The Sunday Stampers; over at Hels theme for this week (ends today) was to use black in your piece. I've cheated slightly as I'm using a card I made at a class during the week, nevertheless I did make it albeit not specifically for SS. I did start something else but haven't had time to finish it. I thought I'd show it in case anyone hasn't come across this technique before.
I've used an old table mat from Ikea but you can use funky foam. As the table mat was less flixible than funky foam I had to stand on top of the stamp to get a decent impression. I should have explained first that you need to heat the funky foam then press your stamp into it. You don't need to ink the stamp first but if you're unsure then ink it. I would only recommend rubber stamps. (there is some other material which is a bit more dense and thicker than funky foam that you can use but I can't remember what it's called). I then rubbed some metallic rub-ons into the stamped piece.
Managed to complete my September pages on time, but waited till I'd prepared the October ones before posting. But looking at it on here I've realised the right hand page is a bit wishy washy so will do a bti more work on it. Haven't decided on what to use for the daily entries yet.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Not too promising here today but at least it's not pouring down like yesterday ;-)
