Stretch Your Stamps 2, Graphic Stamps

Days 7 and 8 have concentrated on using graphic stamps in new ways, and I've learned alot.  However, being the flower girl that I am, I don't have any stamps similar to what were being shown.   With as many stamps as I have, this was amazing to me, and I'll have to start filling in the gap, because these graphic stamps make very interesting designs......

That said, I used this lotus pattern and followed some of Kristina's tips for lining up and measuring a design.
SYS2 Graphic Stamps

supplies: lotus pattern from a retired The Craft's Meow set, Flower Garden, stamped in Simon's Green Apple and Wplus9's Silver Lining inks, stripes from Simon's Only Have Eyes for You, sentiment from Simon's Life is a Journey, chartreuse green sequins

Thanks for stopping by; I'll be back tomorrow with a new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!

  3. That turned out great -- way to improvise! I'm eyeing the class graphic stamps too as I don't have anything like it and I really like some of the examples.

  4. Love the colors! Your work is always amazing! I have the same problem with having too many stamps but none like these. I ended up using one that came with my gelatos lol!
