Hard Work....

Although I LOVE both my Rubber Romance stamps and also my Basic Grey papers, I find both incredibly tricky to work with. Consequently, this card felt like fairly hard work!

I used my Girlfriends on a Bench RR stamp and coloured using my Whisper pens and a watercolour brush. Not sure how successful the colouring has been though....! I layered it onto Two Scoops papers. I finished this simple card with ribbon and a metal tag from Eyelet Outlet.

I'm not sure why I find the Rubber Romance stamps tricky to work with. I think I am fine with the simple designs - for example, Samantha and Fiona which I've already used. However, I seem to find the more complex designs a bit more tricky as they are so big and intricate that it is hard to match them with things that 'work' without the whole thing looking mismatched and cluttered. I think I'll have to keep practicing!

Such lovely subtle colours. I think you've done a great job, but I know what you mean about the more complex stamps.

I think you've done a fantastic job Stacey!!
I have to agree with Jools, it sounds as if you may be over critical of your own abilities. You have put the elements of this card together brilliantly & your colouring looks perfect to me!
I love it!
