Reinker time...

,,, over on the PaperArtsy blog. They've had all sorts of interesting projects using all sorts of reinkers.
I've used Distress Oxide reinkers on my canvas along with some Tracy Scott stamps:

In the round...

I went a bit mad with this project and made a 3D village with Melina's stamps:

This sort of project is just up my street! Bright colours, lots of fiddly bits, working out how to get it all put together - lots of fun.
I discovered several things - the multi surface paints go on beautifully without obliterating the stamped lines; you can stamp the houses close enough on the back to make a double sided image; you can make a 3D house out of part of the large house; the flowers also make very useful back to back shrubs.

Thanks for looking!

Row upon row...

What I love about these houses is how easy it is to stamp long rows and also build them up one behind the other as I've done here:

I've die cut and raised the centre, folding the houses to go round a corner:

The background is done with some of the new Dinky stencils and coloured texture paste. The wording uses Tim Holtz rub ons.

Thanks for looking!

Follow the rainbow...

I hope you had a chance to watch That's Crafty! on Hochanda with Jo yesterday and see all the new stamps and other products.
Here are a couple of my samples in full:

The stone path uses the stones under the houses and the swirls in the sky are stencilled with Interference paint.

I've folded the large house to make it 3D:

I've used Melina's Sketchy Houses set here, but there are three other new sets as well.

Thanks for looking!

Final peek...

Lastly I've gone a bit 3D - had lots of fun with this one:

I've used just one of the new That's Crafty! stamp sets, there are three more as well and lots more samples from the rest of the DT.
So, tune in at 10.00am tomorrow on Hochanda to see what we've all been up to!

Thanks for looking!

Let's get trading...

A bit difficult in this case as I've hung mine up, but Artist Trading Coins are the theme on the PaperArtsy blog at the moment.

I've made mine using Lynne Perrella stamps:

There are going to be lots of different ideas over the next two weeks.
