When I saw the theme for Make My Monday this week I was pleased, then spotted the dreaded words 'clean and simple' which isn't really my chosen style. I decided that while the floral bouquet stamp by Chocolate Baroque was out I would use it again but in a different way. I've had this stamp plate for quite a while but to my shame this the first time I'd actually used that particular stamp - shame really because it is so pretty. I cut a mask out of thin card using a Spellbinder die and coloured through it using distress inks before stamping the flowers in black - a simple stamped sentiment and the CAS floral card is done. Do take a look at the various ideas made by their design team - lots of ideas there.
The sunshine seems to have deserted us for now and it is dull, grey and very wet this morning so you can probably guess what I will be doing today.- once I've tidied away the stray ink pads, stamps and so on which seem to be cluttering my working space.
PS there is a great giveaway from the Ribbon Girl - leave them a comment to be in with a chance
