Simple Stamping




I'll be doing a make and take at the charity craft sale we're having at church this weekend and these are the promotional photos. The samples are pretty simple, easy enough, I hope, for non stampers to have success with. The background papers began life as white pieces of card. I've coloured them with chalk then stamped with the versamark and dusted with chalk again to create the patterns. I used to do this all the time but now I've got lazy and nearly always use patterned paper. I'd forgotten how much fun it is to do.

It's lovely to hear a few snippets about you, these two sets are gorgeous, glad you made the effort, the backgrounds look wonderful, you could'nt get this effect with papers... thanks for reminding us about this technique :)
Hope you have a great day at the craft fair.
