Now that I have a little time in my days again, I thought about participating in Papertrey Ink’s Make It Monday for glitter masking projects. But glitter and I are really not on THAT good of terms!
So today’s project is for the CR84FN #44 challenge using these delightful colors:
This is my creation:
Since I promised myself I would start using more of my unused supplies, I opened my new Stitches and Swirls stamp set from PTI. I’ve been eager to use this set anyway, because I have been a cross-stitching junkie since I was about 10 years old. It has been a wonderful passion in my life over the years. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to do much of it lately, after the fabulous side effects of infertility drugs have taken their toll on my eyesight. But I always love to see anything remotely cross-stitch-y, so I quickly grabbed this set at release time.
I stamped the big flower/leaf clusters in light pink first, then used the individual flower blooms to stamp over the pink ones using a coral ink. Some of them weren’t quite the right size – I hope it doesn’t look too weird. I wasn’t quite sure what to do with these colors, and my first project with them was a total bomb. (Brain cramp.) I’m just glad this one turned out decent! At least, I hope it’s decent.

I really love all my Think Big Favorites stamp sets. I will probably shed a few tears when that series ends (if that’s the plan).
