On not throwing things away

50th anniversary

I almost never create one-of-a-kind images.  When I am experimenting with something , I’ll stamp the image several times so I can practice.  (That’s why I still have several water colored watering can images that I’ve been using lately.)  I put the extras in a box labeled “Scraps,” available at a moment’s notice for a quick card.

So when I rummaged through the box this morning, I found an image from one of my favorite SU! sets:  Watercolor Garden II, which retired some time ago.  Some of its stamps were designed for two-step stamping, the layering of images (like the big flower heads, above) in complementary colors to create shading and depth.  Very fun to experiment with!
