Stampsmith stamps

Michelle and I have been dying to bring the delights of stampsmith stamps to our crafting group for some time and next month we get to play with them. They are utterly stunning in detail and def need a brilliant ink pad such as versafine to work with. This was me playing around making a sample for the class.
Look at the detail in the ladies face - I love them - so skills for this session will include ageing, distressing, layering and going the whole vintage hog. Personally I cant wait for the 7th October so we can share with the group x
I am entering this in the fashionable stamping challenge where they want to see vintage projects - perfect me thinks x
hope your weekend is going brilliantly!


  1. This is gorgeous Janet - love the different techniques and textures and I can see why you love the stamps.
    Hugs xx
    p.s. Have fun on 7th October. :)

  2. Me thinks perfect as well Janet just right for our challenge. What lucky girls to be using such adorable stamps and your sample for them is fabulous it truly cries Vintage.
