Kinda Eclectic Swap

The stamp set Kinda Eclectic has been growing on me lately. ALOT! When I first saw the set in the catalog I thought... 'Well, it has a butterfly, but what an odd assortment of images it is'. But search the web (or even easier, Pinterest) for this and you will see some BEAUTIFUL samples made from it. Now I'm sold- as if I really needed to add to my wish list ;)

I got this swap from Mary Beers, and it once again shows me how versatile this set can be.

I love how we used the dotted background a couple of times without re-inking it to give the various shades of intensity. Oh, and just one more quick hint- make sure you stamp off the leaves once before adding to the card. Otherwise (depending on the color of the ink of course) it will be too dark to add the sentiment on top of the image. Let's just say I learned this one the hard way... and that it was a good thing paper has two sides to stamp on! :)

Flutterby again soon.

Pin It!
