Well, I finished my new Pretty Patterns 2 video for you, think it turned out pretty good minus a blooper but unfortunately the format is not one that Youtube recognizes, so I can't upload it without converting it. And I am sketchy on how to convert it but do have directions, so...! (Not sure why my other videos worked and this one didn't, but anywho...! Boo hiss!) Hopefully this weekend!
Time and Pretty Patterns 2. I was trying out these border stamps with some of the inks when they first arrived, wanting to do something a little unexpected. The two yellowish brown shades are both Gina K. Honey Mustard, the lighter one is stamped off. This is a quick way to fill up a mat with this particular pattern, to stamp again without re-inking. I used the individual diamond element inked in Ocean Mist to fill in random openings. However, I noticed I messed up on that one at the top right being half inked and half not, from when I stamped off the corner of the mat and restamped, ya know?), so I quit without finishing. Something about it, though, kept me from wanting to scrap it, so the other day I decided to leave the pattern "as is" and just sponged more of the Honey Mustard ink around the edges to make it look like a timeworn, artsy paper. Perfect for this stamp duo! The fact that my brand new stamps were resisting the ink a little so they had a little texture to them, too, was kind of serendipitous!
So glad you are lovin' the new patterns! :) Thanks for all your wonderful feedback about my samples this week!
