Craft Stamper- Double Dutch



The latest issue of Craft Stamper (April) was out on the shelves yesterday and this month I was working with two Dutch stamp plates.

I have an article using Art Journey's 'Grunge' plate and a really simple technique. The magazines policy is that I can only show sneak peeks of the main items, although if you take a look at the cover the main stepped item I put together is on the right hand side :0) .




Louise of Art Journey was also really generous to donate free plates to the magazine which are up for grabs if you fill in the form :0) What have you got to lose!



The second article I was involved in compiling was a joint one with Paula, Sharon and Gail using a Home Impressions plate in the Stamping Contrast challenge. Again I used another simple technique using a splashy masterboard. Here are a couple of sneak peeks at the two pieces I made for that.





I hope that if you manage to pick up a copy of the magazine, that you enjoy the work I contributed this month.

OMG you are so talented!

I am not artistic, but i know good stuff when i see it! you must be getting quite famous. when will you have your own tv show? you should start filming yourself and how you do it and submit it to the BBC. i think we are getting tired of all the cooking shows and gordon ramsey's anger, (i actually like his shows)

Oh my gosh Jo, you are so talented. I admire the look that you create with your images!!! It's not something that I do well, so I really enjoy to look at other's creations!

Have an amazing day!

Ok I'm going to have to order a copy of this mag, your featured work looks brilliant ... Maybe you can inspire me to use the Home Impressions stamps, I have had them for a while but never actually done anything with them!
