Here we are on week 18 at Grungy Monday and you can learn more about the technique we are using right HERE! While visiting one of my blogging friends, Brenda, I learned of "Fashionable Stamping Challenges" which is a new challenge blog and Brenda just so happens to be one of the Design Team members. Stop by and take a look! Nice thing about challenges is that they are free! The lovely people of Simon Says Stamp and Show, has made it really easy with looking for "Tags."
Mr. Holtz. Even the scissors were cut and embossed from his sewing texture fades. I would have posted this yesterday, but it was driving me crazy that I felt something was needed in that right hand corner. Last night, just shortly before going to bed the bells and whistles went off and I thought little scissors or a snap! The paper is Tim's and I did mask around the dress from, so I could stamp on that image. I added Distress inks around the image and kept that mostly a lighter shade of pink. Added some embossed stitching.
Now about two things that I am excited about! I am going to be starting an online course with the wonderfully talented Lucy of True Colours. She does incredible work with moulds/molds and other amazing forms of art. There is still time and this will be so fun. Thank you Lucy for doing this! This morning when I popped over to Gingersnap Creations, I was so delighted to learn that my "Road" challenge piece was awarded a Ginger Gem! The stamps used for this were from Artistic Outpost.
