Simon Says Stamp and Show Your...

Oooh it's the first Monday of 2011... 
so I'm bringing you right onto this week's theme at Simon Says Stamp and Show which is....

Your Newest Stamp!!!


My newest stamp is a couple of crafty secrets sets, although they're an older set I have only had them a few days... so set to work and decided to make a vintage hanging using sweet stuff. I started with some of Wendy's magnificent art parts, covered them with some gorgeous cosmo cricket's circa 1934 patterned papers and inked all the edges with distress inks, I've used a cotton bud to ink the holes.


The background was created by stamping directly onto sticky back canvas and I then heat embossed to give a red work effect. I have used distress inks to add colour to the background by masking the images.


The adorable birds are paper pieced and raised on adhesive foam. I've then added a few flower's created using Tattered florals die with pearl centre's. Finished off with a bow of seam binding and a little vintage lace sprayed with sand glimmer mist.


Hope it inspires and why not pop round the rest of the team to see their newest stamp!!!

Oh my, Kim, how fabulous is this - totally sweet while retaining that retro Cosmo Cricket/Crafty Secrets look. I totally love how the image came out that was stamped on canvas. What kind of ink did you stamp with? The image came out great. Love that circa 1934 paper and the way you paper pieced the birdies too!

Thanks sweet Linda, I used fired brick distress ink and red embossing powder, although the powder lost it's shine it came out much better then I had anticipated!!!
