Hi! I picked up the Peas on Earth stamp set from Ink Blot Shop last Christmas and I'm ashamed to say I'm using it for the first time! It's such a cute stamp set! I love that it has images and sentiments for making classic Christmas cards as well as cute ones! I decided to use the cute peas and coordinating sentiment to make today's card!
I'm not very artistic....at all. And I have a small work area and I only have room for basic supplies on my desk. I wanted to watercolor a rainbow of colors in a circle shape in the middle of my card. Usually I sketch out a circle using a circle die or a bowl, but this was an impromptu card and I was too lazy to get up and grab something to create a perfect circle! Haha! So I tried to freehand it - and as you can see - it didn't work too great. Oh well! I wasn't going to scrap it! I never do! I used my Gansai Tambi watercolors and stamped the earth and little flourish with Versamark ink and white embossing powder. I wanted the sentiment to be in white, but I knew it wouldn't show up. Looking at it now I should have used white embossing on black cardstock.
I stamped the little peas and some Santa hats, colored them with watercolors, and fussy cut them. I adhered them on top of the earth with foam squares!
Thanks for joining me! This stamp set is one I will be using again!
