Moving without leaving

Last week I got new floors in my apt. thanks you Dick and Betty! A wonderful improvement over the old musty carpet that was a bug hideout! Downside was I had to move everything but the heavy furniture out. Still haven't finished moving back in and I couldn't find my old standbys when it was time to create for Created Byhand Tuesday Challenge. This weeks theme is Sapphire- a birthstone for September.
I pulled this paper out of the recycling and inked it up with a faded jeans distress ink reinker. Then I put some bleach- that was in the laundry room- I knew where that was on a flourish stamp- hey I liked it. I stamped the dragonfly and nature in versa magic white and over stamped in silver and added some stickles. I wrote in with the inkssentials white pen-in wilderness is the preservation of the world. Added a few stars. Not too shabby for a studio in boxes covered in dust. And the fear in my heart when unplugging and moving electronic equipment. The joy when the scanner worked!
Thanks for looking and please leave a comment.
Please post your own entry- and maybe your good excuse as to why you don't.


  1. very nice. Like the bleached areas.

  2. Robyn, this is truly gorgeous. I love the look of the white against the blue. I had no idea you could stamp with bleach. It looks great. Hope you are soon unpacked and back in the swing of things again. We got a new kitchen floor this summer. The inconvenience was really awful. I can't imagine having more than one room in a state of unheaval. Not sure I'll be in this challenge. tuesdays are very busy.

  3. it looks sparkly and I adore the sweet blue's!

  4. I love the look!!
    Almost like batik!
