Hello girls! Here's a project I've been planning for quite some time.
I was flipping through a catalog and saw this cute pair of art pieces.
Wow, I thought. I must have this for my house!
However, I was not willing to pay $89 for something I knew I could replicate easily myself (though I *do* want you to pay $89 for this because it is from my company and I want my company to have good sales so I can have a job and afford the luxuries in life, like food, my mortgage, you know).
I've been a rubber stamper for, oh, about 18 years. I knew I could make this on the cheap.
I went to the thrift store to find a pair of matching frames, and this is what I found.
But the frames were nice, solid wood frames, so I knew they'd work.
I tore two pages out of an old book, busted out my rubber stamps, and here's what I came up with.
I think they turned out ok, but I'm not totally in love with it. Maybe I should have paid the $89 afterall.
Maybe I need something other than butterflies. I have lots of butterfly stamps, but this was the only one I really liked for this project. It doesn't have enough "umph" though. Maybe I'll do some tweaking. We'll see.
