The DT Challenge at Let's Scrap was to used stamps in the layout, and I also had a challenge over at Scrap-Friendzy for Scrap UR Stash #10 to use foam stamps with paint, so this is for both challenges.
Here is the wonderful Let's Scrap Sketch from Sept. 9, 2009 that I used for inspiration:
The foam stamps came from a drawing at a crop I attended a couple years back. I embellished the stamped flowers with some stick-on pearls I just happened to have in my stash that matched the paint.
I used a Bazill In Stitch'z template for my stitching. I traced the large scallop edge and cut it out by hand. I keep a variety of papers with designed edges that I can trace and cut on whatever paper matches the layout I am doing. The circle border was cut with a file from the fabulous designs created by Monica Björk. She has a ton of gorgeous free cutting files in a variety of file types. I placed the circle scallop on a neutral cardstock and cut around the edge with my scissors.
Thanks so much for stopping by to look.
