Simon Says.... Wendy....

...aha, the theme over at Simon Says Stamp & Show this week is to show some Wendy Vecchi stylee art. Well, of course, au naturellement indeedily, I lurve Wendy Vecchi and anything Studio 490 stylee... so I set about making a little something as an entry... and then... lo! I got a block! I know, how can I lose the old Mojo half way through playing with Art Parts and 490 stamps!!! But it happened, so, I walked away from the desk and sat and growled for a while, sulking in fact.




When I returned, the old Mojo was still being reluctant to show its face, so, being as I am a bit stubborn, I decided to crack on anyway and just enjoy myself with all the goodies I had assembled on my desk. So, Clearly For Art... love the stuff... can't get enough of it... and my little clear butterfly was looking rather splendid, stamped in Coffee Archival and all that. Then I had an attack of the sausage fingers and managed to wipe all the stamped bit off... so I was left with a rather manky looking butterfly. But! Layered over the top of a Grungeboard one, he looks kinda goldy in colour, so he stayed.




I had tried to do a bit of muted stamping on the base of the Art Part circle and bodged that too... it isn't very visible... so instead I just stamped a dictionary def. text in black Archival and that covered up that oopsie-daisy. I stamped the Spider in the wrong place, he is covered up by the Ornate Plate... all in all this is so not how I wanted it to turn out but... I kind of like it! The hand has a rather blinging bright diamond on it to go with the lacey cuff... I broke up an old brooch I got in a bag of junk from a car boot sale... I wonder if it is a real diamond, that would be cool, there are about 30 stones in the brooch lol




Check out the watch.... behind it are three Memo Pins that I have popped a 4, a 9 and a 0 behind and filled with Glossy Accents (thanks to the Wonderful Wendy for that idea!!)



I have to say... Art Parts... they have to be my favest bases to work on... I have used Distress Stains on them and corrr, they smell divine when the heatgun is drying the ink... like fireworks (mind you, I have always been a bit strange, I like weird smells, like diesel and plastic paddling pools and the inside of those big catalogues you get from Argos... told you, strange indeedily lol) So, this is my entry for the challenge... a whole lot later and a whole lot different than planned but nevermind, I had a whole heap of fun making it. Oh and I nearly forgot... all of the stashly goodies I used are available at The Stamp Attic... (just being an enabler ;o))


I best get a move on... I need to make the Sunday Stamper for tomorrow... haven't a single clue about the theme this week so be prepared that it may be a bit of a wacky one... or a repeat of one we have already had lol Thanks for looking... enjoy your Saturday! TTFN
