Welcome to the house of sugar....





Leanne Ellis.
While blog hopping I found Leanne and although not the normal safe Sugar Nellie style I believe that this is a great step forward, something different and something trendy. She does lots of different work but these three are my favourites and this is the direction we will take with the new range of stamps. I can see many possibilities for this style of stamp and I am really excited by her joining the house of sugar. I hope to share with you the sketches of the new stamps when they are ready but for now, a big welcome to Leanne.

I have not been a fan of Sugar Nellie stamps (sorry) ...or so I thought until I saw these. I love them and the new direction you are taking with the funky-ness. Bravo!

Elizabeth >^..^< said...

You are correct. Not your usual style, but an excellent choice. These images made me pause while browsing your blog. Very intriguing. Unusual and I look forward to seeing more of her work.
