Triple Fruity Reds and Thoresby!


Here's my next project using the Thoresby stamp and the red pigment inks.

 
As you can see they come in a positive and negative design - these are from the Texture Squares set as seen on TV. Full details are on the Oak House Studio blog.

Only a few hours left but please visit the blog to see all the DTs projects this weekend and check out the Inkspired page on facebook too.   Many thanks!!

Thoresby Plaque


As you may have gathered by now you don't just have to make cards with stamps and a trawl round the pound shops usually provides some sort of base for a project.  This time I've chosen a large plaque with a raised heart in the middle.


Full details are on the Oak House Studio blog but here you can see how I created a lovely textured frame.


Once this was all dry I painted it with Decoart Media Fluid Acrylics adding the triple embossed heart too.
 
 
 
I really enjoyed making this and am off back to Poundland to buy a few more. Please leave a comment here or on the Oak House Studio blog - there are still more projects to come!!   Also check out the Inkspired page on facebook for more projects.

Inky Backgrounds


A while back I did some backgrounds using the Pure Colour Chemistry Inks on watercolour paper - I overdid the Vintage Green and when it dried I was mightily impressed with the elephant I created.


Can you see it?   Big flapping ears and 2 legs and a trunk!!   Well I can see it but the rest of my family think I'm strange......!    Anyway I made a couple of Gift Card holders. 


For some reason I can see a frog on the inside too and yes, other Gift Cards are readily available!

Anyway hope you like this idea - full details are on the Oak House Studio blog.  For more keep checking back and visit the INKSPIRED group on facebook too.

One Stamp Weekend - Thoresby


It's that time of year again when Oak House Studio have their ONE STAMP weekend - I know it's obvious but it's a weekend to use and show off just one stamp design.   This time Lynnda has chosen to use the THORESBY background.


It comes in various sizes and the ones I have include the large background stamp, the positive one and the smaller two are from the Texture Squares set designed more for silver clay, polymer clay etc.
These have just been stamped in the Triple Sky Blues pigment ink pad.


For full details of my first project check out the Oak House Studio Blog.    Hope you like it and thanks for visiting.  There will be posts from the DT  all weekend and also check out the Inkspired page on facebook for more projects.
