a set a day...#2...

stop the press!!
who uploaded this???
HOW did this bigger peek show up???


oh well...
pretend you didn't see it...OK?

I'm happy to report that it's day #2!!!


presenting studio 490 brand new set #2...

this is another large set called...

evidence of art...

the tree is giant sized...
it makes a good background, inked & stamped...
just as is...

I'm wanting to clear emboss it, then ink over it...
or maybe blast it with some color wash???

this is also a good stamp to use with Ranger's watermark resist pad, to make a subtle background...

I plan to add some random flowers...
and hang words from the branches...
and don't forget the crow from yesterday's pill box...
cut him out...
add him to the tree...

I like the tree stamped partially hanging off the project too...

I want to stamp it on black, using the gold paint dabber, for a more elegant effect...
I think that would be good for a wedding or maybe a sympathy card...
(I ALWAYS have a hard time with sympathy cards...)

or...
it can be stamped then embossed with gold or silver...

"the purpose of life" saying is fun when used as the main ingredient for your art...(card front?)

I also like it stamped lightly (olive archival or maybe a distress color) with a solid image stamped (jet black archival ) & layered over it...
it then becomes the the base for a collage...

I plan to use it for thank you cards...
with the inside to read...
a handwritten...
YOU DID.

"evidence of art" can be stamped on the back of your art & it's a perfect spot for your signature...

I will be using it as the title for an art journal...
(coming soon!)...

the word "evidence" can be used alone for hidden journaling...

or on a pocket that contains EVIDENCE...
that makes sense...
(coming soon!)

"specimen B"...
I like that one used with the spider or any ODD "things" or critters...


and for sure it works with something CAGED...
or something/someone in the bottle...

the B can be used in memo pins...

it's also a perfect fit under tim's new mini book plate die...
I love it when things "work"...

and it's a good size for ATC's...

"wonderful world" just makes me smile & it's sooo true!

I KNOW...I KNOW...
you want to see the new art parts...
I think you did...see first photo...

I'm still thinking about the best way to show them...
gotta figure something out...

I don't want to show the new art part with an
un*revealed stamp...
God forbid!
or used with "someone else's NEW product"...
God forbid!

I'll get on it...
and figure something out...
soon...

but I will say that the new art parts were designed to work with our current art parts and BELIEVE ME...
I have some surprises coming...

they were sized to fit________ and ________...
and to be used with_______...

this is one HARD TO KEEP secret...
probably THE HARDEST!

THANKS so much for taking the time to comment...
I LOVE to hear your thoughts...
I'm thrilled that you like my new baby...
you make my heart happy...

now I'm off to ...

make art,
wendy
see you tomorrow for #3!

This tree has endless possibilities - and I love anything with a curve in it - I have an aversion to straight lines. Love the journalling too.

Helen said...

This stamp set is incredible. I love that purpose of life stamp, and the tree...... you are amazing.

Outstanding, another great stamp set!! Love that tree!!!! Can't wait to see more and those art parts!!

ellen vargo said...

OMG that tree is delicious... I'm picturing little mini frame charms hanging from the branches with tiny photos in them (like a family or friend tree). And if that secret is SO hard to keep... go ahead... just tell us... we won't tell.. promise! LOL... yeah right... have a good!

PattiA said...

I LOVE the tree. I also love that it inspires you with so many ideas.
