New find at CHA-Stamps by Me and Carrie Lou

At CHA this week, I met Susan Silk, representative for Me and Carrie Lou Stamps, and found these to be both beautiful and of the highest quality red rubber. They have a cling backing for placing on your acrylic blocks, so they are a dream to work with. Here you see the Birdhouse Flowers image, stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with a mixture of gold detail and gold tinsel embossing powders. This gives AMAZING sparkle!
The colors I chose are soft (their gallery will give you more vibrant examples) as these are SO easy to work with, and have a great range of looks for each image. I used Copics V000, BV02, Y00, G000 and G09. The halo is a yellow water color pencil. I can't wait to use the other images, and to give this one a whole new look!! Please check out their site, and see what I mean! If you love Victorian and Christmas, you will really love Me and Carrie Lou!!!
I'll be back soon with more...
Happy crafting ~
