Sunday Stamper - Week 209 - Pretty In Pink and Simon Says Stamp and Show - Anything Goes!

Sunday Stamper by Hels theme is PINK so I went to work on a canvas 10"x12" and I painted it with Adirondack acrylic paint dabber in Shell Pink. I stamped the canvas using Tim Holtz's Mixed Media with distress ink spun sugar. I used Portobello Road embossing folder in the shape of a Union Jack and then embossed various colours of pink Tim Holtz's papers to lay on top of it. I think this gave a lovely effect.

Using the Vagabond i cut several of the Tim Holtz Alterations Bigz Dies, Sewing Room and Tattered Florals. I now used Movers and Shakers Mini Heart Set, Mini Flourish and the Mini Butterflies Set in various colours of pink.

On the dress form I stamped Indigo Blu thimbles in Archival Ink, coffee. I made the flowers from the Tattered Florals using several layers together. The leaves I made from Tim Holtz's Alterations Tattered Leaves and I covered the flowers and the leaves in glitter.

I finished the canvas with a sentiment from Tim Holtz's Stuff to Say, some pink glitter in a bottle and a self adhesive Pearl Swirl.

I was pleased with the result and I am entering it into Simon Says Stamp and Show.


  1. Hi Carol, I love your canvas, so much to look at, but the way you have done the flag is amazing, loving the flowers and butterfly too. I love it. A x
