Well what it year it has been so far. I thought I had better post something else this year before my blog subscription run out! 🙂
I haven’t been crafting at all for the last few months but I decided yesterday to have a fun day and escape into crafting with paints and stamps. I had been having a sort out in the old craft room recently and found some stash I had forgotten about so that got me started on what I wanted to make. I also wanted to try out one of the new Sharron Bates stamps and see what other CI stamps I could mix with it. Actually the answer is that Sharron’s stamp designs, because of their size and the line work on them, go well with all other Crafty Individual stamps.
Anyway, This is the result of yesterday’s play time.
Before the vans were added. I just remembered to take a photo in time.
I wasn’t really sure where I was going with these pages. I couldn’t quite work out what I was going to do with the top of the page. I decided to add the tickets. They fit in with the travel theme but they also remind me of car number plates so I thought that would work with the vans.
I stamped the people and tickets on some very thin note paper, coloured them with water colour crayons and glued them down. The colours are quite vibrant because I gave them a coat of mod podge.
Love these little people stamps from Crafty Individuals. I think they work brilliantly with the new cool van stamp.
I found these waxy water crayons in my stash. Had them for years but never used them much. Cheap as chips but they work great on pages especially the black for a grunge look.
The vans where stamped onto thicker card and coloured with acrylic paint.
I did take a lot of photos just to show the stamping on the background.
Yes, unashamedly 🙂 I am show casing some of the contemporary mark making stamps I designed for Crafty Individuals. Even though I say it myself I love them.
and the last one just to show some of the tickets in more detail.
I used all Crafty Individuals stamps for this project and they are as follows. Do check out all of the new stamps from Sharron Bates. They are fablous.
Well thats all from me today. Thank you for looking.
