So we have these great challenges on the A Muse Addicts Yahoo Group each week and I love to participate when I can but I'll be the first to admit that I've not participated as much as I should. This week Jennie decided to throw in an additional challenge for the mods, to do this week's challenge, to make a card using a stamp in a different way than it's intended for, and also, to use the new A Muse Cup and Saucer stamp in the challenge. Easy enough, right?? Wrong!!! I realized that I'm WAY too far inside the box and literal to think of other ways to use things easily. I love to create punny sayings to go with stamps, but it's tough for me to use a stamp in a way other than its original intent.
This was my first idea using this stamp and I was thinking it was different than it's original intent, but realized, they're still TEA cups!! :D So I had to try again. I will say that I'm proud of myself for actually pulling out my Stamp-a-ma-Jig on this card, so I didn't have to redo it!! Worked like a charm! So, back to the drawing board for a better idea...
This is what I came up with, a bubble bath!! :D I originally wanted to put a mouse in it, but I don't have a good stamp to use for that, so the octopus got it!! I thought it turned out pretty good until I stamped the "bubbly" part of the sentiment. I used my handy Provo Craft dial stamp to make the word, but in the process of inking it up, I inked up the edges of it too and then got it on the ribbon and the side of the card!! I hate it when that happens, after all the work that went into this, I wasn't about to scrap it and start over again, so on goes the "Work of Art" stamp by Judikins below!! It comes in handy with little mistakes like this!! :D
Thanks for stopping by!! Check out this amazing card that Michelle (Crazystampchick) did for our little challenge!! :D
