Abstract Impressions

Abstract Impressions by judkajudy
 
I've been feeling out of the loop lately ... haven't bought any of the new swish and swirl stamps because I wasn't sure what to do with them.  Well, imagine my surprise to find a trendy stamp set when I went rummaging among the drawers of woodblock Hero Arts stamps that I own!

The swirly patterns stamped in neon inks are from an oldie (2003) wood block set by Hero Arts called Abstract Imprssions Fancy Notes. The bird is also an older Hero Arts stap, Bird With Long Legs.  Imagine, two trend setters in one card: neon inks and swirls!!

 I'm entering this card in the current CAS-ual Fridays challenge to use the color pallet of aqua, green and orange. I read somewhere that "white space" doesn't have to be white!!

Hope your weekend is going well and that you have some fun time to yourself!

How fun to find a really old stamp that is now on trend again! I love those three colors together, Judy, and that bird always puts a smile on my face! Cute card! :)

Such an adorable card, Judy! Wonderful colors together, and I love the inked bird stamped over the swirls with the colors showing through. The long legged bird is one of my favorites, too!

This certainly is an on trend card Judy, even if you've used "old" stamps. Such a great card.
