Tip of the Day

Do you sometimes find yourself stuck with a LO, because you can't find a stamp image you wanted?
Yes.. it happens to me many times.
Esp when I need a background stamp and there I wish I bought more stamps.
But fret not!
I realised there are many things at home which we can use for our background stamp.
Today i find this cute dollhouse Ellise has. It has so many textured surface. Perfect for stamping.
I use distress ink over the surface. Get a baby wipe near by. Clean immediately after stamping.
See this cute scallop surface.
See this cute 'wood grain' texture:
See the final results on paper. Lovely.. I like the one at the bottom left.
How about you? Which is your fav?
I could use this on a mini album ....... for a textured background stamp!
So, go around your kitchen, kids toys and stamp right away.
A word of caution: Do this when your kids are sleeping or else they will scream!
