Pimp my Stamp!!

That's right - PIMP MAH STAMP, bab-eee. 72 hours of sleep deprivation really make you think outside the box. PS - I think they either broke or dislocated Splotchy's tail- just out from his/her little hiney. :( There's definitely something wrong. I left them a message. He/she doesn't seem to be in pain. Other than that, beasties are full of beans.

Why don't you spend a little time pimping your stamps? For so many years I've been a purist - stamp, color, cut - and that's it. I only recently started modifying the images after they are stamped. Add shading, trace them, etc. But it can do so much!

Check out the stamp set from my last post by clicking here
. See the flower I'm using from Petal Pizazz? It's cool enough on its own. But.. check it out when I outline it in black and add a little white pencil!



I did the same things for the leaves - both leaves and flowers are stamped in Riding Hood Red.

Why Riding Hood Red? Well, because it matched the DSP dots. And where did I get these dots?

Well you will just have to tune in tomorrow to find out - the answer to this question is very cool!So remember - your art doesn't have to end when you put stamp to paper...


Any little touch you add will improve it.
So experiment! Pimp your stamps!

  6. Kydia! Went and bought the zine today. I read your bio. All I can say is you are a slacker and need to stop being LAZY!

    Will read the article later as I have to stop living the "crooked" life! I guess I am- no cigs. I want to inhale poo right now-that's how desperate I am.
    Oh, did I type that?:)

    The dots- ummm, I have a guess but won't tell.
