I love it when a brand new challenge blog begins! I've been looking forward to this one, because I've got lots to learn! In case you haven't noticed I'm about 180 degrees away from Clean and Simple. Here is our first challenge, to use text in our creation:
Here's my submission:
I used a page from a Reader's Digest Condensed Book called The "Ladies of Missalonghi" for my flower, and the leaves have script built right into the stamp. I'd love some criticism on how this design could be improved.......if I had my way I'd have stamped a big text background in tone-on-tone behind all of this, but I restrained myself.
supplies: kraft and cream cardstock, text from old book, Hero Arts CL495 Blossom Art, CL298 Scattered Leaves, AR130 Handwritten Sentiments, versafine onyx black ink, gold and orange markers
