Animal Spirit amazing stamps


Hiyya Peeps, I've got some Stampalot samples again but something a bit different card wise using some stamps with absolutely amazing artwork. They are called Animal Spirit designed by Sue Coccia for Earth Art International and you can find them here.

I also need to let you know that the long awaited re-stocks of TH tattered floral have landed and you will find them here and also the new Tilda Sweet Rainbow range are presently being uploaded.


This picture is a close up of just one element within the swan stamp so you can appreciate the incredible detail within each one. I stamped with versfaine black and embossed with detail clear and then coloured with Copics. The DP is from the new Bo Bunny range. I am still very much at the experimental stage trying to decided which elements need picking out to give best effect.

Also a reminder to you all that Saturday is Allsorts second Birthday and we have some special celebrations and prizes to share. Now I know this is totally bad timing on my part as it's my turn to host the challenge and I am in Edinburgh for a long weekend as three of the children are running the marathon.....well should be lurking injuries allowing.
So I have scheduled all the posts and am keeping everything crossed that Blogger's in a good mood and does not throw a hissy fit like last weekend.

The butterfly stamps from the same Animal Spirit range, stamped and coloured in exactly the same way as my top card, but this time I added two coats of UTEE after colouring and it worked beautifully.

Hope all goes well with the Marathon runs. As for the stamps - stunning & I love how you have used the butterfly to tie in with the patterned paper. The swan is delightful. The intricacy of the patterning is eye-catching & I love how you have used that in two different ways.
Take care with the travelling etc.....
