Stamping type ...

I decided to forget all about matching colours this evening and just use the whole rainbow!  I've also had a bit of a giggle at my own expense. You see the challenge at "Less is More" this week involves 'Using more than One Stamp' but there is no prize for using the most - if there was I think I could possibly be a contender.  I've used 27 stamps! - check it out:

I've used the sketch from the new challenge at STAMPlorations:

I masked off a panel, randomly stamped letters, stamped the typewriter, cut it out and mounted it on dimensional adhesive.

I used the following:

Distress Inks - Fired Brick, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn, Salty Ocean and Seedless Preserves
STAMPlorations Vignette: Old Type
Happy Day Clear Stamps - free with a magazine



  1. You're definitely on a roll with this challenge Elaine, I love this one. Think you should get a prize just for having the patience to use (and clean!) all those stamps
