Thinking of you...

Good morning!  Today is my day to post for the ScrapTownLady Blog. I can't believe what a great variety of stamps she carries in the ScrapTownLady store!  I chose to work with this fun Stampendous image today. Just thought something a bit 'girly' seemed like a good plan.



This image was so much fun to create with. I wish you could see it in real life.  There's a touch of sparkle, lots of gloss, and a nice, rich color.  The color was painted on, using Tim Holtz Distress Inks, and a water brush.  Reminded me of being a kid, and playing with my watercolors!  Painting was great therapy, too, as it's been a week of sadness, having lost a friend to cancer. KaiserCraft makes such gorgeous papers, and it was fun searching for just the right combination - it needed to look elegant, a bit vintage, and even a little sassy!  Used my Perfect Layers Rulers for that beautiful 1/8" white border (see sidebar for details). Hope you will head over to the store, and purchase this stamp yourself.  Can't wait to see your creations!

Designer's Tip:  If you are using a stamp that is larger than any acrylic blocks that you have, grab one of your Cuttlebug Plates!  The stamp will stick to it perfectly, it will wipe clean, and you won't have to invest in a larger block!  

Thanks for stopping by today!

Have a great day,
Patti J.
