Summer has arrived!!


Look what the postie brought me this morning, the new set of T!m seasonal inks and re-inkers.  If you're still after a set, check out Oyster Stamps for an unbeatable price.


So, of course, I had to have a play.  I masked off the background and went direct from pad to paper to get the blocks of colour, bright aren't they!!!  I recently bought the TH mixed media stamp plate, and have used all 4 of the stamps above in black stazon.  I fell in love with the gorgeous Stampotique image whilst on the AftH pan pastel workshop.  Unfortunately he was out of stock so I had to search the internet for him, but I did find out his name ~ heart throb ~ how appropriate!! Anyway he is coloured with pan pastels, orange (280.5), bright yellow green (680.5), permanent red (340.5) and his face is burnt sienna tint (740.8).  Along with the platform he is standing on, phthalo blue (560.5), violet shade (470.3) and magenta (430.5) which is attached with 2 orange brads.  I stamped the Stampotique hanging hearts in festive berries distress ink across the top and added a white arrow anchor attached with a blue heart brad.  Finally I hi-lighted some of the images with a white pen.

Wow, you don't waste any time, do you, Sam LOL. I like the new colours - they are a bit different from the grungier distress colours. You've used them to great effect on your tag.
