Contraband

Well here's the dish. I had an AC Moore 40% off coupon last week and on Saturday HWNSNBP was going in that direction to price something and asked if I wanted to come along. If I didn't have the coupon I would have stayed home, but that wasn't the case. He dropped me off at AC Moore and went about doing his errand.

So what do you do when you walk all around the store and you don't find anything to spend your 40% coupon on? I bet most people would walk out empty handed, but not me. I headed on back to the stamp section which I had only casually looked through before and started an honest to goodness search for something different. Yes, it had to be different than the about 20 million other stamps that I already have.

I've always liked pandas and I knew I did not have a stamp of one. So I made my little purchase and I didn't even need a bag for it!

With all the stamps that I already have that I haven't used yet I still was itching to use this one. I inked it in Black Stazon and stamped it onto Whisper White cs. I used markers and my aquapainter to color the image. This took a while, but it was very therapeutic at the same time.

SU's Embrace Life set supplied the bamboo which I stamped in black on the Crushed Curry and in VersaMark on the Dusty Durango. I colored the leaves with a green marker on the Crushed Curry piece. The three balls are from the Circle Circus set and they're popped up on dimensionals.

Now I've got to start inking up more of those other 20 million stamps!

  1. You're a woman after my own heart with that coupon! I don't know how many times I have walked around thinking I was on a mission, only to find out that something was already on sale, so I couldn't use the coupon, but I couldn't NOT use it!
    Thanks for the well wishes and taking the time to stop by...nice to chat with you again!
