Simon Says Stamp & Show ~ Whatever Makes You Happy

It's MONDAY!!!
which brings me straight onto the challenge over at


"Whatever Makes You Happy..."


Sooo many crafty things make me happy... I just couldn't fit any more onto my piece LOL.


I have been eager to create a spool with Wendy's Art Parts since I got them and also had to incorporate a vast selection of Wendy Vecchi fabulous stamps ~ Botanical art, Alphabetically art, Nature's art, Ticket to art,


I used Brilliance pigment ink moonlight white as a base to make the distress ink colours lighter, little did I know they would be sooo much paler and slightly shimmery with the brilliance ink. I must have applied ten layers of mustard seed dsitress ink on this large flower not that you can see it, haha! I then stamped patterns in both Coffee and Black archival ink.
HAD to add one of Tim Holtz Fanciful buttons... gorgeous!!!


I've used sticky back canvas for around the spools inked, stamped and secured with memo pin.

Hope it inspires and why not pop round the rest of the teams Happy Creations!!!
