Hello everyone: I'm just about ready for the Winter to be over, as I get more.....err.....more "mature", the cold months seems to just drag and drag along and in the mean time the majority of us, are stuck indoors, looking out our windows to our barren and snow covered flower beds, hoping that soon, the firsts signs of renewal and rebirth, will start peeking out of the frozen ground to delight us with color and beauty. So, when the CASology challenge announced the Cue Word for this week was EGG, my mind went immediately to Easter Eggs and this sweet image from Lili of the Valley.
I stamped this image onto a panel of Canson water color paper with Stazon Jet Black ink and colored it with the aqua painter and SU markers, I added some grass to it with a teeny stamp from Art Impressions. I sponged a bit of Broken China distress ink around this ducklings and their mom to give the scene some depth. Then I embossed this panel with the retired SU Tulip Frame embossing folder, that is it, I didn't want to stamp a sentiment here, I felt it would disturb the main image, instead, I stamped the greeting inside.
This sentiment is from the dollar bin at my local craft store and the Daffodil is from a retired Flourishes set called "Signs of Spring".
Here are a couple of pictures of this sets.
I buy unmounted rubber stamps if they offer them, I just trim the excess rubber and put some double sided tape in the back to stick them on the MISTI or acrylic blocks, I get the best impressions all the time, like with photopolymer stamps, only this are not clear.
Here is the Cue Word for this week's CASology challenge, hope you will give it a try.
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping, hugs.
