Been a very happy stamper





















As i couldn't make it to the secc i treated myself to a grab bag of 100 hamptom arts stamp from ebay.
A real steal at under £20.

I have been very good and put all my unmounted and ez mounted stamps into 2 file folders they wouldn't fit in one oooooooops. Took me a few days though lol but i eventually got round to playing with my hampton art stamps and some paper artsy stamps and cats life stamps.
I used alcohol inked paper and stazon for these atcs. I am very mean with my alcohol inks so i tend to do 3 A6 backing papers from each inked bit of felt (yes i reuse my felt to haha) i use blender to refresh the ink and get a paler effect each time.
The gorgeous collage used as a background on the imagine and trying to be good is from my grab bag, as is the love poem background, postmark stamps and saying stamp. The imagine stamp is from cats life and the others are paper artsy.
I just need to tell myself i do not need any more stamps now.
These atcs need new homes if anyone fancies one let me know.

These are great. I'd love to swap one if you've got any still left. My favourites are the top and bottom ones. (You can see my available ATCs in my Photobucket - linked on the top right of my blog).

A girl after my own heart, i keep all my used felt and reuse it too! I don'pay silly money for the refill pads either, a sheet of white craft felt costs about 50p and gives you loads of pads.
love your work.
