Doesn't that sound scientific?!
Jason and I had our "anniversary" date yesterday which consisted of eating lunch out, buying a few plants for the garden, and going to the grocery store (all with no kids which made it very vacation-like, hee!). After we watched the first episode of Lost again (and Jason fell asleep on the couch), I experimented with PTI's A Little Argyle stamp set using different color schemes. On the PTI forum, a member challenged us to take out our argyle stamps and practice, as we were all a little intimidated by the gorgeous samples that Lisa Johnson (who created the stamp set) and the whole PTI team made. I seem to have the easiest time using the big argyle pattern included in the set.
Today, before we picked up the girls, I finished the two cards based on the argyle "swatches" I made...and here they are:
Inks: Tim Holtz Barn Door, Black Soot, and Antique Linen Distress inks
Stamps: PTI's A Little Argyle, Fruitful, oval shadow from Warm Happiness, sentiment from Vintage Picnic
Stamps: A Little Argyle, Everyday Button Bits (balloon and sentiment) and new cloud dies!
You, too, can have fun during Argyle Experimentation! If you have samples on your blog, be sure to link them up in the comments...and thanks for looking!
