Craft Stamper Oct 09
A 3rd post today! Boy they are coming like buses!!
I wanted to mention that Kay has a project in the October issue with her stamps and it's featured on the front page!
Kay has used the Dainty Dragonfly unmounted stamp sheet with shrink plastic in a 4 page feature and gives step by step instructions using the intaglio technique. As Kay mentions in the article, it is a very addictive technique which involves stamping into the shrink plastic to create dimension. I LOVE doing this, it's very satisfying. You need to use proper red or grey rubber stamps, as the plastic needs to be VERY hot, so don't attempt it with your clear stamps or you could be using the stamp as an added embellishment!! Kay also uses Tombow brush marker pens that can be found here and other items we stock. We do have the background papers that Kay has used in stock too but they are not on the website, so you may need to phone about these.
Oh, I also wanted to mention that the dragonfly on this sheet co-ordinates with the free dragonfly stamp Kay designed for the August issue of Craft Stamper magazine and, if you'd like to see more ideas using the Dainty Dragonfly sheet, do visit our gallery. If you have time to look around the gallery you will find over 1,300 photos of card ideas using Aspects of Design unmounted stamps. There is an album for nearly all of our stamp sheets plus some other bits and pieces there.
Will be back later with a sneak peek for you of something new!
