New Stamp Sets


I finally found some time to have a play with the stamps sets that I won from Particraft.  I brayered ink from the mountain meadow big n juicy pad and stamped the main image in black stazon.  For the words and the music notes I painted neat bleach onto the stamp and stamped into the ink to remove the colour.  I also took a bit of colour away from the face and shoulders using a paintbrush.  I mounted a purple piece of card onto a black piece and stamped it with a flourish stamp using sand eco friendly paint.  I mounted the main image and added fibres.  It does look much better from a distance but I had to get in close to get the photo!!!!


I painted a piece of white card with bronze eco friendly paints and when touch dry painted pool tide over the top, gave it a quick blast with the heat gun and then swiped some of the top coat off to reveal the bronze.  You can get a really good shine on the metalic by buffing it up.  I stamped the image using timber brown stazon.  Tore and curled the edges.  I stamped the instrument onto a painted surface, cut it out and covered it with diamond glaze.  For the background I painted a piece of corrugated card in sand and stamped with mulch eco friendly paint and attached some string to hang it from.  I added a piece of twill ribbon and brads.




These stamps are from the other set.  Again I used the mountain meadow big n juicy but only used 3 of the colours.  Stamped the image and a quote.  Mounted it onto a piece of used dry babywipe.  Painted the corrugated in sand.  Mounted everything up and covered with a piece of angelina fibre which had been ironed over a rubber stamp.
