prickley pear rocks

It was so exciting and fun to attend the vendor stamping show on Saturday in Weston at Dale’s Bowling establishment.  What fun to see so many vendors and so many stampers.  I had a goal to make sure to visit three places for sure.  The Stamp Shoppe, Door County Rubber Stamps and the Prickley Pear booths.  I was not disappointed in any of them.  I did several make and takes which was fun and of course I had to purchase some Prickley Pear stamps and dies. Mary, the owner and designer is just the nicest person EVER!

Here is my first creation with my new items.  This is for the Prickley Pear Sketch Challenge for the Month of November 2013.

I just got myself a few more gelatos and I wanted to try some mixed media with this sketch.  IMG_2366  I used a stencil to make the banner with gelatos and then used transparent paste over the stencil to bring out the colors.  I then cut the banner into three parts to adhere to the sketch.  The little image and the lacy die and sentiment are all from Prickley Pear.  Before adhering the circle dies I used a bit of gelato mixed with water on my crafting mat and then flicked a stipple brush filled with the mixture, onto my card base.  such a soft little touch that gives some depth to the card.  I think I found my next favorite company.  It was fun to do make and takes with Michelle the senior design team member.  Check them out, they have the cutest images and reasonably priced.
