Something Oriental coming your way.......

........Sheena Douglass is launching a new range of Oriental stamps, embossing folders and papers this coming Friday on Create and Craft, there will be lots of shows but the first will be Friday at 8am.
Here's one of the samples I've made.....

I bought a pack of cheap paper fans from Hobbycraft with the idea of stamping on one of them.  Well I'll be honest the first one was a disaster!  So kept stamping on the same one until I came up with the best way to get a decent result. Found that opening it as wide as was possible and then laying it on a folded towel before stamping was best.  The towel seemed to give it the extra 'squish' that was needed to get a good impression on such an uneven surface. After I'd stamped the images they were coloured with watercolours.....(not to wet!) and then I added some distress inks to the edges and some gold gilding wax.

  1. very creative. love it. stamps are lovely

  2. I feel your pain! Stamping onto the paper lampshade was a nightmare too. Funnily enough I employed a folded towel. Your fan is FAN (!) tastic. I can honestly say this has been a great set of ingredients to work with. Go Sheena! Go Sheena! Go Sheena!
