I have recently received the new Kudzu Kafe
plate; new stamps always help to INSPIRE. The Kudzu is a fast growing
vine in the USA hence I was inspired to add vine to my creation.
I found this little wooden house in my collection and so began my
crreation, colouring the wooden house with broken china Distress Stain
and stamping the ticking stripes in the background with black
archival ink. I stamped the Kudzu Kafe onto white card, coloured with a
little broken china and peeled paint Distress Inks and added to the
I added the vine stamped with olive archival
ink. I wanted my vines to represent those fast growing vines in the USA.
I stamped the young girl, coloured her dress with broken china Distress
Markers and she is holding the sentiment "be kind".
I added "be honest" to a mini ticket stamping the ticking stripe around
the edges for a little more interest. "Kudzu Vine" was added to the
bottom corner and I added a couple of little wooden birds for dimension.
I continued the vine around the back of my house stamping the fabulous
sentiment onto a mini ticket and sponging with broken china ink. I love the bottle top I found in my collection, perfect for this eclectic mix of images.
