Friendship Card


These stamps by My Favourite Things are just up my street. I love the way you never see the faces of the people. I treated myself to four sets the other day, this is one of them. They are acrylic, so will be travelling home with me. The image was coloured with copics, I masked the main image to add some rain drops, and stamped the umbrella onto coloured paper. The umbrella, rain and puddle are all coated in glossy accents. Papers are Bo Bunny.


I spent hours yesterday packing up my stuff ready for the journey home (we still have no idea when that will be, but soon, very soon). You should see me with my stamps, I obviously can't take a load of wood mounted stamps back because of the weight, so I put them away with an anguished look on my face, as if I am abandoning a child for three months. I did hit on the bright idea of stamping a few images (well okay, a lot of images) onto cardstock to take back with me. I probably need to concentrate on acrylics in future, but then I see all these cute wood mounted stamps and can't resist. I will never go through the process of unmounting them either, I am so untidy when I work they would get lost forever in the tornado.

I really love MFT stamps...You did a terrific job on this one! I agree, the books that come w/ the cricut cartridges are not very helpful at all. I feel like I'm running blind with them.

Love the colours! My stamps have suddenly multiplied. I think they do it on the quiet when I'm not looking!!
