Thought we'd start the week
with a News Flash for a
change. Helen Chilton found
these super new stamps on
the Craft Barn website and
couldn't resist the temptation
to try them out!!
"These are a new range of stamps
at The Craft Barn - they're very good
value at £5.50 for a set of this size
and there is a good range of designs.
I've started by colouring some Yupo
with green and blue alcohol inks -
Aqua, Botanical and Limeade.
I've then stamped a scene in
Memento Tuxedo Black and
started to colour with alcohol ink pens.
The pen colour will push out
the background colour.
When i finished colouring I added some
more detail in black pen.
I layered the scene onto kraft card
and added die cuts from
Tim Holtz's Wildflowers set 1.
To show the stamps' versatility I've made
another card stamped on a glossy
...and a tag on a Distress Oxide background."
Thanks Helen, good to see
new stamps in action.......!
Check out all the other stamps
in the range - they're certainly
excellent value for money
