I Just Got CRAZY

Flight Of The Arrows

Item Number: D1578
Remember a couple of days ago when I was using this stamp set to make this card?
Well this card is scrap lifted right out the New CTMH Spring / Summer 2014 Catalog (Active Feb 1, 2014) on page 96.  There is another card on the same page of the catalog that uses the same stamp that I wanted to make. 
It was a little more challenging.
I love the arrows but on the card they use 3 different colors for the arrows and the stamp is 2x6.  I know you can use a masking technique to get the same effect but I get ink everywhere just stamping like a normal personal – add masking take to the deal and I might have to re-paint the walls!
So I did something RADICAL!  I cut the stamp set!
I took 2 rows of the arrows and separated them from the rest of the arrows. The other 3/4 of the stamp is still in pristine condition.
With the smaller 1/4 section of the stamp I was able to create the look I wanted without getting ink everywhere. 
I will tell you my daughter thought I lost my mind.  It did not hurt has bad as I thought it would.  Smile  Since I was careful with the cutting this stamp is still very useable! 
It makes me happy!
