Girly Extreme Elements

This is another try with the Extreme Elements stamp set. I have a t-shirt that has these colours so I thought I would use it as inspiration. Honestly the colours look alot better in person. I said that with my last project too. Maybe it's just hard for me to capture the true look of this stampset with my camera. I think because in person, you can see a little more bling!! Thanks for stopping by. As usual, all products used are Stampin Up
Ink: Elegant Eggplant. Pale Plum, Versa Mark
Paper: Black, Rich Razzleberry. Brushed Silver

Another try at graffiti

Here is another attempt at graffiti for me. I must admit, it actually looks alot better in person. In this photograph the stamping looks kinda bad so I have to laugh but it is hard to photograph the orange on orange. Anyway with the graffiti I have learned from doing this that my usual rule of "less is more" doesn't apply to this. I felt that the graffiti looked a little better when I stamped more then I usually would. These photos are of my nephew Taren . Taren idolizes his big cousin Adam. I think life is good when we have someone to look up to. I look up to Martha Stewart and Sarah Richardson. They both have talent and style that I absolutely love. I hope you enjoy.

Ink: Tangerine Tango, Garden Green, Choc chip, Brilliant Blue
Paper: same as ink
