I'm a Guest Designer for FireCracker Designs this Month!!



I was recently asked if I would do a guest spot for a wonderful stamp company called Firecracker Designs by Pamela. It made me think about how much I used to love using stamps in my scrapwork and how I hadn't used stamps too often in my work lately. I have to admit I really enjoyed incorporating stamps into my work again for this months projects! I chose the Golden Daffodils stamp set to work with for my projects along with a butterfly/dragonfly stamp set. The above l/o is the first project I made up for the guest spot. I simply stamped the images on some white cardstock and then coloured them in with water colour pencils. Then I lightly brushed the colour pencil area with a Q-tip dipped in water. Below are some close-up pic's of the my first project using this fun stamp set......


You can find Pamela's blog piece here ~~~> Pamela's Gallery and the FireCracker Designs website HERE ....check out the left side of the web page for the wonderful array of stamps available! The papers I used to make up this l/o are by BoBunny (Snowy Serenade) and K&Company, the crystal flourishes are by Zva Creative. I'll be posting some of my other projects done with this same stamp set throughout the month.

Thanks for having a peek!
