New, new, new....!

PaperArtsy has done it again!

Deadly Danger Canvas using HPHW05EZ by Helen Chilton

I love collage stamps, especially ones as detailed as these,and especially skulls and Hallowe'eny things! I've pulled out bits of text and stamped it onto copper to go round the frame.

Poison Frame using HPHW05EZ by Helen Chilton

Here I've used a frame that I already had and just painted it and Treasure Golded it (is that a word?) to fit the colour theme. I had great fun making tiny images on shrink plastic to add as embellishments. I shrunk them all in the oven then I don't have to watch them all curling and sticking (far less stressful!)

Oh Christmas Tree using HPXM08EZ and HPXM09EZ by Helen Chilton

I love all the text in these sets, the fact it's all in different fonts and that you can build them up to create Christmas shapes, in this case a tree and in the next, baubles. I added chain and brads and shell beads to add texture and decoration.

This time instead of stamping in black, I've embossed in white on the darker background and used a black pen to bring out the details.

Christmas ATCs using HPXM08EZ and HPXM09EZ by Helen Chilton

The curlicue Christmas Tree in HPXM08EZ is fantastic for repeat stamping to make backgrounds. I like the fact that it's so  easy to ink up just one word from a stamp as in the 'Christmas' border.The detail on the Father Christmas collage is amazing - you can even see the candles on the tree. I added a tiny reindeer from one of the other stamps.

Wonderful stamps - I've really enjoyed being able to have a play with them. Many thanks Leandra and Mark and all at PaperArtsy..

Fantastic samples... the Halloween ones in particular are blowing my mind! Glorious colouring of the images to make them really sing, and I love the shrunken ones. Am I going to have to give in to shrinky dink world after all?! Fabulous inspiration.
