An Eclectic Collage — FMS140

It’s Wednesday again!  And the super fun and wildly talented Linda Callahan has a fabulous sketch for us over at Freshly Made Sketches:

One of the stamp sets that I used to make convention display samples was Kinda Eclectic.  I made eight projects with it, and even after finishing all of them I still didn’t want to put this set away.  So I decided to use it for this sketch.  I ended up taking some major creative liberties with the sketch, but I hope it still looks true to the sketch.

FMS EclecticThis is one of those stamp sets in which I truly love every single stamp.  And I love how easy it is to combine all of the images.

I used a color combination of Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight, and Tangelo Twist.  The sentiment is from Lots of Thanks.

FMS Eclectic Close UpOne way I know I’m getting old is that my eyesight isn’t what it used to be.  It took me about three projects before I realized that there was writing on the polka dot strips.  So there is a right way and an upside down way to stamp this image.  Be warned!

Next month, after convention, I can share the other eight projects I made with this set.  However, I’m sure I’ll be using it again before then.

Be sure to go by the Freshly Made Sketches site and check out what the rest of the team made with the sketch.  And then play along with us and post your own card to the gallery.  We love seeing what you make!

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Very pretty Amy! Collage style is the hardest for me and you make this look flawless! ; ) I like your color combo, the bright and cheery sunburst, and your fabulous bow. I didn’t catch the words on the dots, guess I’m in too much of a hurry these days. I’ll take a second look at the stamp set in the catty now. Have a wonderful week!

  2. Hi Amy, Beautiful card! My first thought was “yeah, you’re going to convention!” Then with a sense of panic I thought, “oh no, we’ll be getting that set there, a shame!” Then, I was exuberant and proud to read we’ll see YOUR DISPLAY BOARDS there… I can’t wait!!! Woo Hoo! 🙂 I “just” signed up on Sunday and am still sort of shocked that I’ll actually be able to make it this year, there’s been a lot of other things going on. 🙂 Anyway, your card is GREAT and I cannot wait to see your other samples and uses with this set! Thanks for sharing and inspiring!
    OH! I laughed to read about your age and eyesight. I’ve crossed that bridge too but was amused to know how I “had realized” there was print on those polka dots; poor thing (ha ha!)!! Have a great day; cheers!! 🙂

  3. I can’t wait to get my hands on this stamp set! I love all the images in it and you’ve just proven to me that I definitely need it! I love how you used the sunburst image. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!
