Birds of a Feather

(Blogging note: I am trying a *Windows Live Writer* to compose this post. The reason I am trying it is that the awkwardness of the Blogger compose window keeps me from posting many days. Let's see if this program helps. So far so good!)

This week's Featured Stamper is Mothermark. Not only is she a wonderful stamper, but she is a FABULOUS storyteller, too!

Well, I fall short on both accounts, but I need to learn.

I chose this card of hers to CASE.

I figured with the mono-chromatic look, that I couldn't go wrong. I chose the lavender lace color because I knew I had embellishments to go with it. However, over half way through the card--I realized that the embellishments were still at my Mother-in-Law's house. So I fudged. Silver works, right??

I took a risk with the gel pen. And though I like the dots--I hate the little scallops that I put in the corners of the mat. Lesson learned, but frankly--I don't take enough risks in stamping--so I think it is successful.

Materials used (all SU! unless otherwise noted):

  • Stamps: Garden Collage, Floral BG, Vases in Vogue

  • Ink: Lavender Lace Classic, Whisper White Craft

  • Paper: Whisper White, Lavender Lace

  • Accessories: (the punched squares were gifts from friends), Post-It Correction tape (for masking -by 3M), label holder (non-SU!), silver ribbon (Joann's), Silver Brads, Ticket corner punch, Stampin' Dimensionals, Stampin' Pastels

Thanks for looking.

(Note: I love this program--so much better than trying to compose in Blogger!!)
