Ching says, KAYA !

I have tons of rubber and acrylic stamps that I accumulated over the years of scrapbooking, but Bjay's rules for this challenge prohibited their use. I've tried to stamp my palm, thumb and even elbow! but, they didn't look good. While brushing my teeth the other morning, I felt that the grip design on my toothbrush might be good for stamping. EUREKA ! I got it !!! Here's the outcome ...

Sometimes it's hard to resist eating everything in sight in a buffet restaurant, especially if you're on a diet. you have to watch out or you'll pile your plate up high from appetizers to desserts !

Materials used: Prima pattern paper; Sasha Paper Collection/The breathe paper collection, DCWV cardstocks, Fiskars "Elegance" border punch, Provocraft decorative scissors, Colorbok chipboard/die-cut letters, Ranger Archival sepia ink, Color Box classic pigment ink, Ribbons, Scotch double sided tape/glue stick, Looney Toons rubber stamp, Toothbrush handle, Moving eyeball sticker.

Techniques: Non-Stamp - Toothbrush grip handle. I stamped it several times on the left side of the page to form flower-like designs.

Rubber Stamp - Looney Toons wood rubber stamps. I stamped it on a piece of paper, cut it out and glued moving eyeballs.

Slicing photo - I diagonally sliced the three corners of the photo, using decorative scissors to add design and dimension.

About Me:

Happy Spring and

Happy Easter Day!

That's such a novel use of a toothbrush! Ang ganda-ganda, as if it was made that way na talaga. Way to go, Ching!

Ms. Ching ang galing naman!! I thought we can only use the tooth brush for crafts as a cleaner (when it's old) or use the bristles as sprinkling medium!!! This is great!
