Lynne Perrella brings us Christmas rubber
But We absolutely adore these new winter-christmas images that are now available in the online shop. Lynne creates such gorgeous collage stamp images, and these are not so much Christmas as wintery. This makes them versatile for year round, but they are of course really great for Christmas.
Treasure Gold wax!! While demoing with Treasure Gold I have figured out a fab way to Crete a multi-coloured background, and then stamp the image on top of the wax! I can wait to do that with this new image, so I shall try to make a video while we are at the NEC in 10 days time! And I adore the tag on this plate - how great would that be on presents under the tree!
Using large stamps: tips
It's a really good idea to use large stamps with a set of flexi acrylic blocks for two reasons
- A5 size is big enough to fit big your bigger stamps on
- a thin block with 'flex' allows you to apply pressure in the centre of the image which means the ink gets pressed/transferred nicely onto the receiving surface
We recommend with Lynne Perrella stamps you use Versafine Ink by Tsukineko. It has the right consistency to ink up the stamp nicely, it's really black, and it lasts for ages, so a reinker is not really required. I have had mine for over 10 years!
I think these stamps are really different for Christmas, but reminiscent of days gone by; a theme that always is a really good fit for December.
These are all online and ready for ordering now from PaperArtsy here. Have a great week ahead!
