New Artwork



Made these at Vickie Stampers Monthly club.
Used lots of distress inks and Dylusions sprays.

The two girly stamps are from my range of stamps. They were hand drawn by my eldest daughter. You can view them here.

WOYWW 214 I think

I am away from home staying with a crafting friend.
We have been playing with a piece of silicone cut from the base of a flan dish. It appears 
to work like a gelli plate. I tried different things - adding stencils from my new range to a layer of paint I had brayered on or stamping into it, using a scriber or a plastic comb or fork to make marks with..
Then I transferred my prepared selection onto cardstock. I made a batch of mono prints to use as backgrounds.
So what is on your desk today. Please share and visit the Stamping Ground Blog. to upload the photo of your mess, I mean desk.
Have fun.

I made a few cards today for a change.

WOYWW 208


I did not want to buy a Gelli Plate At nearly £30 so I have improvised. 
I cut the base out of a silicone baking tray. It is 8x8 inches. 
I bought if from Home Bargains for less than £2.
I brayered on some paint and laid a stencil on top, pressed it and then the door bell went.
It was my daughter with youngest GD. I went back to my desk and lifted off the stencil. I think the paint had dried a bit but I laid my paper on top and pressed it down then lifted it off.
You can just see it in the background. It appears to have worked so I will play tomorrow when I am on my own. I have to play shops now with my GD.
I am sure there will be more tips from other desks around the world so check out The Stamping Ground Blog.
