Hello. I stamped today. I probably should have been cleaning, but I really needed to stamp. Although I did do a couple of loads of laundry.

The ways to use it challenge today was to use labels. What I ended up with was completely different than what I had in mind when I started out. I had an idea on how to use the labels, but wasn't sure what stamps to use, etc. So while I contemplated that, I decided to work on another card for an upcoming class. I was basically going to case this card from Lydia, but didn't have enough basic gray card stock, so opted to change the colors. Then once I got going, I decided to use the labels on this card instead.

I stamped the flowers and leaves in not quite navy. The butterfly is stamped in stazon and colored with yoyo yellow and only orange markers. White gel pen is added to the dots.

For the strip of labels, I sponged them with yellow and orange and then stamped the butterfly several times. Then I put the labels on a strip of black card stock.

What's in it?
stamps: God's beauty (SU)
ink: jet black stazon, not quite navy, yoyo yellow, only orange
paper: kraft, basic black, whisper white, address labels
other: sponge, white gel pen, foam tape

Thanks so much for stopping by. Comments are always appreciated. Be blessed.
