Good Notes

*please see below for The {Stamps} of Life new release*


Polly is our hostess this week over at Stampotique Designer's Challenge and here's her challenge:

I love Pink, whether it's a bright fushcia pink or a pretty rose pink - and teamed up with Turquoise well, they sure do make a bold statement!! This colour combination creates a bright, cheerful and a beautiful feminine palette that also reminds me of the 1980's and what a fab decade that was for music!! So break out the pinks, turquoises and not forgetting a splash of black and white and join in with this weeks challenge.


I stepped out of my comfort zone again this week by using some sprays on my background.  I'm not a "messy" stamper at all but I love how this came out and I've got some fun new products to play with.

I stamped my image before spraying on the background and then I used my versamark pen to emboss inside the flower petals.


Come join us over at Stampotique Designer's Challenge for your chance to win a $30 gift certificate for stamps.
