these pine cones are so versatile - they work great as a focal image and as a background image. the solid bold scrolls are just gorgeous embossed. they are sold together as a collection and the largest image is approx. 3 1/4" x 3 1/4". This collection is UNMOUNTED - we suggest Tsukineko's Tack N Peel which makes it FAST, CHEAP and EASY to use all of your unmounted stamps as soon as they arrive!
Once again i have my mom to thank for her beautiful rendition of my attempts at explaining what i was looking for!
and now the stamps in action!
my first two samples use the sketch from MJ this week->
This is a technique we did last month at my SU tech club meeting - stacey always has something awesome lined up! i stamped on tissue paper with memento cottage ivy and rich cocoa - i ADORE the dew drops because the shape and size make it so easy to ink up a stamp in different colors with alot of precision. next i crumpled it, flattened it back out and then placed it on a piece of cardstock covered with adhesive. when i flattened it there were little wrinkles (hard to see in the pic). the ornament is seasonal grungeboard covered in antiqued bronze crackle paint - both available at Pez-A-Doodle.
and here is the second sample:
This sample uses one of the pine cone scrools as the focal image and then others as backgrounds. the main piece uses a technique from tag 2 of the recent 12 tags of christmas over on tim holtz's blog. i have been having alot of fun experimenting with all the ways to use these stamps!
i added distress inks and finished it off with a piece of copper german scrap. the sentiment is a studio G of course!!!
This set of four elegant stamps is available for shipping now! i will have more samples posted for you tomorrow!!
