Just a quickie before dinner but I just had to share my newest homemade stamps.
I started with very geometric shapes in yesterdays post but I got this idea in my head (you know how we artsy-fartsy types are, always dreaming something new up) and thought I'd carry my stamp creating a step further.
These are today's creations in my stamp making venture...
Okay, they're all my favorites...the stars (which will be getting good use in my "Sparkles" Pretty Girl later tonight), and how can you not dig the leafy branch, the leaf, the harlequinesque (yea, made that one up myself just now) diamonds...just all of them. I really like them.
And, I'm going to go ahead and admit it but don't go telling anyone I was on here bragging on myself or anything, okay?....OMG I am so impressed with myself and the feather!
This feather is the BOMB!
Look at the detail!!!
Wow, huh? Yea, me likey! LOL
Oh, and someone (was it you, Teale) mentioned the durability of the foam and having to use acrylic paints only on them. Well, before I began my little venture into stamp creating I tested out something to see if I would be able to use them more than once (cause that would really piss me off if I put all this time and effort into something that I could only use once!) and this is what I found....
You are not stuck using just acrylic paints. If you want to use inks or chalks, you can. To clean these babies you just have to be gentle and use Simple Green household cleaner. It won't deteriorate the foam and will clean the ink off like butta!
YEA...these babies will go the distance...trust me.
Now get out there and make ya some, hear me? LOL
Until next time...Happy Creating!!!
Peace & Love,
