Tassie Bridge in Green

Good afternoon all,

Well, I have finished having my wee melt down! It was fair giving me the willies using up bulk time looking for a stamp, so I downed tools and rearranged my somewhat vast stamp collection. Not sure how long this new system will last, but it sure has to be better than the last one....except, I have run out of storage space...but that is another drama to deal with. I probably would like things a whole lot better if I would just put things back where they belong once in a while!

So now you know where I have been the last couple of days! I have been immersed in rubber...just not using it!

Ok...on to the card....I seem to be entrenched in simple mode, but am taking it where it leads me and not stressing. This is another Tassie bridge, this time stamped on an alcohol ink background. It sure does give off a totally different mood to the Pearl Ex one done in blues!

Booked for camp at the end of the May today. I will stay longer and wander around to the wholesalers I deal with as well. I feel quite good about it all now it is set in motion!

Materials Stamps: Lucy's Bridge, TAC wording Inks: StazOn Black Cardstock: Bazzill and Unknown textured green Other: SU Label Punch, Brads, Alcohol Inks and Accessories

Michelle this is beautiful. It is amazing that you can use the same stamp and get two totally different looks. This card has such a subtle touch of color. TFS

I think I like this one a little better. I loved the pearl ex one but the image seems to pop a little more off the subtle background.

Beautiful card. I love the round tab punch at the top with the brads. I too need to do some reorganizing...hoping to get around to it today. I just get so tempted to "Create" and mess it up more.

Oh that's pretty - and I love that little tag on it too - makes it a tad on the fun side instead of wholly intense.

Your cards are just a work of art! Please give a tutorial on how to do this one (: What is camp? Are you starting a business?

This one looks fantastic, too. It is really interesting to me how very different a stamp can look by changing a technique or some colors, or both!
Glad you have your storage how you want it. At least for a few moments, anyway!

Good luck with the storage! The card is wonderful! The color scheme change sure makes it look different.
