In the US, we are celebrating Mother's Day and we know that is one the toughest jobs out there. I'm so grateful for my mum - she's my rock and she's always there for me! And I'm so lucky to be friends with many of you who are already amazing mums. You are all an inspiration and role-model... But to get back to why we are really here...Uniko Studio is re-visiting their set today Background Builders: Round in Circles. I decided to just work with one of the stamps in this set and pair it with a sentiment from A Gift For You.
I always love to see how to stretch my stamps and the little vertical striped circle is full of possibilities. Stamp it one way, then stamp it the other way...and you have yourself some gingham patterns. I stamped me some balloons and carefully masked a bunch of them, and then shaded them in with some color pencils. If you are interested in a tutorial, let me know and I will post one up
Each balloon also got some Wink of Stella treatment, but my camera is not really picking up any of this fabulous shimmer and bling! For good measure there are also some mint colored sequins. Because sequins just make everything happy.
Hope you feel inspired with some samples. So some housekeeping: Bev is going to draw a winner for the stamp set AND the matching digital designer paper. You have until 11:59p BST May 14th to leave comments along the blogs. In the meantime, I'm sending you off to fabulous, amazing Taheerah. Here the whole list for easy navigation ...
I hope you like what you're seeing. Hope to see your creations soon! PS. Simon Says has a new fabulous website, but in the process some of the inlinkz pictures are not quite fixed. But the links work, so feel free to click along to see the products.
