My First Stamps

After seeing so much about stamping on other blogs & tutorials, I decided to give it a go myself. I received my first stamps from ebay today.

Wish me luck and please give me lots of advice !

Stamping is absolutely fantastic for the huge variety of techniques and images that add a richness to your art.

If you have any stamping questions don't be a stranger. Happy to help you became a convert.

One tip I would give is always stamp your stamp onto scrap paper before committing to your good stuff. For lots of reasons.

I am just getting started on stamping myself, so I would not presum to advise anyone else. However, if you want inspiration, just watch Barbara Gray, and Sharon Duncan - they are both brilliant.

Hi Colleen, nice to meet you :-)

MaggieC, thanks for the suggestions. I will have to check them both out for some help getting my 'stamp' on. Nice to meet another stamping newbie too.

WOYWW's have wonderful suggestions and tutorials on their blogs I now check out these sites and get amazing ideas. I also got a Cuttlebug a couple of months ago and it has been so much fun embossing & die cutting. Hope you enjoy stamping.

Thankyou both for your visits. Today my fingers are covered in ink from my first night of stamping experimentation. Some of it wouldn't scrub off lol But it was fun!
