metal to the max...

once again I'll say...
I LOVE rubber stamps because they are so versatile...

We know we can use them on cardstock, chipboard & grunge...

Donna showed us earlier this week that they are very fun on fabric too...

Now Hels Sheridan has taken them to the max with Ten Seconds Studio metal...

I about fainted when I saw this...
It's BEAUTIFUL!



The metal rose is so cool...
but the heart really did me in...

I LOVE it...

She's lucky that she's in the UK...
or I'd run over while she was in the shower & swipe it...

She sent us a closer look...
with AMAZING details...

lots of texture from the metal & grunge...
each element is PERFECT & awesome......

How cool that my "art" stamp is a perfect fit in tim's ornate plate!



THANKS SO MUCH Hels...for sharing this...

Ok...I'm off to sunny California...

it's pouring rain here with lots of thunder & lightening...oh joy!

we get to shop a bit today and tomorrow morning too...I'm EXCITED!

I LOVE to SHOP!

I get to demo...I LOVE IT!

I get to see friends...I LOVE IT!

Remember the sale @ eclecticPaperie is good thru Sunday and as evidenced above...
stamps are versatile!

I'll be back on Tuesday...
no guarantees that I can post while I'm gone...
but I WILL TRY!

But hey...
I can TWEET! I'll do that with mini updates!

Have a great weekend.

I plan to...

make art! and shop! and get inky and see the sun...yippee!

Wendy: I'd love to know what kind of metal she used for this piece. Did she use various thicknesses and where is it found. I adore the rose and the heart. Such clever stuff. Maybe she'd do a little tutorial for us.
