Just a quick post tonight as I have received my latest purchase of Carabelle Studio stamps. I had ordered another of the XXL stamps that they do the one I received is "Mecanique Steampunk" they are A4 in size and come on their own acrlic block because they are that big. I have been playing with different ink pads to see which gives me the best impression when you stamp with it and so far my preference is for Memento Luxe as it stays wet longer enough to cover the whole stamp, these ink pads are sold as for mixed media so hopefully be good for stamping on gelli prints, I'll let you know when I try that.
Using a practice print (that I didn't perfectly stamp) I cut it up into smaller pieces to make a couple of cards. I have kept these cards simple, nothing other than stamping and some chit chat stickers to add my quotes.
All have been stamped with Memento Luxe - Tuxedo Black.
The Girl with Balloon in from VLVS
Balloon is Memento Luxe - Love Letter
This time I have stamped the Mecanique Steampunk stamp in Memento Luxe Espresso Truffle and the business men, again from VLVS, in black Luxe as I wanted them to stand out from the background. Again the quote is using chit chat stickers.
My next task it to stamp this again and take on the challenge of colouring it in!!!
Right i'm off now, said it was a quick post, I have a mountain of sweets to get through as I have had NO trick and treaters tonight, result!!
Have a lovely weekend hope you are all doing something lovely, unlike myself who is working :-(.
See you soon, and as always thankyou for stopping by.
