I hope everybody had a FANTASTIC 4th of July! Now that the cloud of smoke from all the fireworks in the neighborhood has drifted off, it's time for me to get back to my kind of fun!! This is the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge for the week of July 2. I have about 15 sets of Waltzingmouse stamps, but sometimes I still feel a little limited because alot of them are the "nestie friendly" and don't feature images. I could easily have put a few flowers on the design, but I wanted to use as many WMS as I could.
I really like when I see designers use stamp images in other ways than they were intended so I thought you might like to see how I used an image from Vintage Labels One to make my card border. This stamp has a vintage look that easily translates to my Halloween motif, and instead of using the image as an "eyelet" hole for a tag I turned it into a border filling the "holes" with a little bling.
I cut a strip of wired ribbon, then pulled the bottom wire from both sides and twisted them together to make a frilly ring ribbon to matt my images. I added a rhinestone flourish to show my little stamped witch spreading a touch of Halloween magic about. I hope you like it!
