Okay, I'm back. I meant to post this yesterday and take some decent photos, but it didn't turn out like that. I was on a roll in the morning...racing through my 'to do' list, taking the dogs for a bracing walk on the beach and generally feeling good. Then in the afternoon my car had an altercation with a runaway industrial wheelie bin, and I came off worst. Dented rear, smashed window, cracked bumper. I should add that I was not in the car at the time, it was parked. Suffice to say that I now feel wrung out from all the hassle, I won't bore you with any more details, it's too tedious for words.
So my little giveaway to celebrate the hundred! And thank you for all your lovely comments too. I have a love of all things paper...pretty cards, notebooks, tissue paper, moleskines, books, binding, wrapping paper...you get the picture. Oh, and my scalpel and cutting tools. So I've been playing around turning my nightly doodles into hand carved stamps which I've then used for printing. It's been fun, and a learning curve too. Sometimes the print works well, sometimes it doesn't. And I get different results depending on the paper and it's texture.
I particularly like printing on tissue paper because it's very absorbent and I love the translucent quality.
These sheets make me smile. They work best with layers of plain white tissue paper behind to bring out the colour. Sorry for the slightly dreary photos.
These are some of the cards - all very simple, and blank inside, so use for anything and everything. I've also printed some square ones on different card, and they all come with envelopes.
This is where I'm unorganized...I haven't put any sets together yet, that's this weeks project. So what do you think? Would you like some? I'm going to give away three sets, and these will go to the first three names drawn from the hat next tuesday evening (26 August), so you have a week to leave me a comment and be included. Have to wait that long...a busy week here...my nephew and his girlfriend are coming to stay, and another friend is cycling down from near Oxford to stay for the weekend (yes, pushbike, 100 miles a day...maybe I'll photograph his thighs on arrival!!). So I must clear up the house, it's a tip.
Oh, and lurkers welcome...come and say hello!
