I've been missing my scrappy mojo since like for ever closed. I was messing around on Facebook when a post from Claire popped up - did anyone want to swap layouts to scraplift? Perfect, I thought, I can scrap one of her layouts to get me going again...
Here are the results:
My original and Claire's take
Claire's original and my take
And here it is in a little more detail...
I used a background stamp from Simon Says Stamp and third, fourth and fifth generation stamping. I journalled a lot underneath the vellum heart, just writing over the top of the previous layer so none of it is legible.
The sequins are SpiegelMom Scraps Build A Snowman and the stars are Cocoa Vanilla Studio. I was beginning to wonder if I had upset Claire as I was sewing. I don't like hand sewing on layouts and I reinforced to myself why - I needled myself. I'm used to sticking a needle in my finger but this time I got my boob!!!
And although I am not the world's greatest stamper I really like this stamping off effect. I hope to be getting more use from my stamps from now on!
As it happens the pink and blue match the Simon Says challenge so I am entering it.
