Make It Monday #172

Want to look at your stamps in a different way?  The video by Dawn McVey over at Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday features a rainbow medallion that can be made with a variety of stamps.  I don't have a lot of image stamps but I did find one that worked well.



It's my Fancy Feathers by Clearly Besotted.  The smaller feather in the set is stamped with a rainbow of Distress Inks.  It took some thought to come up with a center emblem to cover where the stamps meet in the center.  I had an idea that I loved and then realized it didn't include a PTI stamp so it was back to the drawing board.  I ended up using Splat, stamping the "celebrate" in silver, clear embossing it and cutting it out.  The more I look at this I think I like it better than my original.

I"m glad you stopped by and I hope your day is going well.
