Hi everyone - it's me back again!
This afternoon I had a great time catching up on some stamping, but before starting I had to clear my desk a bit. As I was doing this I uncovered a couple of old items I had taken with me when I gave the two talks recently. They were items I had stamped at some earlier time & just took them along as samples to show - & I do mean an earlier time. I think they are from a rubber stamping workshop some time ago. Anyway I decided it was time they became cards. Three of them were Christmas ones, stamped with the PSX village scene that has been around ages, & rarely for me had got quite a bit of glitter on. That is about the only image I use glitter on because it makes the image look frosty. Having said that one of them I had embossed in gold on black card with gold glitter. The other card was of an image that I can only describe as "photo-style" - you know the rubber image made up of lots of dots. I had shown this one on a workshop by brayering the colour directly onto the stamp. So! all four got trimmed & put onto cards.
Now the creative juices were going - so I stamped some more. This time I chose 3 images & stamped them several times - 4 of one, 2 of another & 3 of the third image. Two of he designs were then coloured in with Promarkers, trimmed & matted. The third one I used the Tim Holtz style of colouring the card with 2 complimentary inks leaving the stamping just in black Verafine embossed with clear EP. Tomorrow I will be putting them on cards. I haven't taken any photos as by the time I stopped the light wasn't conducive to photography. So will take all of the tomorrow when I am finished. I am hoping I will also be able to prepare some more images........
..............but, tomorrow afternoon my car has to go in for a check up. I got rather a nasty shock last week when a letter came from VOSA saying that some cars were being recalled for a safety check & my model was one of them. The service man assured me that it is only a few of thousands that could be faulty but they have to check them all. So! fingers crossed I am one of the many not the few.
That's me for today.
