Paperbabe Stamps Release Day

Hi everyone, I hope you've had a good week. I'm sharing my makes with the gorgeous new Paperbabe stamps Peony and bud set which Kim is introducing in a new larger clear stamp format. All the details are on the Paperbabe stamps blog with gorgeous inspiration from Kim.

I went down a mixed media media route with the stamps and played with my small gelli plate which is great as you can easily put it on a stamp block and use it as large stamp.

I've used Fresco Finish paints in the translucent colours which keeps things nice and bright over my the thick white cartridge paper. I've brayered the paints onto the gelli plate before stamping the peony stamp, bud and leaves in various order and I was pleased with the results even with the very close patterned peony image.

Of course I made quite a few prints, it's addictive once you start and then I over stamped with the peony in black ink. I've finished off with doodling in black and white pens before making up cards and tags and I have a couple of leftover pieces too.

Hope you have a good weekend.
