Empty Box Project #14 - No-one said it'd be Easy !



Well, at last I have used these Indigo Blu stamps from my Empty Box Project box!
I struggled. Firstly, I felt uninspired by them. (I think they were a free gift). Secondly, I found it hard to get a good impression of this woman stamp.

Eventually, I got a good impression using a very sticky ink pad and then chose some spring-y coloured inks and sponged them over. I stamped just the top line of the sentiment on the bottom of the panel.  Then I created a background with yellow ink and randomly stamping the two flower stamps.

Just to recap:
On New Year's day I revealed my stamping shame - a big box of unused stamps - and started my Empty Box project. My aim is to work through the box , one stamp/ stamp set at a time and see if I can use them. If I can't use them, I will dispose of them. The aim is to finish with an empty box.

I quite like the end result and yet...I don't love these stamps. If you do, please leave me a comment with your email address and I will contact you and send you them. (UK only please due to postage).

While I've got you, here's a photo of the paper bunting I made to decorate my house for Easter. I must find a better way of hanging it!
