Winner will receive a $10 gift certificate good toward Paperbag Studios goodies!!
Have a blessed day!
So....set with the challenge I put this card together making flowers from things that weren't designed to be flowers if you get my drift :0)
These Art Deco style rose type flowers were made up from elements from the Stitched and Tied plate shown below.
The main stamped image is 'Way We See', along side Spiral Bound (also available in CLING)and Sweet (available individually wood mounted or on the Little Feet plate.
Below is a close up shot of the layering of the 'flowers'.
All stamps by Paperbag Studios available direct from the USA or here in the UK at Happy Daze.
Please pop along to the challenge and have a go at winning the gift certificate by entering a piece of artwork. There are some more examples in the challenge blog post from members of the Paperbag Studios Stamping Design Team- I have a Stampbord piece shown using real daisies which some of you may not have seen before. The daisy stampbord was made some time ago (hence the style change) but still remains one of the few pieces I still like to look at. That little girl is so adorable.
Thankyou for stopping by. Have a great weekend. Hope its not too hot where you are....I've just started to melt here in my little room and its only 9.30am.
