STAMPlorations - Stencil Sunday

and this Sunday I'm feeling green - in a very positive way.

I made a pair of ATC's

I made a these using color powder, water and
and then just doodled the edges.

There is still little time to link to the current 
Mixed media challenge at STAMPlorations:

By entering you'll have a change to win:
$15 gift certificate OR choice of any 
2 ARTplorations stencils to the winner
and choice of 1 ARTplorations stencil to the top picks.

The theme is always anything mixed media goes except a card 
and you must use at least one stencil (any brand) in your project.

Thanks for hopping here and 
I'll hope to see your MM art at challenge.

Simply Loving Style

I bought these fab new stamps from Sin City,
plate is perfect for me since I have 2 daughters 
and I can see how many ways these stamps can 
be combined /used in future.

To my first made I was inspired from a tag,
that was hanging from my daughters new shirt.

Olispa jo kesä...

Lunta vaan jaksaa tulla ja pakkasta pitää...
Haaveissa taitaa kyllä olla kesä,

Kesäkaiffari väritelty Inktenseillä ja
luonnoksen nappasin P*skiksesta, näyttääpi tältä:

Vähän sitä käänsin :=)

Mukavaa viikonloppua!
