Stamp head ATCs (last one - I promise!)

These really are the last of my adventures with postage stamp heads. For one thing, I'm mostly just down to standard queeny head stamps now. I thought I would try something other than magazine images with them. Mixed results methinks. The first lot are a mixture of a vintage style couple stamps that I forgot I had (not sure whether I prefer them landscape or portrait) and some body stencils. The second lot are with my Stampotiques, as they are the only other body stamps I have. The most detailed ones don't work so well for me as they fade into the background, so I have just chosen the remaining ones. I have done more, but they are much of a muchness so these are just examples.

Thanks for looking.

Stamp Head People ATCs (again!)

More stamp head people ATCs. I do love making these but I think I'm a bit of a one trick pony when it comes to them. You know, take a magazine image, stick a stamp on, a bit of pen, a bit of washi tape, and bob's your aunty's brother. I don't have many people stamps though and my drawing skills aren't up to bodies. Just had a thought though - the standard queen's head type stamps may work with my Stampotiques as they are not too big. Off for a play - hopefully I can get some more done in a different style.

Thanks for looking.

Freaky People Tags

I am in love with doing weird freaky people at the moment (see my stamp head ATCs) so I have also made some freaky tags. No postage stamps this time, just cut up magazine images. I went through my embarrassingly large stack of fashion mags and cut out bodies, legs and heads and then mixed and matched them. Stuck them on to inky painty tags and roughly (it is supposed to be rough - honest)  outlined them. I'm quite pleased with how most of them came out, although some are not freaky enough for my liking! They have names because they are being sent with the junk journal swap I am running over on UKScrappers.

I still have some tags left over so I may just make some more for me.

Thanks for looking and enjoy the day.

Stamp Heads/Postage Stamp People ATCs (almost)

Strictly speaking, not ATCs at all as I used the wrong die. Oh well, so they're a little bigger, but that actually works better for some of the images I think. I have some old stamps kicking around and I thought it would be fun to do something with them. I took my stamps with heads on and placed them on images cut from fashion mags. I tried to match them as much as possible for size, colour, position etc. You'll see what I mean. I poscaed (is that a verb? it is now!) over the bits of the images that didn't fit in and voila! Stamp head people.

I thought these might make a good swap over on UKScrappers - off to do a write up.

Thanks for looking.
