Yesterday was special to me. I called my friend Lenna Andrews who's taking Stamp Carving 101 online with me and collaborating on a tag project with me. Actually, I called because I was working on Lesson 5 and needed a break, as all the carving involved was starting to make me a little nutty, not to mention my eyes were starting to blur. I left her a mssg. and when she called back we talked quite awhile, like friends do. I love when I actually have the opportunity to speak with an online friend because it's so fun being able to put a voice to a name and photo. Lenna's voice is as sweet as her photos just as I expected!
Now, for the carving. I've completed Lesson 4 which is a chevron set and am quite pleased with the results. Julie also showed another sample set which is a set of banners. I plan on making them at some point too-especially after seeing Lenna's which you can see here. I just love them!
These are my carvings along with the stamped images:
This is a sampler tag I made for Lenna and I:
And here are my finished tags for us:
I am so hooked on the Dylusions ink sprays and just couldn't resist using them again. The tags were sprayed with Bubblegum Pink and Pure Sunshine-YUM!! The quote is a Stamper's Anonymous rubber stamp. That's my first carved stamp, a heart from Lesson 1 at the bottom. Lesson 5 is just about completed so I 'll be posting that soon. Until next time...and many thanks for stopping by!
