The Stamp smith challenge


How about this for a wake up call? So bright and believe it or not my second post of the day, so make sure you have a quick nosy below ;0). I love the stamps from The Stampsmith most are very detailed but these are for all the men in my life ;0) this plate has Jimmy Hendricks, Jim Morrison (a favorite) Janis Joplyn and John Lennon I don't know if they actually make them any more so I am glad I gave in and bought them.


Here's a wee close up as there are lots of layers. The Stampsmith are asking that we use a sketch as a starting point this time so I have left out a circle and followed the rest with lots of psychedelic colours of alcohol ink to give it a real retro feel. I do hope you find time to join in to. Love Dawn xx

Really wicked project! Love the colors - they suit the image perfectly! The Stampsmith does still carry these images - and so many more famous people images (conveniently located on The Stampsmith Yahoo Group)!! Thanks so much for joining The Stampsmith Challenge this week! Best of luck in the draw!
Val :)
