Let's Play with Stamps!

Hello, happy Thursday from Topflight Stamps! 

It's Day 12 the last day of our 12 Days of Christmas Deals. Today's sale is 25% off all Christmas Wreath Stamps!!

Karen Bearse here, I love, love stamps & had fun working from multiple sets this week. I made an inky page in my ARTifacts Book Collaboration.

Creating lots of color was easy using Distress Crayons & lots of background stamping. Most of the stamping was done with Archival Inks. These inks tend to create a crisp, bright image especially on an already painted background.

I decided to continue on from last week, with the same stamp Set 4 from PaperArtsy by designer Seth Apter. These letters make for great background stamps. 

I wanted to add some circles to the background as well, so the Doodle set by Zorotte was a good choice.

Next, I also added the star from the Wood Chip set, with the corresponding star stamp.

Finally, the page needed a little something else, so I chose to ink & color one of the newer stamp sets from Carabelle Studio- Steampunk the Butterfly Effect.

Here is a close-up of 2 of my elements. The Star was painted & embossed, the moth inked & colored with Distress Crayons & ink. Thanks for joining me today. If you want to see more of this project check it out on my blog. See you next week!
