This week's Stampin B's challenge, hosted by Lois (Clownmom), was to use our oldest stamp set/stamp along with our newest tool/embellie/'toy'.
I must be honest in saying that I really don't know which stamp is my oldest.....so I just grabbed one of my older sets. This vine set was one I coveted for a while before buying. Then when I got it I was very discouraged in using it 'cuz even with my Thingamajig, I could never line up the second stamp in the 2 step process. So it sat and sat until I decided one day to just 'eye' it, knowing it would be 'offset'. Well......I came to like the effect of the offset AND that made it easier to use and enjoy. So....that is the story on that!!!! If you are a purist, then just ignore the offset quality....lol!!!!
The second part of our challenge was to use a new tool or 'toy'. Well, in the picture you probably can't see the work of my clear stardust gel pen. Ya' see.....I have problems with my eyes and I don't use glitter. So, a dear friend gave me a set of these stardust gel pens AND I LOVE them.....they allow me to glitz things up without getting glitter in my eyes. So...in real life this stardust brings a bit of glamour to these purple vines.
So...that is the story on this one....can't wait to see what the other team members did!!!!
