The Stampman Challenge

Two weeks up already and I'm late posting this for the new stampman challenge. We had a fantastic response and saw some pretty amazing work so hoping we can tempt you again with the new theme

Take two colours

Blue and white are my colours again! I've so enjoyed creating these ATC's for the make and take we did at The Stampman last week that I thought I'd use the technique again for this.  Just Habico Chinese Symbols, stamped in Adirondak Denim ink then brushed lightly with ink around the image. Easy yet so effective.

Oh I nearly forgot, If you havn't got your craft Stamper yet you really NEED to go get it, there is a fabulous UTEE clock project by Jill, the cover stamp is designed by our very own Tracy Coates, another of the Stampman's DT, Kay Carley  is published and I have my second project, a sea chest, in there too.  Soooooo exciting!

I tried to leave a comment to say how gorgeous your CS article is when my copy plopped onto the doormat last Friday but Mr Blogger was being naughty and wouldn't let me :( Then I went away for a couple of days so it had to wait until now.

It really is a gorgeous project Michelle and the article is great. Jill's clock is quite something else too.

Love your ATC and as you say, the blue and white is soooo effective.

Hope you're feeling better now Michelle.
