Not So Sweet
Last year, I bought this adorable Whipper Snapper image in Wisconsin. It hadn't seen ink until this weekend. Not because I didn't like the stamp...just because I wanted to color the image perfectly because I like it so much.
So, when I saw this week's Inspiration Challenge #119, I immediately thought of this image. Could I do it justice? NO! I tried, and tried and tried through several attempts. I wanted to use the same bold color scheme as the inspiration piece, but I found it was too many colors and it seemed entirely too busy with color.
My final attempt is what you see here. I decided to reduce the color palette to the colors you'd find in a roll of classic Life Savers...still bold, just less busy.
I still remain layout challenged too.
But hey, I learned a lot from the process, I think. Back on the shelf this stamp goes. I'll hopefully try it again later, with much more success.
