I want to make a garden!
Are all of you familiar with Wendy Vecchi ... her blog, her art, and her stamps? If you're not you need to go look http://studio490art.blogspot.com/
(sorry, I'm still trying to figure out how to attach an active link, can anyone help me?)
I love her work because she uses all my favorite colors, her flowers always make me smile, and her stamps are so much fun to play with.
It was time for a little break from all the household tasks today, so I decided to try my hand at one of her flowers.
I stamped on grunge paper, cut out the design, colored them with distress inks, then the fun part ... bending, rolling and shaping the petals and leaves ... and voila, my flower! The most fun of all is trying to decide what to use as the center ... so many possibilities!! I used an ideaology sprocket wrapped with fluffy fiber.
Frenzy Stamper has a good variety of her stamps in stock if anyone wants to try their hand creating a garden!!
Think I hear the washer and dryer calling me ... guess I better wash the ink off my fingers and get back to work ...
