ARTY SIGN


I have been very inspired by the work of people like Linda and Hels using the Studio 490 stamps so bought myself a basic set to get started (the butterfly and the leaves). The flowers are more "in the style of" being Hero Arts clear stamps which give a really crisp image.

I came across this quote not long ago and thought it was really powerful, so hey presto a sign is born!! Used a little wood frame/tray thingy I had in the cupboard, painted it blue, printed my saying onto polka dot paper to match the spotty flowers and leaves. Lots of layering up on little foam pads and I'm quite pleased with the result!!

Friend asked, why isn't it pink? I said ... a) sadly, not everything can be pink, b) my pink curtains have blue in them. Simple.

Grat idea Rosie. Love the whole thing. Thing about clear stamps - you defo get what you pay for in terms of clarity and longevity, and Hero are right up there! I like the blue very uch, dare I suggest that pink may have been too frivolous for such powerful prose?

Not everything can be pink (What the heck? lol)? Okay, but if it is something this lovely and true then blue is perfect!
