Keep It Simple

It's been a while and I'm still feeling in a creative slump.  But I forced myself to get out my stamps last weekend and make something.  I decided to keep it really simple.  I covered one of my new Fred Mullett stamps with markers, spritzed it with water and stamped onto watercolor paper.  Once dry, I stamped a sentiment on top.

On the second card, I added a little more interest to the panel by sponging ink around the edges and spritzing the main panel with marker.

I then fooled around a little more with the same image, stamping the same image several times using a positioner and adding detail with prisma pencils and gamasol.  I decided not to make cards with these ones, but put them in my journal instead.  I like how they turned out.  My mojo will return one day!

Have a creative week!

Clean and Simple Bird Card

There's not been much blogging action going on around here lately!  Part of my day job is organizing the city's farmers market and with summer fast approaching, that's been taking up lots of time.  But once we're up and running, I'm looking forward to having a little more time to stamp and blog.

Here's a clean and simple card I made a while ago.  The bird image is from my one of my Vintage Bird Kits.  If you would like to purchase a kit, click here.

Happy weekend!
