I'm continuing my series or I should say challenge to myself to use more of the tools I've bought and never used. For this one it is the sentiment stamp and the focus stamp. I now have a small basket of supplies on my desk filled with a few stamp sets, a few embossing folders and a few stickers that I'm challenging myself to use up before I move on to something else. So, you'll see more of the sentimental stamp sentiments :- ) over the next few weeks as I attempt to use every one in the set.
Although I don't typically work with these colors I wanted to use up a small strip of patterned paper from the Echo Park 6 x 6 pad I've been using lately. I think it works...let me know what you think and be sure to leave some comments.
Here's a closeup of the button and embroidery thread I used to coordinate with the card stock and patterned paper
Finally, I'll list the supplies I used next but I saw this idea on another blog to reference the marker colors I used on the focal image...sorry I don't know who...I'm definitely going to have to keep notes so I can reference them on my posts but I thought it was a great idea so you can not only get the code numbers but also see the colors. Great idea, huh?! Here's my supply list.
