Dream & Happy Mother's Day!

Hello!  It's my last day to share Sister Stamps projects.  So sad!  I had a lot of fun playing with these cute new stamps.  Thanks again for the opportunity, Jenny!  I made a few projects with Haruyo.  Her costume reminds me of the ones worn by dancers during Okinawan performances.  See HERE for a picture.  My sister-in-law studies traditional Okinawan dancing and music so Haruyo reminded me of her and I also thought my in-laws would love this image.

I made this with 4 layers of thin cardboard I had lying around.  I added washi tape around the edges and just decorated the front.  I wanted the girls to look like they were dancing.

I also made a couple of simple Mother's Day cards.  Hopefully they will like them.  The sentiment and tags are from Papertrey Ink.

My last project was kind of an experiment that I need to work on!  I had seen this tutorial on SCS about stamping on air drying clay.  Such a neat idea, isn't it?  After seeing the tutorial I went out and bought some air drying clay.  But I think I am too impatient for one thing to let the clay dry completely.  And I should've rolled the clay a bit thinner so maybe that would let the clay dry faster.  I think it took a few days to a week to completely dry and it's not a large piece of clay.  And to get the right impression takes some practice but overall I thought this was such a fun idea.  I used watercolors to paint it after.  I think this would make a fun kids' project too! 

Don't forget to stop over at the Sister Stamps blog and Debi's too!  These stamps will be available May 1st!

Thanks so much for dropping by!
