If you haven't read the comments on my last post, I suggest you mosey on over and check them out. People have shared a bit of their creative process, and it's always educational to see how other people "do" stamping. There are some really thought-provoking perspectives on the process there. Thanks to all who commented. Perhaps even more of you will comment!
Today's card uses the only mum set I've found that I truly love...Papertrey's Mum's the Word.
There are three sizes of mum in the set, and these are the two smaller ones. The third is quite large, and using all three on one card doesn't leave enough white space for my tastes. My solution would usually be to stamp the small one twice, thus creating a visual triangle. But when I stamped these two, I thought, "Huh. That's enough."
And it was.
Just goes to show that the concept of visual triangles, while extremely pleasing to the eye in many situations, need not be followed as an inviolable rule.
Sometimes, two are just fine.
And isn't "inviolable" a really cool word? Say it out loud. Inviolable. Love those vowels.
