Don't know if I posted this already but I noticed that some of my older unmounted cling film stamps were slowly melting onto their acrylic storage sheets. I was very distressed by this, honestly. This of course led me to re-vamp my storage system. Long story short: Two craft cubes from Michaels, 100+ empty cd cases and my stash of EZ mount have been called into action. Its kind of an interesting process as I actually get to lay hands on some stamps that I haven't used in a while....gasp! I'm quite proud to say that I still love all the stamps I have except for one that puzzles me completely but now I don't want to get rid of it because to do so would be, in an odd way, to admit defeat. Once the process is completely over and done with I will post a picture.
The other side of the top image. Again the image on the left was a peel off and the image on the right is a stamped and embossed image. When I was getting into the groove of practicing, I started to think, "I'm going to run out of peel offs!" But then my inside voice told me, "stupid, you have, like, a bunch of stamps. Just stamp and emboss, idiot!" Really my inside voice is usually quite supportive but this time she was directive...no comments from the peanut gallery! =P
I love colouring but sometimes I pick really odd colour combinations that are just....off. So part of my practice is to work on my realistic colour combos...that's why I've made swatches next to the image so I know what works and what doesn't.
Well, I was going to post my PTI order but I think I'll wait on doing this since I seem to have run on about water colouring. Hey, look, no glitter!
I'll be back later on this weekend with some PTI goodness...
Stamp on my friends, stamp on...
