April Cling Mounted Stamps
3 CommentsSaturday, 28 March 2015 | Admin
We launched our new stamps for April this week and I wanted to share a couple of cards that I've made with them.
This one features the Auricula Script stamp, a flower that I have always loved.
And the second features the delicious Birdcage Collage stamp.
Both cards have been painted with Brushos - I have a selection of colours mixed up with water which I store in little dropper bottles so I can just put a little out in a palette and use them as liquid watercolours. The auricula was stamped on watercolour paper and the brushos behaved much better on that than they did on the thick white card I used for the birdage, where it did feather out a bit more than I was expecting (don't look too closely at the berries!).
Many people think that I do the drawing for our stamps, but it's a very talented lady called Sue Page who is our star artist. She sends me her hand drawn originals and I scan them and process them to make them suitable for manufacturing stamps. Most of the time her artwork stands alone, but occasionally I enjoy collaging her drawings together to form new designs which is what I have done with three out of the four of this month's new stamps.
Which one is your favourite?
