Creative Journey

I picked these stamps up at a craft sale recently and I love wooden and PA stamps so I put a couple of them to good use!!

Painted the hanger with chocolate pudding fresco paint and randomly added Irish cream.  Using the confetti stencil I added nougat paint.  I stamped the Hampton Arts face image and the Stampers Anonymous quote onto kraft card in brown timber stazon. Added an embellishment and fibres which I also picked up at the sale.

Think Monday, think ATC and more are asking to see faces this week, so I'm hoping this counts even though it's only half a face!!

Also Country View Crafts are asking for quotes or saying, but read the rules of this before you submit. My quote is from a T!m Holtz, stampers anonymous wooden stamp as shown above in the first photo.

And finally, Our Creative Corner want to see words, words, words!!

Just gorgeous, Sam - the neutrals are right up my street, as you know, and I love the splatters of paler paint... The quote is fantastic. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Our Creative Corner.
