Stickers and Stamps


 First off, I want to share my Unscripted sketch card with you.  Here is the sketch. 
 I really like the sketch this week.  It was simple and fun.  Part of the fun comes with the Little Yellow Bicycle supplies. 
 The fun flowers are stickers. I just love this particular collection of papers and stickers.
 My next card represents some "play time"! I love to experiment.  I placed a stencil down on plain white cardstock and sprayed this with the blue Chalkboard Glimmer Mist.  After I finished spraying, I realized that I had lots of spray on the entire stencil so I carefully picked it up and turned it over onto another piece of plain white cardstock.  All of that extra blue ink was now on my paper.  Next, with the stencil in place, I sprayed it with yellow so that they yellow Chalkboard Glimmer Mist colored the vine design in the stencil. I just loved the resulting combination.  I also colored white seam binding with the same yellow spray.
 The little butterflies are a stamp by Inkadinado.  I thought stamping them with the solid black was a good contrast.
And for a few photos...
 I am having a ball with my Hipstamatic camera app on my phone. I just stand and keep changing the lens and films!  We went to walk around our harbor the other day so I had to capture some photos of the boats.
 Here is another lens/film combo for a completely different look.
This photo is of some wind wheels. 
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
