Thanks for popping in. Did you join in yesterday evening on the Moment of Clarity Craftalong? We took a second look at those wonderful butterflies by Cherry Green.
Stamping on parchment certainly is lovely. The properties of parchment – the stretching, the whitework, the erasing of colour, the perforating – all these things contribute to a real arty experience. I find it very creative and relaxing. And the result of that stamped black lineart on parchment always seems to hit the arty spot.
Then of course came the next Moment of Clarity idea, the LinoCuts. I am so chuffed you like our new LinoCut Stamps! I think they are pretty cool myself. So much to do with these! So many possibilities!
Dee Paramour and I have been friends for over 20 years. I consider her to be one of the top papercrafters in the UK. She helps me a lot with art and samples, and her work is always pretty formidable.
When we sent her the LinoCut stamps this is what she wrote me:
“The Lino cut stamps are very versatile designs and easy to use, giving good bold impressions that can be made into modern or traditional style cards. They are also perfect for incorporating into journals, Mixed Media and altered art projects”.
Can’t say fairer than that. Thanks Dee. She made a bunch of lovely art with them for us too….
So here’s the plan….
Next Friday, 21st May at 3pm I shall be hosting a Facebook Live Moment of Clarity Session, using these brand new Lino Cut stamps. If you fancy joining in and crafting along with me, then treat yourself while they’re on sale at a super introductory price. HERE
We will do our best to get them out to you pronto, so they are with you in good time. I shall keep you posted regarding what inks and so on you will need. Tell you what else is really fab – the triptych framers we cut to fit. So cool!!! HERE
What a lovely gift these triple mount pictures would make! And I bet our Greg Lashmar would make you the frame to fit them too, for a special occasion.
The Midnight Rose is particularly lovely in my opinion.
We added the moon in the linocut, so when you overlay the two stamps, you get a superb moonshadow. Look!
Very pleased with the way these have come out. Thanks to Lucy who worked her arty magic on these!
I am really enjoying doing the actual lino-cutting too! In fact, it’s quite addictive. I think it’s calling to me now!
Love and Hugs
