Dream a little dream of me.

Hello all!
Back with another song related blog post title so apologies if you've now got the song in your head!   The version I know is by The Mamas and Papas - I do enjoy a bit of 60's music every now and then :)
                        Anyway I wanted to do a card for the current Stampotique challenge which is to use text as I love anything to do with text and typography!  I had an idea brewing for what I wanted to do and this was one of those great times when the idea actually translated itself onto the card and looked just as I had  pictured it - I love it when a plan comes together.
                                  I stamped the Jasmin image (by Jo Capper Sandon at Stampotique) onto a page of dictionary text and added a touch of colour with some pencils.  I love this stamp but don't use it as much as I should - need to change that!  I used Adobe PSE to print the background words so that they were off the edge of the cardstock and splattered on some yellow ink.  I then attached the torn edged stamped image with my current fave crafting accessory - washi tape!

                               You're going to be seeing a lot of this style in the coming weeks as I absolutely love it!! 
I tend to become a bit obsessed if I like something and I'll do it over and over until the next thing comes along that I 'absolutely love'.
                       I would also like to enter this into the following challenges - Simon Says Stamp and Show ,  Challenges 4 everybody, , Lady Annes Sentimental Friday , Creative Creations , Cute card Thursday and 613 Avenue Create .

Thanks so much for popping in :)

WOW! Lots of fun techniques and clever ideas on this one Dawn. I wish I got along with Washi Tape better. I never know what to do with it. LOL I can hear Mama Cass plain as day. :-) Been in a bit of a 60's mood myself listening to some Rolling Stones. Have a great day! Hugs!

So artistic! This is WAY beyond the standard cute, nice card.

Kathi said...

Wow. Very, very cool design and a great way to color the Stamp image!

I agree that it's a fantastic feeling when a project comes together the way you had imagined it in "your mind's eye".
