Hello Tweets! the CSS design team's June project is with the awesomely cute set Tweet Notes... creating backgrounds with stamping.
And I have never been so brave with stamping before now. Usually my cards consist of just a teeny little stamping bit, or simply the sentiment in vintage sepia / smokey grey ink. The last few weeks, I've learned to pull myself out of my creative rut and LEARN TO STAMP!! ha.
For this card, I twisted the vines on the stamping block before inking with olive ink and stamping onto the cream cardstock. The leaves were filled in with a simple color pencil. I don't know WHEN I'll ever take the plunge and get some copics --- perhaps never. Pencils must suffice.
The vines were accented with pearls, and the flowers are just layers of Prima petals and a simple rosebud in the middle. Trim is from Little Red Cottage, and the sentiment is from CSS' Kind Deeds set.
Now go visit my DT friends and see what they have up their sleeves:

Well, I hope you are having quite a special day. After all, it was twenty years ago, minus 365 days, that I let out my first scream after entering the world. Perhaps today I'll mark the occasion by letting out nineteen shrieks?
that would be more likely if a cockroach / lizard makes it's appearance before me today. Through all these years, my fear of bugs have somewhat increased.
(True story: when I was 2 years old I bit the head off a beetle and it was never found again)
