As I sifted through my stack o'scketches, I ran across this one from Unscripted Sketches:
I decided to use that pack of still-out Memory Box "valise" papers, and I made two cards, but with different "somethings" added. First I made this one:
About that flower ... I die-cut about 8 layers from a heavy-weight black paper napkin, scrunched them up, secured them with a brad, and scrunched them up again. It was only later I realized the dark paper strip is darkdarkdark brown, and not black. ;/
Then I made this version:
UnderstandBlue. (She has the link to her stamp in her side bar.) Each time I use Maddie and cut her out, I leave the tail all curly and not stuck down. Also, I inked the stamp in Early Espresso, so it's closer to the color of the horizontal paper strip.
I think I'll have something to eat (for sustenance... stamping is HARD WORK, people!), then go in and stamp some more.
Thanks for stopping by!
