Two Years Old!

Since this one was for a two-year old, I thought he wouldn’t mind if I made an experimental foray into the world of scenic stamping.  WHOA!  How grateful I am that the artistic discernment of a two year old is pretty much non-existent.  Just this one timid little step into semi-scenic stamping is all I care to make, thank you very much . . .

I now have even more respect for scenic stampers and I will be entirely happy to leave this tricky art form entirely to them.  My one bright idea in this card was turning the graphic leaf stamps into trees:  surely my profs from the wonderful online Stretch Your Stamps class of last month would be proud!

  1. Auntie -- You must NOT give up! I think this is one your best cards, hands down! I immediately took notice and fell in love. You had several "bright" ideas here ... but I agree you nailed turning the leaves into trees! I say "keep tinkering!" Muchas Smoochas - Becky
