A Little Birdie Told Me

Showing two more pages today from my Stamp Journal.  Not sure if you saw my other posts about this book but only stamps and inks are allowed.

Two colour ink pads were used on both pages, Memento Summer Sky and New Sprout.

For those keen eyed crafters who say they can see the colour black … this wasn’t mentioned because technically black isn’t a colour, or white for that matter.

A variety of stamps are in play on the pages and there is a list below showing but a few of what was used.

Modes Of Transport At FSC

Not much been going on in my ‘Crafty Cranny’ simply because I have been MIA again (another short break to the UK).

That’s the holidays over for the time being, next break is AUSTRALIA.

FSC wants to see ‘Modes Of Transport’ for this month’s challenge which the lovely Dani picked as her theme.

It’s all about my stamp journal again, love the neat, crisp, clean look of these pages.  Getting to use loads of my stamps which have been gathering dust for tooooo long.  Only inks and stamps are used in this book … see first pages here.

For these pages I did a “before and after” starting with the horse then moving onto a motor vehicle before finishing with a van.

By the way the motor vehicle and the van set were both virgin stamps.  It’s OK, both wrists have been slapped, especially as I have had the PaperArtsy set for about five years and the car for two.

Reverse masked the horses then dappled with coloured spots.

Can you believe that the last time I used these Visible Image stamps was in April 2015 here just after I had bought them at Ally Pally.

Masked off the ‘AFTER’ and also the van then stamped over with a crackle stamp.

All stamps used for the journal pages, inks are a mixture of  Versafine and Memento.

 

 

Would really love it if you hopped on over to see all the DT’s work as they are simply stunning.  Also don’t forget that the winner of this challenge has $20 to choose anything they like from Flonz’s store.

Starting A Journey With All My Stamps

Today is the start of another journal … but this one is going to be all about my Journey with stamps.

What prompted me to start another Journal … it’s because I’m addicted to buying beautiful rubber stamps but alas I don’t seem to use them as often as I should.  Going back to the UK this week and what’s at home waiting for me … yep you guessed more rubber stamps.

Below is a selection of gorgeous stamps which were part of my Christmas present and all are unused.  Not anymore!!!

 

No more will they lay gathering dust in my craft room, no more will they be un-inked for today sees the first two pages in my Stamp Journal.

There are just loads and loads of techniques that you can do with stamps so this journal will not include any paints, stencils, die cuts etc just inks, embossing powders and stamps.

Only two techniques were used on these pages, masking plus reverse masking.

With the Stampendous ‘Life Is Art Stamp’ I replaced the word paint with the word stamp.  Did a bit of reverse masking with the clock.

Making these two pages today gave me so much pleasure because I have at last, made a start, on those uninked stamps.

 Showing the stamps used on the two pages.
