Rubber Dance - Artist Plate Stamp Set and a 'Mop Up Cloth'

I was delighted to be asked to be a Guest Designer for Rubber Dance Stamps on their Blog last week.
I had such fun with this 'Artist Plate' set of stamps, designed by Katy Leitch.
I always keep 'Mop Up' cloths on my desk to collect all the drips of paint (Brusho Paints in particular) odd splashes from dripping with ink stencils and 'plonk it down 'ere why don't yer, coffee cup ring stains! The cloths are strong, recycled, paper cleaning cloths. I've used one here, cut with a Circle Die for this background.

So quick and easy to stamp on using Black Archival Ink and the Paint Brushes from the set.

A White Pigment Ink pen to highlight the Brushes images and a few flicks of black gesso from a paintbrush on top of the background to add more interest...... job done. 
I really enjoyed my Guest Blogging day. Many thanks for asking me, Bibi and Katy.
Thank you for popping over to look at my blog .

Rochester Workshop February 2016 - Group One Results

Last Saturdays Workshop was fantastic! We had a great time and here are some of the results from Group One Ladies... the hall lighting is not brilliant and some pictures of the beautiful Art Work did not come out at all.... I'm going to have a rethink and 'up' my picture taking skills on Workshop days!

Group Two this Saturday ... I cannot wait!
