Serendipity Stamps Blog Challenge #6

Hi there!

It is time once again for a new challenge on the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog. The challenge for this week is 'things are not as they should be' - we were challenged to use a stamp in an unexpected way. I decided to use the Barn & Windmill stamp (1145K), which is a winter scene and color it up for a different season.

I thought Springtime would be appropriate.. the trees are just starting to bud, the grass is nice and green and the sky is a beautiful blue. I used my inks to watercolor the image.

Stop over to the Challenge Blog for all the details and to see the fabulous inspiration from the rest of the Design Team:

Although the Serendipity Design Team is using stamps in an unexpected way, we encourage you to play along in any way - feel free to use any of your favorite SS images on a project any way you like. We hope you'll join us!

Serendipity's special this week (February 20 - 27) is 40% off the highest priced item in your shopping cart. Use code 40fromhigh123 to take advantage of the special!
