Stamping

Postby Carolyn » Thu Feb 23, 2012 11:13 pm

So what are you guys up to? Are you still stamping? Do you just stamp and colour with Copics and similar pens? This is something I have not tried, I still just use watercolours and even got the H2Os out the other day - is this old hat?

I don't have copics. I use watercolour paints and watercolour pencils. I also use distress inks and chalks. It depends what it is really. I don't stamp that much except at Christmas.

I have been stamping onto patterned paper and doing some paper piecing and then colour the rest of the stamp with Promarkers. If I am using watercolours I then use proper watercolour paper to stamp on and don't do paper piecing as I don't like the contrasting change in texture.

I don't really 'do' any style, method or technique. I just do whatever comes to hand at the time!

And no Carolyn, IMO there is nothing old hat about using any medium or method if you enjoy it. At least, I hope not as I am always going back to older materials and ideas....

Just enjoy.

An idea I heard today on C&C was to use petroleum jelly on the stamp and stamp it. Then rub ink over and around; leave it for a little while and then rub over it .... apparently it was a way of using a resist technique from several years ago.

I stamped and made some really simple cards recently mainly so they were flat for posting

Didnt even emboss the. Just dye inks and my trusty ELC paints

I have been looking at Hero Arts, Unity and Stamping Up there sure are some lovely stamps around. Maybe i need some new ones

Not heard of Unity - but do like Hero Arts, often stop by their blog.

Maybe you need to get some when you go to the US :) If not when you get back maybe we need a trip to Stamp Addicts....
