Great value new stamp range

(Stamped with versafine black, embossed with detail clear, coloured with a mixture of Copics and Aquamarkers and diamond glaze added to the flowers. The DP is one of the scrummy new ones from My Minds Eye)

OK folks, don't go into shock because I am doing two posts in one day..........quite remarkable after the lack of activity of late..........but it's only going to be short so I don't spend too long on the offending keyboard.

But I have been such a luck girl to get to play with some of the beautiful new La Blanch stamps and have to share..................you can find a whole range of them here at Sir stampalot.

(Stamped with archival black ink onto 600gsm Fabriano Atristico watercolour car and coloured with Aquamarkers. DP is Magnolia. Sentiment is PB 4070F)

Typically the weather has been dull all day here in the Fens and not the best of light for taking photos, so some are a bit on the gloomy side.

These new stamps are very different to any other I have ever worked with and when I first picked one up I though hmmmmmmm........here's a picture of what they look like close up.............



But wow, I need not have worried, they stamp beautifully. I have tried them with a variety of different inks, embossed with detail clear and even inking the stamp and spritzing. And the price is fabulous, check them out.

Above are the three on the cards in this post. They are all pretty fine detailed but stamp superbly - stamped above with versafine black.

(Inked stamp with Aquamraker and spritzing before stamping onto watercolour card. Sentiment is from one of the new Hero Arts sets which are shipping shortly)

This one was a really good test of the stamps, but again I got excellent result.

So in conclusion I can full recommend the stamps both for quality and value for money. Any questions about the specifics on any of my cards please mail me brenda@ibas.co.uk

Funny seeing this post Brenda as I bought some of the La Blanche stamps recently (including the fern and little girl one) and can vouch for their brilliant stamping quality and the ease of use (astounding!)
One of the ladies on my classes can't use much pressure with her hands and she loved them.
Love the first card as that stamp I haven't seen and will go on my wish list.
Hugs, Fliss xx

Stunning cards Brenda! The images are beautiful, even if the stamps do look a bit unusual.
You have me thinking that I might need to try out Aquamarkers.
Hugs, Clare x
