Craft Stamper October issue

The latest issue of Craft Stamper is now available and its another wonderful issue. Lots of inspirational pieces.

I have the 'In Close Up' feature this month where the magazine looks at a single piece of work in more detail and I'm asked to give tips and ideas that I think might be useful when creating similar pieces.



I'm not allowed to show the whole item for a few months yet as that's magazine policy, but I can show a sneak peak. The colours of the background have come out a little muddy in the magazine, but these pics give you an idea of the crisper turquoise colours I used.



I was also included in the group of artists for the Stamping Contrasts challenge where we we asked to make two items using this fun plate from Elusive Images available from Graphicus.



Here is a peek at part of one of the items I made.



If you havent seen the new look Craft Stamper magazine in recent months please try and pick one up as its most definitely worth buying and covers all styles and levels of experience. This month there is also a free blossom stamp on the front cover.

It is a great article, Jo, and the spring card is fab, too. I really love the background to the canvas, it is very soft and subtle.
