Have a Seat

Recently I was home visiting my family for a week and one of the many highlights of the trip was getting in some stamping time with my mom and sister. Hurray for girl crafting time! Also fun was getting to play with some different stamp sets, like the one with this cute vintagey bench image from SU!'s Have a Seat. Keep an eye out for this set again. *wink*

I used an oldie but a goodie technique to stamp the bench, the rock 'n roll technique. First I inked the stamp up with Daffodil Delight ink, then I rolled just the edges in Crumb Cake. I like the nice subtle dimension this gives it. I also sponged the edges of the oval and ivory panel with Crumb Cake to soften it and keep with the vintage look I was going for. The French Script stamped at the bottom was done with a stamp-a-ma-jig, as the background stamp wasn't quite wide enough to cover the entire panel in one pass.

Simple and sweet and now available in my Etsy shop! :)
