brand NEW studio 490...

stamps!

finally...I can share...
I'm so excited...

the first set is something that has been on my mind for quite a while...

I wanted something a little different...

just funny/funky sayings, with a fresh new face...

this is set # LCS072...titled

"she spoke of art"...

here's my thoughts on each image...
starting @ the top...

it's not easy being me...
this is my brother's quote...

he says it a lot...
I stole it from him!

I am NOT bossy...
this is MY quote...
I stole it from ME...

it's a fact...
now think about it...
seriously...

you KNOW this is true!
why not say it?

a fresh new cartoon-ish lady...
and she has a coordinating art part too...
yippee!

I sized her to be 2 inches tall...
so that she works well on cards,
ATC's and on altered art projects...

I love her so so much!~~

I have used her LOTS of times already...
and all the sayings on the set
coordinate with her expression...

little pills label...
this is mini...
like 3/4 inch square...
it's a perfect fit for tim's corked vials...

the label is from an actual vintage pill bottle that we found @ a flea market...
I LOVE to preserve the past!

I have also stamped it, clear embossed it & used it flat on projects...
instead of using it on the corked vials...
for another option...

I'll show that another day...

don't make delete you...
this flat out makes me laugh...

I ***think*** I may have said this a time or 12...

she heard...
this is fun for putting a funky twist on your art...
anything goes with this saying!
anything @ all!

somedays...
this is another saying that's good for altered style art...
LOTS of possibilities with this one...

take 3...
perfect to use with the little pills label...
anyone can take 2...

I say...take 3!

and here's the set
all 9 stamps on the storage sheet...


and just a peek @ the cartoonish lady stamped on the coordinating art part & inked...

I'm LOVING the alcohol ink pen replacement nibs for inking small areas...

they do not fray...
they are flippin' AWESOME for really tiny areas,
like the bow, her cheeks & her collar...
I'm using them daily now...

they are great for adding shading too...
like on flowers...




now it's your turn...

tell me what you think...

while I...

make art!
wendy
WAIT...don't go yet...
do you think the cartoon lady needs a man in her life?
coming soon to a blog near you...
stay tuned!

Love that woman's expression! Some days at work that is just how i feel. The other about some days being a waste of make-up cracks me up. I wish I could delete some people at work some days. Great set!

Cher~ said...

I LOVE this set and it will be a MUST in my collection. I love the lady too and a man would be a fun addition for her (but not NEEDED, though I'll admit I'd be lost without mine LOL)

Wendy, I'm late but life has been...well kicking me in the rear however, I wanted to (actually stop instead of stalking) wish you a very happy, healthy & prosperous New Year! One of my best highlights of 2011 was spending that Saturday in April in your workshop (Shawnee, KS). Big hugs!

Missusg said...

and i'd say no she doesn't need a man in her life.. looks like she has alreacy had one.. perhaps a boy toy though!!! might put that smile right back on her face!!

inkytoes said...

oh wow! i have been away from my regular blogs for a while taking care of a family member recovering from a stroke and this is my first day back. these stamps are great.
i don't think she needs a man. but i have a feeling there may be one lurking in the shadows waiting to be revealed.

Does she need a man? Yes, I think she might!
