Face the Music...

I got into stamping because I consider it pure bliss to ink up a slab of rubber, and watch it magically transform a piece of paper. Since becoming a demonstrator, I must admit that the "joy" factor has waned a bit, as I try to showcase the latest products and design projects based on my customers' preferences. I am now making it a point to sit down occasionally and just play... There are always plenty of opportunities for RAKs - and I certainly couldn't send something to a friend in plain old card-free envelope! I wasn't able to stamp yesterday as I had planned (muttering about the ice storm under my breath), but I did take some time this evening to make this one card. Definitely a departure from my usual - I think I'll refer to it as "collage lite." The patterned paper is from MAMBI (scrappy chic collection), and I dug through my embellishment box to add the black patterned mulberry paper (scrap of unknown origin), Prima flower, copper dragonfly brad, and May Arts ribbon. The sentiment stamp is from Stamp Francisco, and the woman is by Inkadinkado (Dawn Houser). Yep, stamping is still a whole lot of fun!!
