My card for today puts some of those opinions to task! I love acrylics and how you can see right where you are stamping. Rub-ons come in such a variety of colors and designs now, how could you not want to use them on cards, glass, ribbon..... and unmounted stamps sure take up a lot less room than wood mounted! As for the supplies..... well, let's just say that I used to remember every single thing in my stamp room..... and the other day after I came home from Hobby Lobby to get Glue Dots, found a drawer full of pop dots, Glue Dots, foam tape and Dimensionals......
not to mention the drawer full of eyelets, ribbon, chipboard, clips, flowers, and gems. We won't talk about the six drawers of designer paper.......
But today I am excited because I got my Clip It Up last week and I plan to unpack it and see how much I can put on there! Watch for pictures this weekend!
My card today uses one of my favorite techniques: Polished Stone. I love all the different looks you can get, depending on the colors and the way you apply those colors. Today's Polished Stone background uses Old Olive, Encore Gold and Purely Pomegranate. After I made the background, I applied this beautiful silhouette rub-on from American Crafts. I stamped the sentiment (Stamp Oasis/Rubbernecker) in Always Artichoke on Pink Pirouette cardstock, and then tore the edges to meet the challenge today on SCS: Ways To Use It - Torn Paper. The edges were sponged in Always Artichoke and Pink Pirouette (a new In Color for this year).
