Hi there, Hope you all had a fabby weekend. I spent the weekend playing with the new PaperArtsy Christmas stamps. They are called Egg & Nog - you can see them HERE
Half of hem I made quite modern by using watercolours and 7gypsies Hudson Valley papers and of course my favorite - Stardust stickles ( My only nod to stickles )
The other half I did a little more traditionally by using Blonde Moments pearl pigment powders (Festive Bronze, Festive Candy, Festive Gold and Festive Copper), 7gypsies Zanzibar papers and green shimmer card.
I am not sure which are my favorites yet. Can't quite decide, but it just shows how the same stamps look totally different. I was dying to do them in my usual pink and turquoise, but resisted the urge ( for how long I'm not sure ).
Last night I should have been working on my brochure, but my art journal winked at me and made me play. I prepped loads of background papers using Claudine Helmuths new Studio Line by Ranger.
I absolutely love these paints. they are more of an artist quality and mix beautifully. The delivery should be here in time for the Great Northern papercraft show this weekend, so I will talk about them more later ( I must warn you though, once you use them you will want them all. Be afraid - be very afraid! )
