Imagination Can Take You Anywhere

In yesterday's post I showed the things I brought back from my shopping spree at Scrapbook Expo.  Since I've gotten more heavily into stamping this past year or so I was delighted to see all the different stamping companies represented....and many new to me.  I didn't buy a ton of stamps because ...let's face it...they can be very expensive...but I had a great time looking.  One set I bought at a nice discount was a Unity Stamps set called Happiness Is...  I just loved this little girl on a swing.  And I love Unity Stamps. They are cling stamps and such wonderful always get a good image!
 I stamped the young lady with Ranger Archival ink onto some water color paper.  Colored her in with a combination of Stampin' Up and Close to My Heart inks as well as a little Distress ink. 
 I added a little "magic" to her hair and a few other parts of the image to simulate a bit more movement...she IS magic! :)

I mounted the image on black cardstock and then placed that on a Loolah paper that has text on it.  I'm entering this in the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge CFC60 which is for a clean and simple project using Text.

Today is the championship match of the ladies at Wimbledon.  Serena Williams vs Agnieszka Radwanska.  Power vs finesse.  My money is on Serena but hopefully the match will be a great one!

Happy Crafting!!!


  1. Sweet card. Reminds me of how much I liked to swing in younger days. I especially like the hair coloring.
