Public Dancer

My mom was recently given 4 giant boxes full of wood-mounted rubber stamps, and they are slowly making their way to her cardmaking group, friends, and various classrooms she works with that need crafting supplies. One of the stops was in my room at her house, while I was visiting...I swear, I went through those boxes before unpacking! My intention was to use them while I was there, but I got swept up in the holidays and ended up bringing a bunch back with me in my suitcase. Yes, I tipped the skycap! One of the stamps is this fun ballerina from Art Impressions Stamps,and it works so well with this sentiment from Create with TLC.

I embossed & cut out the piece with a Spellbinders die in my Big Shot (Love it!). Although it's difficult to see in these photos, I added pink to the edges of the image & sentiment die cuts with chalks, and sprayed the pieces with matte coating spray. The swirl is from the Scribbles Swirls Sizzlits die, and the flowers are from the Flower Creations Spellbinders Shapeabilities set.

She makes me want to dance across the living room!
