Fly among the flowers . . .

. . . that's what this little chap/chappette is doing, or you could make a postcard.
It's no secret I LOVE making postcards, starting off with a piece of white card measuring 6in x 4in and just seeing what kind of a journey my stamps can take. 
The challenge this week at Stampotique is hosted by teamie Sue, check out her fab art on her blog here, and this week she is inviting us to use a 6in x 4in anything to create on, it doesn't have to be a postcard, you might have a canvas that size or a block of wood! Here's what Sue says:

"it's Sue here and I'm delighted to be hosting this weeks challenge. I'm sure that every crafter has had that block where their mojo has packed it's bags and gone on holiday. I know I've sat and looked at a sheet of card and had no ideas at all. One way I've got to get over this is just to decide what size or shape I want to make. So I pick a card or a tag, or in this case a postcard. Postcards are great fun and it's amazing how much you can get on a 6x4 (inches) area. So this week I would like you to make a postcard. Have Fun!"

The stamps I used are: Design Cube, Daisy Daisy, Baby Cthulhu and some new releases: Unleash Yourself, Barcode Text and Bird Cage.

Wishing you a lovely day, Sam xxx

  14. I can always visualise your postcards in frames, to be displayed as affirmations.
    Love that you create with cuteness but it is always with an arty feel to it - you really do create such special art.
