2009-12-17 Frugal recreation of fancy curves
I really liked the curved stamp on this card. I have always liked “shadow stamps” and have missed them. I should really just bring them out again and forget that these are not the hot item in the stamping world right now. Being as I’m economically challenged at this point, instead of going on a search to buy this stamp, I thought I’d try to see if I could find a frugal way to try to achieve similar results.
I took a ruler and drew a straight line, then lined up two different sizes of oval Nestabilities along the line I’d drawn. No worries about being neat, I’m just making a stencil I’m going to mess up any way.
If I try to recreate this again, I’ve already got a stencil to use. I think if I really do try again that I would use a darker color of rose ink for the verse.
