Make A Moo or Two: 'Swirls and Flourishes' and Wednesday Stamper: 'Trees'


Another new challenge to try - well, what's a girl to do when it's Winter weather outside!!

Make A Moo - I've been admiring these for ages now so it was quite exciting to try my first one today....or should I say 'three'?

I found this quite tricky in that the dimensions are small and I'd chosen to cut around these three little figures....when you're eyesight is no longer what it was it's a real struggle to focus on such detail.

But hey, I did it and I'm pleased with the result of today's play-time.
This is also for this week's Wednesday Stamper theme of trees...there they are in the background! A great theme again for me as I LOVE trees.


The background is using part of a big stamp by Non Sequitur while the swirl stamp is from an American Art Stamp cube.

The printed pictures I've used of the beautiful cherubs/angels are paintings by William A. Bouguereau... an arist I discovered after seeing one of these images on Nancy Dooren's blog.

I really love his style of painting so many thanks to you, Nancy for introducing him to me!


Tomorrow I must, I must, I MUST not do any art or I'll never get anything else done around here.

If only our office had a door then I could close it to try and stop myself wandering in here and picking up a rubber stamp or surfing the Net but we don't have a door and I have a very limited amount of, let's be honest here....no willpower whatsoever.
If you catch me doing another challenge and posting it on here tomorrow, please someone tell me off!!!! lol
