Do you know what our new favorite printing tool is? Flower pods! After viewing my scissor stamp, Shalet informed me that her daughters had discovered the brilliant beauty of stamping with Asian Poppy pods. I remembered how gorgeous my poppies had looked in early July after the petals fell away. In fact, I had snapped this picture, because I was so inspired.
I thought that I might use the photo for a future print of some kind. Never did it cross my mind to print with them!! I ran out to grab a few. They were too dry, and the rays of their little sun had begun to rise and lift off the pod. So disappointing! I sure hoped I'd remember next July. A few days went by, and I happened to be at Laura's house, where her Asian poppies were just finishing up. Her's were the pinks, mine were the early crimsons. She gladly let me snip some, and my girl and I went running home for our stamp pads. As you can see we stamped on paper and cloth... well, wait until you see the rest! So good... so fun! I'll be back with more details and photos, but we're about to have a huge summer storm, and I'm off to batten down the hatches! Hope your week is off to a great start!
