Stampers' Sampler blast from the past
What with Blogger playing me up and also being maaaaaaaad busy with 'secret stuff' for publishing and also new stamp designs etc, my blog has been a bit lonely.
Anyway, today it's time for a post.
Talking of magazines, I had a big big suprise when I discovered that I had a couple of items using Third Coast stamps in the latest Stampers Sampler. These pieces were sent in 5 or 6 years ago!!! So never give up hope of seeing your items you send overseas published. The images I have of them are not good. It was back in the day when clarity of a photo didn't seem that important to me it seems!! haha! So thankyou to Stampington for getting the focus right on these two.
This card I remember being really pleased with myself for doing lol...I'd stamped on purple acetate for the first time and flipped it over to create a mirror image.
This is an altered tobacco tin. The edge was all thick gold utee I think (?) with a really small perfectly formed shell in the centre of the opening.
But even though time has passed on these two, I still like them and its not often I can say that about pieces of mine that are 5+ years old :0) (ideas and techniques move so quickly don't they).
Another post tomorrow. Playing catch up :0)
