Here comes the Girls

This week I decided to introduce my class to Sugar Nellie. I'm not usually taken with cute stamps but I must admit that I really love these stamps. I got this idea for the tag from the Sugar Nellie web site. (I haven't worked out how to add a link yet, it's on my list of must do. )

I brayered the background with a combination of Ariondack inks watermelon/butterscotch.
Then overstamped using Archival ink, coffee using Crafty Individuals 003 before stamping Sugar Nellie and the sentiment by Hero Arts.

I really like the effect of stamping the image on the edge. it sort of suggests that she's shy.

Here I used Blonde Moments UTEE Sweet Ruby and Sugar Pink on the chipboard numbers.

This is a more traditional set up with the Sugar Nellie (must find out her title) stamped and decoupaged onto a white circle and blue scallop, nestabilities, which I can't live without. I used cheap watercolour pencils from Tesco to add colour.

My students really enjoyed playing with these stamps and I can see that I might have to add to my collection!!!!

Well I'll need them for work.

  1. Although I am not a great fan of 'cute', these are very tastefully done and the colour schemes are brilliant !

  2. I'm with Sid! Not generally my kind of stamp but I like what you've done with them, especially the "off the edge" stamping on the tag.

    To add a link, look at the little row of tools along the top of the text box when you are composing your post. You'll see an icon that looks like a little chain. Just highlight the words you want to make in to a link, click on that chain icon and a box will pop up for you to paste in the web address. Click "OK" when you're done and you'll have a link. HTH!

  3. Aw these are adorable, great colours, i too love the Gorjuss girl images.. you might be able to tell from my cute blog lol
