Hi, peeps! Today I've made a pretty background panel using some of the stamps from HousesExtras.
My trusty Distress Inks are never far away when I'm using colour, and the Minis are perfect for creating custom palettes. I made a palette on an acrylic block, and laid the stamps face-down onto my stamping block so that I could use the reverse surfaces for solid stamping.
(Oh - see all those bits of washi tape on the stamp pack? Shery carefully wraps my goodies in tissue paper and seals them with strips of washi tape, and I can't bear to throw it away so I carefully peel the strips off and stick them to the sets in that delivery. It also helps me to easily pick out the stamps from each release - method in the madness.)
Anyway - back to business. You need to give the palette a light spritz with water before you stamp, otherwise the suction on the reverse sides will be too great and your stamps will stick on your palette. I know this thing.
