Mistakes become a new technique.

Yesterday as I was stamping quickly I messed up.  Instead of making precise and calculated measurements to not overlap with what I had just stamped, I stamped almost half of my stamp over what was already there.  At first I got frustrated, but then I looked at what I did.  Then I liked it.  My overlay became almost that of a plaid pattern.

Don’t forget to even look at your mistakes.

An alternate to a kit.

Today’s card is a tiny bit different as it is a bit of a conglomeration of ideas.  First, I started with a colored base, a new color at that.  The color is called Granny Apple Green.  And then I cut it long ways instead of the “normal” way.  I then took a piece of white cardstock and stamped the corners with Bokeh Dots in Lemon Lime Twist.  Then I trimmed a piece of Designer Series Paper from the Broadway Bound Specialties Papers.  Last I took a piece of whisper white cardstock and stamped from the Paper Pumpkin stamp set with Granny Apple Green ink.  I topped it all off with a remnant from a banner from the Paper Pumpkin kit.
