggle to answer the question, "What is your stamping style?" Do you ever feel this way? I like to think I have a varied style, that I'm adaptable. I like realistic/artistic images, but also have a soft spot for cute (like the darling owls in my previous post). I'm learning more about vintage style and collage work... and loving every minute of it.
So, when I saw the latest stamp additions to The Rummage Bin Collection at Cornish Heritage Farms, I knew I'd love them. They are so different and fresh. Lesley Langdon (the creator extraordinaire) has outdone herself with her addition of collage stamps.
I loved creating with this stamp. The sweet Little One is a larger image, making this an easy card. For that reason, I thought I'd create a larger card (this one was sized 7 x 4-1/2"), which gave me plenty of space for a flower and lace, without covering much of the girl. I stamped the girl with Vintage Photo Distress ink by Ranger and added shading with Old Paper Distress ink. It's perfect for that sepia photo-finished look. In total, I think it took me about 15 minutes to create my card. I can't wait to give this to a friend...
And I'm already thinking of the home decor that I want to make with this stamp. OK... gotta run... I must get stamping!
