This week's Serendipity Stamps challenge is very unusual! It is "Not as it seems". The Design Team was asked to use a stamp in a different way than it was intended. I chose the garden wagon stamp and converted it to a holiday wagon. I filled it with presents from the Sleigh stamp.
I stamped the wagon by inking up just the lower portion of the image and using a craft knife, I cut a slit along the top of the wagon. Then I stamped the presents from the sleigh a few times on scraps, colored them and cut them out and slid them under the slit. I had to piece the wagon arm so it wouldn't be hidden by presents.
My intention was to create a pine swag to drape on the wagon using Martha's branch punch. I had to cut the little pieces apart and place them on the wagon with a tweezer.
Here are the 2 images I started with:
We would love for you to play along in our challenge for a prize. "Anything Goes" is the theme so you don't have to do what the Design Team did! See the details HERE.
