Flower + Stem = Eggs + Bacon


This is my second post of the day! Please scroll down to check out my CASE Study post - Thanks! :)

Hey!

My oh my! How quickly does a month go by? It seems like only yesterday I was having the pleasure of giving you sneak peeks of the April release from The Craft's Meow and here we are again with the May release!


The Craft's Meow

You're in for a treat today as we get to give you a sneaky peeky of the gorgeous set, Flower Garden, designed by Nina.B. This set features beautiful block images of flowers giving you the flexibility to ink to perfection! However, when I was playing with this set, I had an idea and just had to roll with it:

Eggs & Bacon

Where are the flowers, you ask? Well I promise you that I was not under the influence of any intoxicating drugs whilst making this (apart from tea and chocolate) . I honestly saw eggs and bacon in Nina's designs!!! The flower makes for a fabulous friend egg when embossed and given a good dollop of glossy accents:

Couldn't you just poke that yolk?! :)

The stem is stamped in Terracotta Tile ink, then flipped and stamped again (without re-inking!) to create a rasher of bacon. I know, I know, I'm crazy - but luckily Nina.B finds this idea funny too - phew!

Now obviously this wasn't intended to be an eggs and bacon set, so be sure to check out what the rest of the TCM DT whipped up to get more sneaky peeks. Oh, and be sure to welcome our Guest Designers too - we're so happy to have Sharri Seffens and Annette Allen on board with us this month!

Fancy winning this set for yourself? Then be sure to pop across the the TCM Blog and leave a comment today!

Thanks so much for stopping by today, and for tolerating my kinda crazy approach to floral stamp set! I'll be back tomorrow with another sneaky peek - don't worry, not as crazy as this one!

Catch ya later!
