Stamp Showcase - Silhouette Seed Heads.

I designed some new stamps last week and took them along to a workshop I was taking and completely sold out! I have now made some more so I am able to upload the designs to my web site (see top tab bar).
The most popular stamps at the moment are tending to be the silhouettes and here are some cards I made with some of them
I have never used a Big and Juicy ink pad before so I borrowed one from a friend to make this card - I think it is the Spice. I used my brayer and was amazed at how quick the colours went on. I used a post it note circle for the sun and only needed to re-ink my brayer once to achieve the above result. I then used the same ink pad to stamp the seed heads and plantain stems.
The next card took a lot longer to create

Again I used a post it note for the moon and used 3 different ink pads. This took alot of time re-inking my brayer and applying it to the card stock - great fun though. The teasels are stamped first using a dark blue ink and are stamped twice before re-inking. The plantain stems are then stamped in black ink. I then made sure that my work was completely dry before stamping the seed heads in Versamark ink. They were sprinkled with white embossing powder and set with a heat gun.
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you enjoyed your visit - see you soon - Jacqueline xx.

  1. Absolutely stunning cards Jacqueline with gorgeous colours on both. I've got that same big n juicy ink pad which I think needs an airing now as I don't use it enough.
    Thanks for the inspiration.
