Thanks for popping in. Been looking ahead to this time next week. The 2-4 show on TV. So much to show you! So much to try out before then! But so much other stuff to do too!
Let me show you just one of the new stampsets today. A typical Barbie Step by step, using a pair of stamps I drew these myself. That’ll do for a Sunday afternoon! These are sooo versatile! This one is called Peace on Earth. All 3 stampsets are 2-way overlay baubles – the positive and the negative images.
Here’s a rough idea how it works. This was a colour tester…
Stamp the outline image in an Archival ink. Stamp’s mounted on a 4”x 4” Megamount – just to give you an idea of the size.
Brayer ink colour onto the second stamp, the infill. Tune in next Sunday on HOCHANDA 2-4pm to see the various inking options – there are plenty! Line up, which is easy, and plant the second image straight over the first one.
You can see here, that the snow and moon are actually on the second stamp. Or not, if you get my drift!
Now to add more dimension and depth. More ink placed with a sponge. The second stamp does all the work now.
You can build up the colour layer by layer, going back again and again, until you are happy.
Yep. That’s how they work. Very addictive too!
There are two more: Joy to the World and Happy Christmas. Have I got a favourite? Depends which one I am playing with! I was convinced I liked Happy Christmas with the Bunting and Snowman best – until I got this one out! And then, when I got the third one out, with the nativity and the little sheep, well, that one works particularly well with Distress Oxides! So no. I don’t have a favourite. They belong together, as a collection. Like a family. And each one has its own personality, and is better suited to a certain recipient. More will be revealed this time next week!
Love & Hugs,
Oh. And they are being launched as groovi Plates too.
