Studio 490 inspired

Hi everyone,

It is the beginning of an awesome new week! This week at Simon Says Stamp and Show, we have something very cool to share with you! We have a  special guest designer and not just any guest designer, we have Wendy Vecchi! How cool is that? This Wednesday she will give us 2 exclusive tutorials! So don't forget to check back in on Wednesday! The challenge of this week is to create a piece inspired by Wendy Vecchi (Studio 490) in any way whatsoever. I had so much fun creating mine! Love to see yours!

I felt like bright colors, nice cheerful and happy. Soon I realized that I wanted to create a canvas for this project. So much fun to play with Wendy's products!

First I colored with different alcohol inks the Clicker Cutts Flowers. Really  nice material and goes so well with alcohol inks!

Then I used white pattern paper (that is slightly thicker and stronger than tissue paper) stamped al over with the awesomely beautiful Wendy stamps.

After some stamping and adding some paint accents it looked like this. Unfortunately I'm very bad at that taking pictures when I'm busy. I then all focused and in the creative process!

To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers. This prize will go to a random entry. So go over to the Stamp and Show Challenge blog, let the DT members inspire you and join in the fun! And don't forget to check back in on Wednesday for those exclusive tutorials from Wendy Vecchi!

Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!

Hi Sandra...I love your Wendy inspired piece! The colors are vibrant. I also love your use of stamping on tissue and then incorporating it into your piece. Your Wendy flowers and foliage look fantastic! I also want to thank you for the very nice comments you left on my blog. Hugs, Candy

Okay - I have just got to steal this - what a wonderful art page for my journal - you are the tops in my book Sandra - I can't help it - you are so cute I just have to call you Sannie - Sandra just sounds so formal!
