Flight of Fancy -- AFSS23
While watching morning cartoons with my kids I remembered that I bought (had to have) this stamp set from Sassafras Lass, Oliver & Friends. This was part of my Mother's Day gifts. So finally I broke it out. It's perfect for Allison's weekly challenge featuring things "Up in the Air".
A couple of notes of what I did here. I've learned the hard way that you can't get a great imprint with dye ink with clear stamps so I used my craft inks mostly. I don't have a huge supply of craft ink so I improvised by first inking up the stamp with VersaMark and then stamping into the color I wanted. Then I thought Why not emboss them too so I embossed with clear (owls and saying). The clouds are embossed with white. The green scrap of paper was just a silly thing that I wanted to do. I told my friend Misty that I could use up a leftover scrap of paper that she was going to throw out. So here's the last piece. I'm sure she doesn't even remember.
