Have Your Cake And Eat It!
My project today is based on using the Teresa Collins stamp maker – yes, finally, I get to make my own stamps! For the layout overall, I’ve gone with one of my favourite paper manufacturers – My Mind’s Eye and their Stella & Rose range.
Firstly, get your pencil and paper to the ready and have a doodle. I’m not good at drawing, so my mine tend to be more like messy scribbles, which isn’t good for scanning.
Therefore, after I’ve doodled, I then trace the image onto tracing paper – the lines are more clearly defined and then override the pencil by outlining in black. Then, scan the traced drawing as a jpeg, using black and white mode – not greyscale.
Then print onto the film and make your stamp following the instructions that came with the stamp maker, which are very easy to follow.
Once you’ve made and trimmed your stamp to size – voila!! You’ll probably be a bit neater than me!
