Technique Junkies ATC with Attitude

Hey There Junkies!

The Crafty Nurse here with a little ATC attitude for you this month using one of the February new release stamps called, “Downtown Boy Kitty #SD705”.  Wow!  Does this stamp really epitomize the glorious detail you can get in a high quality red rubber stamp.  You can see every line of fur and every cross hatch in his tweet jacket.  This is a real stunner!

For my ATC, I began by dry embossing a standard 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 size piece of card stock with a Tim Holtz embossing folder.  I applied a few layers of Daniel Smith watercolors in Quinacridone Gold, Aureolin, and Burnt Umber.  Boy Kitty was stamped using Black Soot Archival Ink, then colored with Distress Markers.

My sentiment is a Tim Holtz sticker, but Pat has also created a fabulous sentiment that goes perfectly with this stamp called “Sarcasm.” 

Hope you all find time to this week to get your hands inky with a few of these new stamps from the February 2017 release.

Until next time,

The Crafty Nurse

Birthday Blog Hop for Wendy Wyman of Repeat Impressions

Good Morning!

When Wendy Wyman was just 4 years old, she announced that she was going to be an artist when she grew up.  Many years, and many sketchbooks later, she had earned a BFA in Graphic Design.
For the next 11 years found Wendy worked in advertising, freelancing, and ran a printing company.  Then it happened…Wendy’s mom became a stamping addict, and the rest was history!  It was Wendy’s mom’s encouragement that led her to turn her illustrations into fine art rubber stamps.  Wendy’s husband, Bill, was also looking for a career change, and jumped at the idea of learning a new skill.
And so….in 1996, Wendy Wyman, and her husband Bill Welsh established Repeat Impressions Stamps.  Each stamp is designed by Wendy, and manufactured by Bill in their home workshop!

Today, the design team for Repeat Impressions, the Rock Stars, have joined together with a special hop for Wendy’s Birthday!

Wendy loves ATC’s, so we’ve changed things up – instead of cards, we all created ATC’s for Wendy. They were mailed to Cheri, one of our Rock Stars, who has created a wonderful album for them, and sent them on to Wendy.

Wendy, you are one of the sweetest, and most generous people we know. As a ‘boss’, rarely do we find ourselves on a team that is more professionally run, or more organized!  You are so understanding of our personal issues, and it’s a joy to work with you and your products!

 We want to wish you a very Happy Birthday!

We look up to, admire and respect you.

May your day today be filled with love and laughter!

 And remember….the more candles you have, the bigger the wish you are allowed!

Here are my ATC’s for Wendy:

I colored the Repeat Impressions stamps with Copic markers.  For the backgrounds, I masked off different designs using thin washi tape then applied distress ink.

 Please hop along to see what uber-fabulous projects my fellow Rock Stars have created for Wendy!

Thanks for hopping with us!  If you have a minute, please go to the RI blog, The House that Stamps Built, and leave Wendy a bit of Birthday love!!!
