When I was rummaging through my stash today, I found another graphic stamp set (My Favorite Things Trendy Triangles), so I decided to give my Stretch Your Stamps Class another try.
My dream was to do an Ombre Repeat Stamping like Kristina Werner, but I realized after stamping my first three rows, that I would be stamping well into tomorrow before I got an entire card done without a mis-stamp. So instead, I decided to combine her design with a modificaiton of Kelly Rasmussen's Border Stamping to cover my card front.
I stamped my ombre row two at a time, and then attached the four borders to cover the front of my card. You can clearly see that I struggle to get my stamping straight even with a ruler and lined blocks, but I still love the effect. I finished with an SRM Summer Sticker Sentiment which provides just the right contrast to the stamped background.
