Blimey, it's March already and I am very excited. SO much going on this month, new stamps out soon, March ArtsyCrafts is in the new Warrington venue, and a show at the end of the month.
But first up this month is Craft Stamper catching us on the hop again. We have had emails this morning from people wanting to buy the stamps on offer for the article I wrote for the April issue out today. I haven't even got a copy yet, but some of you out there have!! So i just managed to upload the offers , check out this link http://shop.paperartsy.co.uk/craft-stamper-april10-253-c.asp and you can get your hot little hands on all you need to make this fun project.
The birds are stamped on pearl metal but this whole thing would look cool done with Rum and Raisin papers too if you're not into paint.
Try it in your fave colours. How cool does it look in pink and brown...this one by Jo Firth-Young ...here's the back
and the front.
The project is a collaboration by Lin at LB Crafts and me, it's one of the classes we taught at the October ArtsyCrafts last year. All the peeps loved this as it's a fair dinkum proper stamping project. Looks simple, but actually there are quite a few tricky dickie techniques in there that many of us haven't used for year and years. So something nice to get your teeth stuck into. In class we were surprised at how many peeps didn't realise you could actually stamp on top of paint so easily and with such sharp results - well you can with kaiser colour paints as they produce an extremely matt and chalky surface that accepts ink beautifully.
All the stamps used for this are from the ever-so-quirky Ding and Dong family of Squiggly Ink stamps, and don;t forget to check out the matching minis. These are time themed bird stamps-very cool.
Have a great day, and if you made this at AC post the link to your blog to show the world!! Don't be shy!
