Sunday stamper - Friend

Yet another canvas!! Used inks and ink pads and stamped in stazon. Used some Grunge board mini letters. The image is quite dark but I actually like this effect.

Sunday Stamper - France/Paris

Two weeks ago the theme for Sunday stamper was France/Paris. I have made another small canvas for this challenge. I have used paints on the canvas and for the backgrounds on the stampboard. I have then used stazon for the images. The corner image was stamped on the canvas and I then stamped the ladies faces on to tiny domino and placed them over the top. I have triple embossed the main image and used diamond glaze on the domino.

Sunday Stamper - Black and White

This weeks Sunday stamper was black and white. I came across some mini canvas easels on my travels and thought I'd use one for this weeks challenge. I am altering a book at the moment and I had some parts of some pages left over so I have used them to cover the canvas. I then blacked the edges using Stazon Ink Pad. I painted the easel in black paint.

I used a piece of ATC size stampboard and made a very light background using silver ink. I then over stamped using black Stazon and a beautiful Paris stamp (hey this could double up as the Sunday stamper France/Paris challenge I haven't completed yet! :-) ) I then triple embossed the image and attached it to the canvas.

I added some black felted ribbon down the side of the canvas next to the image and added one of my favourite embellishments. I then finished off with some gems.

I am very please with the result, hope you like it too. Tina xx

Birthday Card for Hels

Here is the birthday card I made for Hels. Again using my stampscapes stamps! They work beautifully on gloss card. I mounted the picture on to some paper and then on to the card. I stamped a corner stamp in versamark ink and embossed with silver embossing powder. I then stamped a "Friends" quote using the same inks as the main image and mounted this to the card.

Canvas Crazy - Another Stampscape!

I am still going strong with my stampscapes stamps! I just love using them. I have made a canvas for a friends birthday, I covered the canvas with Gesso first to give it a good base and left to dry. I then use an ink pad with 5 inks in it to give the tones. I then finished by stamping some words around the edge of the canvas.
