The Stamp Man Workshop.

The other day, when I went to The Stamp Man for the Journaling group I took some DT samples to Jill for the shop

I used a layered stamping technique to make the background, which my crafting buddy Janet taught me then stamped the guitar and removed some of the colour inside the guitar.

Alan was messing about with his music on the computer and had binned some papers he was printing, amongst them I spotted this

Which soon became this

 That's when it dawned on me that I'd better get serious so made this

Then realised that these are ok but what about the girls?

It's that Janets fault - she showed me how to do this background but it's so versatile, have a look at how she's used it here

Brill isn't it.

Anyway Mrs Stamp Man was so thrilled with them that she wants me to run a workshop for her on the 9th June so if you fancy a dabble do come play with me !  Can't wait. 

Janet and I are running a few workshops over at The Stampman in the next few months so will post dates etc on the sidebar. A new (and scary) venture for us - What if no one wants to come spend a day playing at ours!

Still nothing ventured nothing gained so that's that, we went and did it! We would love to meet some of our virtual friends in the flesh so if you're wanting some time for yourself come join us, it'll be a laugh!

See you soon
x Michelle

I bet nothing ever finds it's way into your dustbin, Michelle, it all gets recycled on the way!! I love your altered CD.
This stamp set is gorgeous isn't it and you've shown how versatile it is wonderfully, no wonder Jill was thrilled with all these.
Good luck with your new venture, I may well see you on one!!

You've made a beautiful collection Michelle, I'm sure the ladies that come to your workshop will really enjoy making them, there are a lot of techniques in them. It will certainly be a full day of crafting!!

Wow! Michelle those are totally gorgeous! I really must get those stamps out and have a go. A certain young lady sitting very close to me plays guitar and would love them- either colour scheme too!
