irresistible color

No matter how you spell it, color certainly makes the exercise more fun.

I used two different stamps and overlapped - precise and careful. My usual mode. Or is it a rut? Looks like a curtain design from the late 50's, early 60's doesn't it?

The red squares are filled in with a brush and paint. They are the impressions of the clamp I used to keep the foam on while the glue dried. I left a couple of them white on the upper right. I think filling them in really improves the design.

Now this one is a mess - but it's not precise, not in my rut, is it? I like the top better than the bottom but I was getting tired of seeing the white cardstock, so I thought I would just cover it. Yuk. Better to start over on fabric and do the squiggles again. Tomorrow.

The red makes a huge difference. I liked the squiggles too, I am so glad that I am not the only one who messes up by going too far :)

Thanks, sophisticated usually comes from precision and neatness... I often wonder how to do "spontaneous."
Green is a good color. Say it with me. Green is good.
