The new Tim Holtz stamping platform

I recently had the new Stamping Platform by Tim Holtz delivered and at last I've had a chance to have a play with it.

I just took some left over inked backgrounds out of my scrap box and cut this to size.

I put it in the stamp platform and took out the Victorian stamp set (again unused and waiting to be inked up) and laid out the stamps where I would like them on the background .......

....... laid the top down to pick up the stamps, inked them and stamped them.

The ink wasn't as dark as I would have liked so I was able to repeat the process to darken it ......

I used watercolours to paint the images .....

..... and then used the stamp platform again to add the sentiment.

 I just inked the edges and added it to the card to finish.

Now I am out of the boot and beginning to get the strength back in my ankle and leg I need to get up the Pack House to see what needs to be added to my items for sale, I though this might make a good start.

Thanks for stopping by.
