Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #123 ~ Picture Inspiration

Hello Creative friends, 

It's time for a new Paperbabe Stamps Challenge, 
use the picture below to inspire you and come 
share your creativity with us over HERE..

Inspired by those fruity colours above I blended paint 

Paint and MDF always takes me to my happy place.. 

Designed to capture and frame the Dinky 3/4 view Female stamps 
I stamped and coloured one of the designs, dry brushing colour 
onto the word Dream* one of six included with the frame set.

Flowers from the Blossom stamp set are stamped onto painted card, 
cut out and arranged around the MDF overlay completing the design.

Ready to display on its stand or hang on the wall 
and just dream of warm sunny days ahead.. 

Come share your take on the challenge over on the 
Paperbabe Stamps Blog for the chance to win a 
Paperbabe stamps prize of your choice.

Look forward to seeing what your 
creative side designs.. 

Stay safe everyone
Creative wishes 
Tracey xx

Ooh, magical colours - I love the eye-shaped ombre colours echoing the shape of the flower stem frame - charming.

I am sure dreaming of warm sunny days ahead after seeing this Tracey. It is absolutely beautiful, unique and glorious x.

Redanne said...

Wow Tracey, those ice cream colours in the illustration are some of my current favourites and you have really done them justice with your gorgeous MDF piece. The face is stunning and I love how you did her hair, the whole piece is just wonderful.

I hope you are staying safe and well. It is now 19 weeks in lockdown here, we are quite used to it now but best to be safe than sorry, but I think I have lost the art of conversation with anyone other than David.... Hugs, Anne xxx

Sue said...

Isent it so dear Tracey,- paint and all such kind of creative materials also makes me happy, and takes me away to another planet, without worries and scare . Your wonderful paperbabe in the beautiful frame, looks like she have great appetite on life and what belongs to it . I hope you are safe and well, I hope you received my thankyou e-mail in June - as I wrote you I have been away from blog and all, while Nadja was here with the kids, so I`m behind.
Take care dear friend, and stay ongoing safe . Big hugs to you from Dorthe- xxxx

What a beautiful project. Thank you for sharing with us over at Morgan's Artworld Challenge. We hope to see you again.

Cath Wilson said...

Well, I just found Paperbabe Challenge - happily, because I knew you were on the
dt! And which brought me here, which is sad because I haven't been keeping up with any blogs at all for the last couple of months. Lovely to see your art - and to realise that I'm not the only one who needs a drastic clean/tidy up after even a couple of days in my craft room...I generate so much MESS!

Another 'very you' piece here. I love it. What a great way to frame a face and create an ethereal dream like effect. It's gorgeous. I love the colours you chose. The addition of the flowers adds to the illusion of dreaminess.

I think dreaming is all we'll be doing of sunny days up here in the NW...though there is sun today, but a very breezy 17C is not my idea of summer.
I've had a quick look (while eating my ice cream lolly, lol) but will go look more now. Sounds as if you've been enjoying some quality art time. So glad to hear it - and that you're making masks. I am ashamed to say my machine is still sitting unused upstairs, despite my getting the fabrics out to make some. I have very little enthusiasm for something I hate wearing :-(
I'll look around now... Cath x

Wow, what a gorgeous make! I loved this challenge and you captured and blended the colours so beautifully 😀. I'm loving this teardrop mask too with the face popping out surrounded by the wood chippie you used - stunning! Take care! Hugs, Jo x
