A Bit More Stamping Than Usual

Hello Dear Reader

It's challenge time again on Case This Sketch. Without it, I'm not sure I'd be posting anything on here.  I am busy designing away on my computer all day and when evening comes around, I just want to veg out. My eyes feel heavy and gritty and my brain feels too tired to be creative. Which means I've not been pulling out my stash.

But it's the weekend and it's a perfect time to grab my stamps and papers and catch up with the ever increasing list of podcasts which iTunes downloads, to put on in the background.

So I took this sketch

Flipped it around and made this...

And because I've been using my dies a lot recently, whilst my stamps have remained un-inked, I decided to correct the imbalance. The background, figures, heart, speech balloon and sentiment are all stamped. The label & centre strip are all that is cut out this time.

I admit I found it a challenge to keep the design clean and graphic whilst using so many different stamps though. However, I'm happy with the result
