Topflight Stamps - Pinky Inky

Hi Everyone,

I immediately fell for the inspiration picture from Inkspirational (see below) about Yayoi Kusama, a contemporary Japanese artist, who was supposed to exhibit this year at the New York Botanical Garden, but unfortunately the exhibit was cancelled, courtesy of COVID-19....

 I literally had this beautiful octopus stamp now for years and it was still waiting to be inked up....Immediately thought of it and pulled it out of hiding....

I used watercolor paper and stamped the huge octopus on it. It really is enormous! It did not quite fit on my A2 card. But most of it did. Good enough. I colored it with water colors. I used a little strip of designer paper on the side and used the same paper to heat emboss the sentiment.

From llamas to versatile you are. Love this image, however, you must be really sad that the NY exhibition was cancelled. Remarkable coloring on this massive stamp. Must have taken you forever to finish.

Der Octupus sieht ein wenig aus wie ein Hirschkopf an einer Wand im entsprechenden Lokal!!!
Ich finde ihn lustig.

Mirror Image Stamping with So Suzy and the MISTI

Hi Everyone, I am so happy to be part of this wonderful event - the collaboration between So Suzy and the MISTI from My Sweet Petunia doing mirror image stamping.  This event is going on for the ENTIRE  MONTH! We are demonstrating the  Mirror Image Stamp    which coordinates with the Misti Stamping Tool! All month long, different bloggers will post a card using the  Mirror Image Stamp .  In my tutorial today, I will show you how use the  Mirror Image Stamp  on your cards. You can basically double your stamp supplies that way! The  mirror image stamp  is  a 4.25" x 5.5" piece of red rubber with no foam backing. So much larger than the other mirror image stamps out there and therefore much more useful!
