A Spot of Color

As I type this, I'm reminded that my husband's call sign when he flew with the Air Force was Spot. He has a small white spot on the back of his head...and the hair that grew from it was also white. I was Mrs. Spot. Also, The Creature.

But that is a story for another time.

Anyway, staring for a very long time at Flower Garden, a set from Hero Arts, gave me the idea for this card.

This served the purpose of ticking off a bunch of the stamps in the set as "used." Only after they've all been used can the set join my hoard collection. This didn't use all the stamps, of course, but it freed me from the intimidating pressure of making a gazillion cards with this set's numerous small flowers.

Sets like this one are so much fun, even if they do overwhelm my sensitive CAS sensibilities.

stamps: Hero Arts Flower Garden, Papertrey Happy Trails
ink: Memento Luxe
paper: Papertrey white
accessories: rhinestones

  6. Love your spot of colour. My husband's callsign in the airforce (not a pilot) was Ego... we met after he was out, so I never got to be Mrs Ego, thankfully, haha! (There was a missing apostrophe that I couldn't live with in the original comment.)

  7. Gorgeous! Love that spot of color amongst the black and white.


Thank you so much for taking time to comment!
