I had a wonderfully relaxing day with my friends Susan & Ruth
as they attempted to teach me the art of stamping.
Susan was brilliant at showing me all the different techniques and tools available for this massively popular craft.
But you can see as usual I went off doing my own thing. In the end I only used one stamp, a blue ink pad and a set of alphabet stamps with a black ink pad.
Of course the Doodly Birds would not be left out of the fun. To get the four birds I drew them on the four square pad with my black Pilot fineliner then quickly transfered the images onto the blue stamped background. Taa-dah here are the results.
We had tea and cupcakes when we arrived, followed by a cooked lunch and my contribution, homemade vanilla & meringue ice cream. We finished the day with more cupcakes and a cuppa.
Thank you Susan I really enjoyed myself and learned a new craft in great company.
Watch out Tracy I think Sue's making a takeover bid.
