Techno Stamper Challenge #10


I have a basket on my desk and every once in a while I add things to it. Backgrounds, paper, images already stamped and stamps I want to work with. Then when I sit down to work I try to confine myself to this basket. This weeks challenge was a problem as my images were all tall and not wide. I went through this basket a couple of times trying to make my images work and then I found this Japanese Lantern I had colored from I Brake for Stamps and things started to fall into place. I did cut out 2 arrows from different papers but decided I didn't like either one. Looked through my embellishment drawer and saw the paper clip and before you know it I had an arrow. I worked on this during the commercials last night. My husband watched me change card colors and backgrounds and cut things out and throw them back in the basket. I don't think he realized how much thought I put into my cards. He asked about the sketch which has been on the computer screen all week and I explained what I do each week. Wasn't happy with the card until I added the cord. Now I feel it's complete. I decided to print off these sketches each week and hang them above my desk as a reference. Now that I have some Nestabilities and some Coluzzles I plan on doing more layering and different arrangements when I work on my cards. What great gadgets these 2 things are.

The paper basket image is perfect for your Cling and Scrunch technique. They both compliment the other just right! TFS
