Welcome to My World

Hi, today sees the first challenge of the New Year with Gingersnaps.  We are lucky enough to have as our sponsor Stampotique who are offering a $30 voucher to the winner.........woo hoo........ This week we ask you to use A Set or a Line of Stamps.  For further inspiration please visit Gingersnaps (see my sidebar) where the rest of the Gingers and Visiting Artists have come up with some fabulous examples.



I have to admit to going a bit wild with my DT piece, but sometimes you just have to don't you..............lol  The background was created with acrylic paints swooshed about with Baby Wipes then with my fingers swooshed some glitter to help create the cosmos.  Stamps used are all from Stampotique (details are on Gingersnaps Blog).


As we are all about using scraps etc this month I have had these Pyramid cards ages and very rarely use them so have done some very simple stamping and glittering.


Stampotique stamps used are: Walk, Bird Legs, and Cake Plant.

Hoping you will join in with us and show us your own unique style and don't forget the $30 prize voucher.....
Take care and thank you for popping in.  Hugs Annette xx

The pyramid cards are my favorite. I love the contemporary design with the whimsical birds. You are making the most out of scraps and recycling-new word is repurposing I guess. Anyway, great work.
