Creative Friday #85 and Hello to 2 new Members
Two new members on my little blog - I can't believe it! For a long time membership was kind of flat, so this is very exciting!
Michelle is on the design team for Simon Says and loves vintage.
Mary has been in blog land since March 2012 and uses a variety of styles - even has given mixed media a try!
There are treasures to find on each blog - perhaps you want to check them out yourself!
I choose this as my welcome picture:
I usually choose some modern artist for that - this is different. It is a "collage" of used glass molds for glass blowing. I found this on a recent visit to Vermont, where I visited the Simon Pearce workshop in Quechee. So it's kind of vintage, with a modern feel to it....I hope you like it!
With a color inspiration over at Creative Friday like this I can't resist....
Here is my card:
The background squares I cut from left over rubber snippets (when you buy sheets of stamps) and stamped them in yellows and pinks. The hippos are Rubber soul and the sentiment is Papertrey -Sketched Shapes. I used enamel accents for the eyes.
I mulled this over for a couple of days if if this could be put into the Pixie's Crafty Snippets Playground, but I decided it qualifies, since I used left over rubber pieces to create my own background stamps - after all snippets are snippets, right?
