Although the number of scheduled posts I left means it didn't really show, I've just got out my crafting goodies again after a week's break - family visiting from overseas meant we needed all the space we could muster so I had to pack everything up. That means I am WAAAAAAAAY behind on making cards for challenges and for forthcoming DT posts. I'm going to need to spend the next few days crafting my socks off!
It also means I am much later than usual in joining in with the Resist Technique challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers. I'd been hoping that somewhere among all my sentiment stamps I would have one that said "I can resist anything except temptation" but alas I don't appear to have, so this time the emphasis is very much on the stamping rather than the snark.
I chose the Dylusions sentiment "Life is hard, your art shouldn't be" and then wanted a motif to contrast with the word "Hard". Although the context probably implies the opposite should be "easy", I spotted my lovely (and ancient) feather stamp from Santa Rosa and my mind immediately switched to the alternative opposite, "soft".
Stamped in Versamark and embossed with clear powder, I then sponged turquoise and green inks over to make the white background show through. Some tiny clusters of turquoise Liquid Pearls added the finishing touch.
