Gingersnap Creations Creative Connection - Only One Stamp



It's time for another fun Gingersnap Creations Creative Connection (GCCC).  The idea is to first create a piece of art using a particular theme as inspiration - and this month's theme is "Only One." Make a stamped creations that uses Only One Stamp - use it as many times as you want, but don't bother to ink any others up!  Once you've posted your piece to your blog or other share website, mention my post and the Creative Connection post on Gingersnap Creations.  Whoever is inspired by your post should similarly link to both your post and to GCCC.  We all "craft it forward" so to speak, and see how far we can get this connection to go.

I was inspired to participate in this month’s "GCCC" - Only One - by Aisling's gorgeous fall card on her blog, Aisling's Hobby Blog.  The "one stamp" I chose to use was a larkspur flower from Papertrey Ink.  I stamped it twice on some background paper in lavender Archival ink, then again in black on a cardstock panel, which I colored in with Copics.  Also added a little patterned paper, some crinkly seam binding, and a decorative edge.  I wanted to continue the theme on the inside, so....
Now before you start pointing fingers, I can explain....... the sentiment is a *sticker* from SRM.  Nope, it's not cheating, it's being creative!!!  LOL!  This little card has already found its way to my MIL.  (Had to mail it, that's why I kept it relatively flat.... for me, anyway!).


I hope you'll have time to play along - it's a fun challenge!
