Happy Mail Day!

The postie brought be some ‘stash’ yesterday and earlier in the week…so I had a quick play.

Love these stamps (Bee Crafty) but the XL is a little limiting and would work much better in my journals…something to try tomorrow, along with the other one I haven’t yet used! For some reason, today has turned out to be a green day…I was just trying out some of the newer Oxide inks for a change. Must confess I’m not as wowed this time around – the colours aren’t my natural choices.

BRAVE HOPE

This is a stamp set I’ve coveted for a little while, so I decided to go for it. I tried two different looks, again using the newer Oxides in the first, which I have mixed feelings about. It’s moody but I think I should’ve added some focal stamping to complete it. I much prefer the Oxides for background work and stencilling, rather than stamping, as I’ve done here.

TIMELESS

This one I like more, but that’s partly because I went back to my trusty Versafine ink for the focal images..

LOVEPRAISLIVE

And just to prove how versatile Lin’s lovely grasses stamp is, I made a CAS card with it.

CAS SYMPATHY

I’d like to enter this one into the Clean and Simple challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More.

This is a journal page…

Back soon.

Thanks for looking.

God Bless!

I've never tried to stamp with DO, but like you I have found the backgrounds successful.
Thanks for sharing at ATSM. :)

I am not so happy to stamp with the DOs but I have seen some examples by others that look great! That said -I love all of these Cath! The first is my favourite as I do love that image! Hugs,Chrisx
