UKSA Stamping Technique – Be The Rainbow

Over at UK Scrap Addicts this month we are looking at stamping techniques but we’re a bit thin on the ground so I’m sharing this layout from a few months ago that I didn’t get around to sharing at the time.

I actually created the layout at a Go Go Getaway retreat for a challenge about using art crayons. I forgot mine so Essie Jane (also on the UKSA team) kindly lent me her Distress Crayons, which I had never used. She suggested I use them as a stamp and here we are!

I was working on a set of layouts about a visit to a craft studio to pass the time during a very very wet school summer holiday. I was using the Pink Paislee Hello Sunshine collection which has lots of raindrops, boots and rainbows (so is perfect for right now!) and lots of lovely colours to echo the painting in the pictures.

We got a teeny border stamp pack in the retreat kit which had 4 different patterns in so I layered them up using different colours. I really love the effect! I definitely want to use this techniques again, but I always say that and then I forget again…

I think they add just the perfect amount of detail and interest and a little pop of subtle colour. It was the perfect set of fun stamps for this arty themed layout too.

Do you use much stamping on your layouts? We’d love to see!

Due to ongoing health and personal issues, I’m afraid I am closing the shop for 6 months.  I very much hope to be back but I will only be able to judge this once I have gone through the next few months.  All outstanding orders will go out next week (commencing 15th June).  I will be keeping the blog side of the website going and I may pop up on social media sometimes but I may have to take a fair bit of time out while I process everything and work through treatments etc.  I know that particularly my pre-cut customers will be disappointed and I am so sorry to let people down but sometimes being strong involves having to give something up.  It’s not been an easy decision I can tell you.  Thank you so much to everyone that has supported me in the last 4 years, in particular my wonderful design team.  Seeing my designs on layouts capturing people’s precious memories is something I will always treasure.  Best wishes xx
