Trying Something New

This week, the There She Goes Clear Stamps Challenge is called "make an impression". The challenge is to use line art. I had no idea what that meant so I read on and discovered that you are supposed to stamp your image in a light color, and then paper piece a portion of it, or just color a small portion of it. I thought that sounded intriguing and the DT samples were gorgeous so I decided to give it a try with one of my Anya stamps. I stamped the whole image onto the pink paper with Versamark. Then I stamped it again on some patterned paper and cut out the boots and the purse which I pop-dotted onto the image. I hope I've done this correctly. I *think* I like it but sometimes when I look at it, I think the boots and purse look like they are just floating in mid air so it looks odd. :)
A Spoonful of Sugar: cute and girly
Papertake Weekly: flowers
TSG: lineart
Kah Wink E Dink: make your own embellishments (I colored the flowers with Copics and added the buttons to the middles)
Just a side note here about coloring the flowers. WOW I think I'm going to buy all white flowers from now on. I mean, I have a ton of Copics and it's so easy to color the flowers to match whatever color you are using. No more searching for the exact right color flower! Yes, I do have the "tub of Primas" I got at the convention and it will probably take me five years to use them up BUT I'm happy to have found this coloring option and will definitely use it a lot.
