Don’t follow the path…

I love this Hero Arts stamp – such a nice sentiment – perfect for a graduation or new job. Even though it is hard to see in the pictures, in real life it has a nice softness to the watercolor background, but the white embossing is still vivid enough to read.

I kept the embellishments very simple with washi tape, an arrow clip and staples.

A little trick here – I love the look of washi tape and how easy it is to use, but sometimes I don’t love the look on colored backgrounds – it doesn’t have the same punch as white. I really wanted this particular tape on the card, so I simply put it on a scrap of white cardstock, tore the edge and glued it to the card. Admittedly, it loses the weightless and easy-to-use appeal of washi, but I wanted to use the pattern and it was still pretty simple!

Ok, that is all from me for today – and maybe for the week! My parents are here visiting and things are pretty busy.
