A couple of challenges so far today-I've been too busy trying out my new stamp making kit. The first stamp was ok-ish, I should have made the image smaller, or used a larger gel pack, but it was fun to watch it develop-I'll report back when I've made a more usable one!
The first one is for Cute Card Thursday-the theme this week was Men and boys, I had these beetles in a swap recently so thought they fitted the bill-sorry about the awful photo, its been so grey here
The second was way out of my comfort zone, I bough alchol inks from Jennie at the Artist Stamper at the Make it show in January-and this is the first time I've used them. The theme on her blog challenge is Architecture- this stamp reminds me of the Islamic architecture I based alot of my City and Guilds embroidery coursework on years ago-so I hope it counts for the challenge. It was a freebie stamp with a magazine years ago, I don't know why I don't use it more, its so versatile for cutting up and using sections, or layering like I've done here. Shame you can't really see the Dewdrops on the photo they add a lovely sparkle
