Hi friends! Necessity is the mother of invention and that is how today’s lesson came to be…
Some friends and I attended a stamp show last weekend and my friend Tracey asked if she could try out the stamps I designed for Rubber Stamp Tapestry as well as a few peg stamp sets. I grabbed a few of my favorites to bring (Brambly Rose, Muscari & Hyacinth Boarder, Cherry Blossom and Prickly Pear) because I really love these sets and they are, in my opinion, the most effortless and intuitive to use. While Tracey was stamping I was watercoloring on some watercolor postcards I packed and that’s when inspiration struck. Tracey asked to borrow a brush and I noticed I had a rake and a deerfoot stippler in my set so I handed them to her, told her what they were for and before you know it she had a sweet motif in her art journal. I decided to copy her card and share the idea with you. Thanks for the inspiration Tracey! You can see how to in the video below!
