rules for life...

and another CHA sample...

This list of "rules" is one of the first stamps I designed for my 3rd release. The idea was brewing for a long time...

My thought is to do a mini book, with RULES as the theme...someday...

I also thought this would be a fun stamp for scrappers...
just cut out the rule that fits a photo...

This tag is a combination of LOTS of studio 490 stamps...some are new & some are from previous releases...
they all work together...just as I planned...


There's tim's film strip ribbon again...and on top of it is one of his new word sticks.

Here's a better look @ the background. It's a fun technique I discovered while playing with pigment inks & Perfect pearls, while getting my demo samples ready for CHA.



The background is pigment inks...red pepper & lettuce & also my fav sunflower sparkle Perfect Pearls.

I was suprised to get this look with the pigments, because they are an opaque ink, which gives great coverage over chipboard.

When combined with Perfect Pearls...the look is totally different...kind of chalky looking...I LIKE it!

***I see the inks are on sale @ EclecticPaperie, if you NEED some to play***I'm just saying...SALE!

I'll do a "how to", just as soon as I get some things checked off the TO DO NOW list!

Until then...
make art!

You're "to do" list must be complete by now ... Come on, we want to know how to do what you did! :o) I've used the pigments on GrungePaper, on the pinwheels I made for the ATT swap - but I really like your chalky look.
Your new stamps are wonderful, Wendy!
