The world keeps spinning and gives us another Monday, so I'm here to share my new creation for Simon Says Stamp & Show. I just want to say I'm still so honoured to be part of this fantabulous Design Team. Every week - I just luuuuurve it! My big heartfelt thanks to ALL the team for making it such an amazing experience. This week we are in a TRAVEL mood...! Last year in The Netherlands, I bought a pair of children's hand carved clogs which have been sitting in my craft room for ages, begging me for a makeover. I lived in The Netherlands for 14 years and still waffle to myself in Dutch so I decided on a tribute to The Flatlands à la Wendy Vecchi style... à la Blue Dutch Delft style!
Nature's Art set in Cobalt Archival ink. No acrylic block, I pressed the stamp against the form of the shoe. It was a bit scary on such a white surface but you just have to be brave and go for it! I also stamped the leaves onto Grunge Paper and cut them out for later...
Live and Make Art set make great florals and you can stamp your heart and soul into them, if you fancy! I painted some Grungeboard white and went for gingham and polka dots. Those checks look just like real fabric! If you haven't tried Wendy's stamps yet, you should! You can indulge in the whimsical or flowery...I love both. Let me tell you they all ink up beautifully and create really wonderful impressions.
Nature's Art, made centre stage. I stamped him in Stazon Midnight Blue ink onto Clearly for Art. The flexible and transparent quality of CFA allowed me to add colour and dimension without overpowering my little clog. I think he looks just dandy perching on the nose!
blog and see all the fabulous fingerwork from the rest of the Design Team! And you have GOT to be here next time because it is something rather special...
For the second year in a row, Simon Says Stamp and Show and The Simon Says Stamp Challenge are joining forces to bring you a SUPER blog-hop and Treasure Hunt to celebrate the approaching Fall and Winter holidays.
