First of all, let me wish my son Evan and husband Ian a very happy birthday. Love you lots and lots.
They dont actually read this, thankfully. LOL
Anyway, a new obsession, unusual for me I know, haha
In July's Craft Stamper, Trish Latimer did a masterclass on Simple Stamp Carving, now this looked fun and as work has an excess of rubbers, (someone went a bit mad on the ordering) I decided to put a few of them to good use. Used my trusty scalpel and had such fun doing this, picture shows them in order of doing them, started off with simple diamond and then just went from there, loved it so therapeutic, great to do for background stamps, which dont have to be too perfect, OK some of them may be a bit iffy, but I love my umbrella and my reverse sequin waste. Anyway as obsessions go have now ordered some lino carving tools to see what i can do, have depleted rubber box at work so shall have to find a cheap supplier.
And then I thought I must show how I am going to use them so made some background paper using them, distress inks, glimmer mists etc and then used that to make these three ATC's, let me know if anyone wants them, they are called "Stranger Danger", "Hanging on the wall" and "Fishy".
Right I best go, as I'm due at work, and dont think i can say "sorry i'm late, was updating me blog" . . can you imagine their faces.
have a great day everyone, especially birthday boys.
