I wasn't quite sure what kind of a design I wanted to create for my last WT challenge... at least as hostess. :) At first I thought I'd create something very "stampy" but then I reconsidered. That is just not me.
In the end I settled on a design that incorporated some of my favorite challenges, a stamping idea I've been wanting to try and lots of elements that make a design, well... "me". I hope you like it and are inspired to make this multi-challenge a fun one.
The stamped element that I've been wanting to try is creating a stamped and spritzed background on sticky back canvas. I've done lots of things with sticky-back canvas but don't believe I've done this before. I love the color and texture and how it turned out.
Here's some of the challenges I've incorporated into my project...
WT97 Background stamps
WT107 Never been inked stamps - my musical background
WT159 Spray It - my Glimmer Mist
Again, I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for playing along with the WAys to Use it Challenge over the years. I've enjoyed it, your comments and especially the creative inspiration of your designs immensely. The You Make my Heart Happy sentiment is for you. Thank you.
