How exciting is this? Yes I am into rubber! I cannot believe it and this is how it happened. I entered a stamp designing competition run by Jennie at The Artistic Stamper and she chose my designs as the winner! Over the moon or what!
I had wanted an image of converse sneakers for sometime but I could not find any. What iconic footwear these sneakers are and I felt justified themselves as being an image to use in our stamping adventures. I know I will be using them a lot!
This is my first creation with the stamps. It is also my contribution to The Artistic Stamper March challenge, which is Travel. I have made a collage with some of my favourite stamps. I love these words from Tim Holtz and felt they fitted my adventure perfectly. The sneakers may look slightly blurred. This is because I double stamped them. First with Maroon Archival ink and then over stamped them lightly with black. It may not be everyones like but I do like this off set printer look and the aged feel it gives. Having the two colours also lets the image stand out a little more.
So if you feel the need to own an image like this in your stamping then march over to the Artistic Stamper where they are available in Jennie's store.
I am also entering this into The Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge which this week is anything goes.
