Well, some things turned out really great, and some were sorta "meh." I attribute it to just not finding the right groove with these stamps, or at least, not finding it yet.
Anyway, to get started, I did a couple along the same lines. I like to see what different colorways do to an idea.
I made these--
I think I was trying to line up the stamp in order to strengthen the lines, and I clearly missed. I have no idea why I would have tried to do a shadow stamp here, so...
I do like the juxtaposition of the stamped and die cut clouds. Any cloud is good for me! I think I could have been more successful had I masked the balloon or cut out another one and mounted it on top. (I may do that yet!)
So! Learned here--
Panel placement and clouds = good! balloon on top of pre-stamped clouds = not-as-good.
Oh yeah--The die cut clouds are done with shimmer paper. Me likey that, almost as much as my Amuse Studio Clouds Duo dies!
I guess there's a learning curve for almost all of our new supplies! That's why our best work comes when we are playing around, amiright?
Thanks for stopping by!
