Sunday 8 May 2011


I'm surprising myself today - not only have I done my ATCs for the BF forum swap so early in the month, but I've just completed my inchies for the monogram swap this month. I used La Blanche monogram foam stamps, stamping with memeno tuxedo black on to Tutti Fruitti paper (scraps that have been in my box for ages) and I went over the letters with copic C-7, a bit less stark than using black. I stuck these to mountboard to make them more substantial. This is the second set I've made - I swiped the first set with versamark and heat embossed with UTEE, but lost the clarity of the letters - it's a pity it didn't work out.

This is also for:

Just for fun: size matters (inchies)

Totally stampalicious: kickin' it old school - stamp that hasn't seen ink for at least 6 months
Mark's finest papers speedy the cat 54: use paper, stamps and inks, but no embellishments
Rubber cafe: anything but a card
Craft your passion 56: anything goes
