Mixed Bouquet

Another card using the Mixed Bouquet stamp set. This one was very quick and easy and the portion mounted on the red cardstock on the left forms part of a "One Sheet Wonder" (otherwise known as an "OSW") made using the set. Here's a photo of part of the OSW:-

If you haven't tried this technique before, it is very straight forward... and the name is a hint! It involves taking a blank sheet of card and covering the entire sheet with various stamped images in colours of your choice. The images can be quite random or more "pre-planned" - it's all a matter of personal preference and trying a few different sheets will give you an idea of the effects you can achieve. Thereafter, you can cut and use portions of the sheet of card to make cards or other projects. I've made three cards with my OSW thus far and I've still got two-thirds of the OWS left to use. It's also a good way of getting the ball rolling if you're having a "creativity block". I find it almost impossible NOT to create at least a few half decent projects with parts of an OSW.

The right hand side of this card was stamped with the outline leaves from the Mixed Bouquet set.
