Out from Under a River Rock
Have I mentioned I don't really like the color "river rock?" Have I said how bummed I was when it came out of retirement to make the core color collection? Have I mentioned how many of my stamping friends insist it will grow on me if I just give it a chance??
Well, I used river rock for a new catalog swap...back in JUNE...and never touched the stuff since! This weekend, as I was stamping a lot, I decided to try it again. I used basic black and not quite navy (including the must-have-pattern-paper-stack). I stamped a flower from Fifth Avenue Floral randomly, and added dazzling diamonds in the center. Tried to at least. Looks like I need some heat and stick powder! My scallop oval and modern label punch are here again with Teeny Tiny Wishes. Grosgrain ribbon and rhinestones finish it out. The sketch is from a challenge blog...here is a link.
So...do I like river rock yet? Hmmmm...the jury is still out!
