First Attempts....

I have a habit of ordering products and forgetting about them pretty soon after they arrive. Recently I came across my Motorcycle stamp from the Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue and decided I would ink it up for the first time.

The sentiment is embossed, but you can't really tell from the photo. It was my first attempt at embossing. I have used Aqua Painters to colour the stamp. It was also my first attempt at water-colouring, except for at a Paper Diva's Team Training Session.

Cardstock: Pacific Point, Bashful Blue, Whisper White
Stamps: Motorcycle, So Happy For You (SAB 2011)
Ink: StazOn Jet Black, Basic Black, Bashful Blue, Garden Green
Other: Hodgepodge Hardware, Aqua Painters, Distressing Tool from Cutter Kit, Embossing Buddy, Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder


  1. This is one of my favourites of yours Sharlene. Its so hard to do male cards for a blokey, bloke.
    I think this fits the bill. Like it a lot!

  2. Nice, I got to use the motorbike stamp yesterday too, it's an awesome stamp. Well done
