Thanks for popping in. Just on my way out to the TV studios at HOCHANDA. The day has finally come to launch lovely Dee Fitzsimmon’s enchanting Character stamps, Faith, Joy, Hope and Brave:
When I first saw the finished artwork, I fell in love with her artwork. It is so gentle, yet so empowering. So she and Lucy, one of our leading Clarity designers, set about turning her coloured illustrations into stamps, so that others could play with them and get arty too.
I must admit, although I knew that we really just needed the outline, and had to empty out the eyes of pretty much any lineart, the naked stamps were a bit haunting! So we decided to add Dee’s colour artwork with each set, so you too could see the potential. These are a very new style for us, a young style. The A5 size is great for cardmaking, scrapbooking and smaller art. The A4 size is what all the mixed media artists and journaling peeps are calling for. #bestofbothworlds.
Each stampset comes with a sheet of very poignant, meaningful and uplifting words, which Dee composed. I think they make it. They take a little character, and turn her into a very strong message of art.
I hope you have time to celebrate with Dee and myself at 6pm this evening on HOCHANDA. We have been working on this project for months, and it is very exciting for Dee, because she always wanted to have her own range of stamps – and now she gets to showcase them herself on TV. #dreamcometrue. Warning: they are very VERY addictive! When I started playing with these little characters, I couldn’t stop!!!
Right. Gotta go. See you on the other side.
Love & Hugs,
