I have been sick this week with a chest cold (crud!) , but I squeaked out this fun thing last weekend.
Lately I have been really drawn to BIG rubbah stamps. These are two separate stamp sets that can be used together or independently of each other: Dwelling Foam Stamps & Dwelling Clear Stamps by Claudine Hellmuth.
I've had my eye on them for a LOOOONG time, but only recently decided to bite the bullet and give 'em a whirl.
Conclusion? I LIKEY!!!
The foam stamps are nicely dense and ink up exceedingly well with the Adirondack dye ink–I actually stamped it off once onto scratch paper first, before stamping it onto my project because it was pretty intense otherwise and I wanted a softer look. After stamping the foam images I stamped the outlines with black ink–I really like how they are intentionally off-register and not designed to overlay exactly or perfectly–an easy and *uber* cool retro look! *LOVE*
The foam stamps cleaned up pretty well by just holding them under the tap, and rubbing my fingers over the surface to rinse off the dye ink and then patting them dry with a cloth.
Love those little black alpha stickers and they look cute with the houses! I coated them with Glossy Accents to resemble little tiles–hard to see on camera, but IRL it's a fun, shiny effect.
Have a wondermous Wednesday!
