ATC time at the Stamp Man- share your wise words

The the for The Stamp Man's ATC swap this month is Wise Words. We want to see all those pearls of wisdom, on a little card!

Here's mine.....

I've been working on my art journal a bit lately, and this seemed a particularly apt saying. The background was one of a bunch of backgrounds that Jill (the boss) sent me, it's Starburst stains, and I think it's been splodged with bubblewrap. Gorgeous colours anyway! The eyes are the Stamp Man stamp that was free with Craft Stamper a while back, and the swirls come from the edge of one of the Aspects of Design 62 Design elements plate.

The eyes and swirls are stamped in black and then clear heat embossed for extra gloss, then I whitened her eyes with white gel pen. The flowers are punched out of some background waste and finished with teeny tiny coloured pearls.

Stamps- Craft Stamper freebie, Aspects of Design 62 Design elements , Studio G peg alphabet stamps
Inks- Versafine onyx black
Stash- Starburst stains, flower punch, coloured pearls, clear embossing powder


  1. Fabulolus Lisa, such a rich feel to it and a great saying. I must get back to my journal, haven't done any for ages.
    luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox

  2. Wow absolutely gorgeous and what a coincidence!!!
    Last night I was complaining about my reading/crafting glasses and having to keep taking them on and off all of the time. I asked a friend about his eyes being lazered. My words were:
    "It's not what I not what I look like that matters, it's what I can or can't see"
    I really don't mind wearing them them (so many trendy styles these days and they can even make a blonde look a little intelligent =;-) lol), but if I try to see anything on my work desk or across the room which is more than 2ft away it is a total blur. I don't know about you Lisa, but I use far more than 2ft of space to keep all my stash and "work in progress" in! LOL <3=:-D x x x

  3. They are wise words indeed, its a brilliant ATC

  4. What a fabulous ATC Lisa, such lovely deep, warm colours xx
