SWEETPEA - GUEST DESIGNER - SEPT 3rd project

I am so pleased to have been asked to Guest Design for Sweetpea as I love their stamps so much.  I love the difference styles each of the Artists bring to Sweetpea and there's always a style to suit any person. 

Although I haven't tried to vivid fantasy stamps (the ones that remind me of the pictures in the 60's and 70's) I am looking forward to broadening my scope and venturing into this field as I find this has to be the hardest technique to master as it still has to look realistic and good.


This is my 3rd and final Guest project and I must admit my favourite.  I have so enjoyed using these stamps and can see how my confident has grown.  I am so pleased with the way this project turned out and personally I believe it to be my best yet!
