With 1 stamp ... part 2

Hi there!

Back again with another couple of cards from using the Pleasant Poppies stamp ... and yes, i do love this stamp to bits!!!

Here's what I did today ...

Today, i am using most of the stamp ... i simply moved the stamp over and intentionally left about 1/3rd of my white space unstamped.  I just kind of love the unused space as a balance of a stamped image, especially when i am not matting the stamped image.  I used the same colour palette as yesterday, which is whisper white, crumb cake, calypso coral and tempting turquoise.  I used a bit of the old olive to paint the stems.

 I didn't paint the stems all of the way down, or the centres of the flowers ... i liked the whitespace there as well.  And yup, I am using the seam binding again ... this is truly my favourite ribbon from Stampin Up ... and it comes in several great colours ...

I hope you all get some time to dig into your stash of papers and inks and stamps and get a chance to play today ... its the perfect day to play ... just because!!!

peace, love and paper!
