Amongst the flowers
Nothing for a month then two posts in two days!
Thank you so much for the feedback on the stamps and work yesterday. Its great hearing all your thoughts. Much appreciated! If yoou haven't seen the new images yet, please check out the link in the post following this one.
Here is a quickmake using a few 'oldies' (World all her own, Jasmin and Crown) plus the brand new GIANT DAISY.
Gingersnap Creations have a Random Redhead theme of 'Tribute to Teens' which I thought this fitted well. Reality is probably more along the lines of 'LEAVE ME ALONE YOU CAN'T POSSIBLY UNDERSTAND' *door slam* instead of the quote I've used here lol, but we can all dream :0)
Giant Daisy #3058 (just the flower head)is huuuuge, as you can see if you already have Jasmin you can see the scale. The wood mount is 5" wide!)This stamp was based on a daisy from my garden. There was a tiny group of five hidden near the hedge.... and I couldn't ignore them so added this one to the collection :0)
This Giant Daisy actually looks more like a Gerber here don't you think? It all depends on what colours you choose. To create the long stem and leaves I used chalks for a quick sweeping effect. The Giant Daisy was stamped twice, cutting up one to place over the front of Jasmin to give more of a 3D effect and so she sits more comfortably :0). Then finishing with white embossed words and a crown (left white to show up nicely on the black paper).
All from my collection of stamps at Stampotique Originals with whom you can place orders directly.
Also a huuuuge range of the Stampotique images can be found at Happy Daze here in the UK. Moira is taking pre orders now for when the NEW RANGE of stamps arrive from the States.
There are also a few other outlets here in the UK, but I'm not sure yet who is stocking what.
See you tomorrow if you are about amongst the blogs with more ideas, this time one of which is using a new stamp design from Maryse Carrier combined with older images of Daniel T's, Jill P's and mine.
