Two things you need to know about me before you read my post.
1. I have the attention span of a flea.
2. I can't sit still for more than a few minutes at a time. I am always doing something.
Now that you know that...
Last week StampNation design team member Allison Cope announced that she was going to periscope using the SOA Beautiful World collection and she was going to ask viewers for input along the way. What a fun idea! I had deleted Periscope from my phone (see #s 1 & 2 above). I added it back to my phone just so I could watch Ally.
Though I missed the first few minutes, I'm thrilled that I joined. I loved watching the process as her card unfolded. I sat (walked/paced) and watched the entire thing, over an hour (4 minutes is my usual video cut off). Not only that, but once the video was over I went up to my stamp room and COLORED. Who am I and what have you done with Mama Mo? haha It's not perfect and I'm ok with it.
My card was heavily inspired by Ally's. You all can view her card here. I was especially drawn to the color combo, one I wouldn't ever think to use on my own. I also pulled from her layout, stamping and even the little stamped image that you see around the butterflies. The SOA Beautiful World collection is just gorgeous, I just can't get enough of it. If you weren't luck enough to grab a box before it sold out, don't worry, these products will be available for purchase down the road :)
Thanks so much for the inspiration Ally!
Have a great week friends.
