CPS73: Yellow Daisies


This week's CPS73 sketch is sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps, I thought I would bring them out of hiding (I hadn't used them in a while) and I remembered how fun it is to do one sheet wonders. In this case, I just did 1/2 sheet so I could make 2 cards instead of one. Makes the layered stamping more worth it in my opinion. I wanted to do a little something different with my take on the center of the sketch. Since clear stamps can be manipulated, I arched it on my acrylic block on the card on the right & that became my faux layer! I really like how it turned out. The one on the left is a more straight-forward interpretation but I wanted to add a little interest with the ribbon so I tied it like you would a man's tie.
