Simon Says Stamp and Show are challenging us to use our favourite stamp. This was so easy for me to choose as I have a very favourite stamp that I use over and over again. Can you guess which one it is?! Perhaps the hand is a big give away! Hels' Sunday Stamper challenged us to use blue and brown this week so I thought I'd combine the two. I had such a great time using my favourite stamps - a bit like being a kid in a sweet shop!
I took one of Wendy's new Art Parts and covered the frame in Vintage Photo Distress Stain. The background was Tumbled Glass Distress Stain and the hand had Spun Sugar Distress Stain on it. I won't go into every detail because it will take too long but the stamps are all stamped onto Grunge Paper with Jet Black Archival Ink.
I have used some ideaology and even a press-stud donated from a pair of Tom's jeans! I principally used Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers Vintage Photo and Peeled Paint Distress Inks.
I added a little scalloped trim as a shelf My second favourite stamp is the dotty stamp that I probably over use and so I used it twice in this. My very favourite stamps to use are Studio 490 once, mainly because they are so incredibly versatile and combine together so brilliantly! I didn't use any from the Funky Flowers set (which is another set I probably over use!) so I could always make a companion piece for this one showcasing more of Wendy's stamps... mmm... more ideas!
The sets I used were these (I have probably forgotten one!)
