We Match: Waffle Flower & Imagine Collaboration

Hello! The Artists in Residence for Imagine and Waffle Flower Crafts are doing a collaboration this month, and I am so excited about it. I was sent the adorable Enveloper Little Birdie Stamp Set, and I loved using it. Upon looking at some of their other sets, and I now have a nice sized wish list going of sets I would love to add to my collection. I decided to make a layout with the Little Birdie set, because it reminded me of  the matching Marimekko dresses that my daughter and I have. This layout also works for the Imagine Color of the Month, which is Pineapple.



The flowers on the dresses are very flat and only use one color. So after I stamped my images on to white cardstock with VersaFine ink in Majestic Blue, I used Memento Markers that are similar in colors to those on the dresses. And it took everything I have inside of me to NOT shade the flowers! I love to shade and blend when I color, but I really wanted to stay true to the fabric and keep the colors flat.

I created a mat around the white cardstock with Banana Pepper cardstock from My Colors, and I stamped my sentiment down the side with Habanero VersaFine ink. I also wrote in the date my photos were taken with my Danube Blue Memento Marker. My blue base cardstock was looking a little too plain, so I sprayed it with New Sprout Fireworks! Spray and used my On Point Glue to add white sequins.

I'm really happy with how well the stamped images from Waffle Flower went with our dresses. I think the stamps showcased the photos perfectly, and my daughter and I now have a fun layout to remind us of when we bought our matching outfits. A big thank you to Waffle Flower Crafts for sharing your wonderful stamps with the Imagine AIRS! And thank you for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Blog Hop Finale

Hello! It's time for the finale of the DecoArt and Stampendous blog hop. Have you enjoyed yourself this week? I bet you've got some new techniques that you want to try. I know I do! I am super stoked about my project for today. And it solves a dilemma that we've had in my kids' room for a while.

What you see above is 2 pieces of PVC. And some fab DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics! So, what am I doing with PVC, you ask? Well, my mom bought my son a light saber(Darth Vader's) for Christmas, and he wanted to display it, but we weren't really sure where in his room, and how. I wanted something cooler than hooks, and we thought it would be neat to have the light saber vertical, instead of horizontal. Plus, there was a fab spot for it if it hung in that direction. So, my husband came up with the PVC pip idea, and I altered the pieces.



The end cap holds the base, and the small piece of pipe holds up near the end. And the 2 pieces are spaced out enough so that it's easy…
