Morning all !
The stamp is an awesome one from Mama Elephant called ‘Tree Friends‘. I’ve not yet had a chance to use it as I only recently bought it, although the stamp itself is a couple of years old (wish they’d bring out some matching die cuts!). It has lots of cute woodland animals and woodsy elements, but I decided to go for the piece de resistance – the large tree stamp. It’s so detailed, I thought it would be perfect for coloring with my Prisma Colors.
I stamped the tree with Stazon in black as I knew I was going to be blending with Gamsol. I don’t know about you but i often find my Stazon black ink doesn’t get a great impression first time. As this was such a large stamp I decided to use my MISTI to ensure that I could re-stamp if the impression wasn’t great the first time – lucky I did – the inner part of the tree was extremely splotchy the first time!! I stamped again and bam! perfect. LOVE the MISTI!
