You Gotta Larf!

 Good morning and a very happy Friday, welcome to the weekend! Today I'm over at the Ink Art Designs Stamping Playground with my chippie mini journal covers.

I've recently got the Katzelkraft Mordents set from Dot,  and wanted to try them out. This is 2mm chipboard that was left over from a journal, and it's been cut with one of Eileen Hull's journal dies. This is the perfect size when you just want to play!

Stamp companies are very clever aren't they in the way that they package the stamps. I always want my stuff to look exactly like they've shown it! So with this in mind, I gave my chippies a couple of coats of gesso, and a layer of white acrylic to start with. Then I stamped the splatters from my old Katzelkraft set with archival inks.

And a bit of sponging around the edges in Distress Inks.

These are my stamps, I thought some of Carmen's Veranda sentiments would go perfectly with the fun images.

They all have a couple of layers of different Mod Podge on them, I've used matt, gloss, and even sparkly! You can't really tell on the photo's but you can in real life.

They've been coloured with alcohol markers and my favourite Prismacolour pencils. They are already at home in my craft room, in that I very nearly stood my coffee on one! I'm not really sure what I'll use them for, but I'm thinking of turning them into a couple of concertina books.

The stamps can be found here in Dot's store.

Have a great day whatever you are doing, and thanks so much for looking x

  7. Sue what are you doing to me haa haa.. oh how I have missed you blog and dry humour, you would be the idea person to be locked down with hee hee. You've done a cracking job on matching them to the stamp cover, I especially love the pencils, with the sentiment it's extremely well matched and reminds me of my January as what I put down on paper there is no way anyone would like me or my art ever again, way to dark & shouty :D.
    Thanks for today Sue, think i'm nearly done with the stalking x

  8. These are great, love the quotes :)

    All the best Jan
