The images from the Lovely as a Tree stamp set have adorned my daughter Mackenzie's leg on many occasions. It started years ago on a stamping trip (oops I meant camping trip). Whenever our family went camping I always brought along my stamping supplies and on one camping trip Kenz decided that she and her father should have matching tattoos. She stamped a little flower on each of their ankles using Black Stazon and from that point she was addicted.
As a teenager Kenz and her friends would sit in my stamp room and give themselves "tattoos". There were a few images that were always the favorites. One stamp they used often was Stampin' Up's retired Sunflower stamp. When she was in university one of her friends asked her to accompany her to the tattoo parlor because she liked Kenz' sunflower tattoo and wanted to get one just like it. She couldn't believe it was a stamp and hadn't noticed that it disappeared for long periods of time.
Mackenzie still gives herself the occasional tattoo and I really wanted to share her latest one. Along with the sunflower on her thigh she used the Rose image from the Rose Wonder stamp set to tattoo her side. She stamped it with Black Stazon then traced along the lines with Stampin' Write Markers to add some colour then went over the coloured lines with an Aqua Painter. I couldn't get a good pic but I think her tattoo turned out pretty cool.
