Something New is '22 - August

I have a lot of stamps - from a lot of companies. When my husband walks into my Play Room, he sometimes looks around and suggests that I'm single-handedly trying to keep the stamping companies in business. Nah! I know many of you are helping that cause, too. 

So why would I start a new series this year that requires me to buy new stamps??? Because it's going to be fun.

Something New in '22

The concept is to find a new (to me) stamp company each month, to purchase a stamp/set and create a card. Once a month. Twelve companies. Twelve stamp sets. Doesn't that sound fun?!?!?!?! (I see your head nodding in agreement.)

This month's company is AALL & Create. The look isn't entirely my style - it's grunge. I tend to be more of a clean and simple kind of stamper. BUT... the stamp set I chose is flowers and I love flower stamps.

I used my Misti and stamped the image with VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink. Leaving the stamp on the Misti platform, I removed the paper and colored the image with Faber Castell Polychromo colored pencils. Then I place it back in the Misti and stamped again to get a nice crisp stamped image.

Have I ever mentioned how much I love my Misti???

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
