I didn't like this stamp

I bought this stamp on my shopping expedition on Saturday and I got it home and decided I didn't like it any more. It is Aspire by Penny Black and I thought it was one of their brushstroke stamps, but it isn't, it's tiny little flowers.

But then Jody (TexasJodyLynn) showed me some cards she had made with the set and it was the one that I had liked when she had made her cards, so I had bought the right stamp.

You just have to use water to spray on the stamp to make it run slightly. So this is my first attempt with the stamp. I'm not 100% happy with it, but then as you are learning if you read my blog, I tend not to be happy with a lot that I make, lol. The ribbon and the layered piece are chocolate not black!

I do like the cuttlebugged piece, but I didn't make the stamp run enough. And wow, I am finally using my primas! Don't hoard is my mantra at the moment, because I just get bored with things so quickly, I need to use them up!

Hi Alli, how are you keeping. Miss you over at The Shack, but at least I can visit you here. Your card is lovely, as usual. Don't be so hard on yourself and trust your talent. You have it in abundance!
