Something New

I was so happy to see the challenge at Paper Sundae's was Something New... sometimes I need a kick in the hinney to use some of my fabulous stamps. This challenge was just the thing I needed to break open one of my new stamps from Stamping Bella (you know they had that fabulous sale awhile ago? And I just had to orders some stamps and then *gasp* never used them!) called Prezzies for Lulu.

So out comes the stamp... and I stamp and I color it with my Copics and then disappointment. This was not how these prezzies were supposed to look... what the heck? Ok I can do this! So out comes the stamp (again) and I stamp and color it with my Tombow watermarker and CTMH inks.... still not quite there. So two images in the trash and I thought 3rd time is the charm.... in the end maybe not exactly right but okay. I can live with this one! After that the card came together fairy easily with scraps from my scap bin and a little lace and ribbon. Hopefully it will make someone happy! :) Never give up my friends, never give up! Lol! :)

Have a creative day!
