I can’t believe it is already time for Papertrey Sneak Peeks! So exciting. 😉
I was also excited yesterday morning when I saw the topic for the new Make It Monday challenge of creating backgrounds with non-background stamps.
I was sitting in church two days ago, and the lady in front of us was wearing this pretty dress with a leaf/branch/flourish pattern in grey/coral/black colors. I sat studying it, noticing how all the different patterns looked so very much like PTI stamps from the Fancy Flourish, Harvest Berries, and Turning A New Leaf sets. I wanted to run home right away and create this background! I wish I could have taken a picture of her pretty dress so you could see how similar the patterns were to the PTI stamps – it was seriously uncanny!!
But I spent a little time last night, my last night before starting school lessons, down in my craft room trying to reproduce the patterns on that dress, and I think I came pretty darn close!
It didn’t turn out exactly how I saw it in my mind, but I just love it! I think it’s funny how I find myself staring at people’s clothes or scenery along a drive or anything that looks interesting, wondering how I can turn it into a card somehow. This was such a fun creation for me, especially after not having made a card for over a week!
