Default My play today - Faux Postage

Hi possums,
Well I had a great playday today, I have found Faux Postage. I constructed faux postage sheets in Word on the computer, printed them out and here are the results. After I printed them, I then made a mask out of acetate so I could lay that over my faux postage sheet and stipple the backgrounds with a bristle brush and inks, then stamped the image over the tops. Great fun!! I decided to get a bit more adventurous on the second one and thoroughly enjoyed doing them. Hope you are all well...it is starting to get very cold over here and it is blowing a gale here tonight.Winter is on it's way

Your faux postage samples are terrific! FYI, if you have a tracing wheel (for sewing) you can make holes and then tear images apart and they then have that individual stamp look to them. Great for cards!

Sure wish come you and I could do a trade come July and August, some of your cold for some of our heat. Then we'd both have the perfect sit outside and color weather.

Love them, especially the beach one 'cause I love the theme and the colors.

We are supposed to hit 80 today but that won't last long since we are usually in the 50s this time of year. Hoping your winter isn't as abnormal as ours was this year.

Wow Deb you are rocking on those Faux Stamps! I love the sets both of them!
We also have had some warmer days then it went and rained and got down right cold last night. Keep the hot tea close to you and mittens and keep stampin!
( I stamp in our garage and am no stranger to stamping on the colder side of most crafters...lol)

They're great... very imaginative... I went through a big artistamp phase 15 years ago or so... one of the conventions had an artistamp convention with it and the stamps people like Anna Banana and others made were incredible... couldn't tell them from real postage stamps... I bought some commemorating an alien family's visit to the earth. We used to sell them in our booth as well on commission from various artists. Did many swaps as well with artistamps... John Held Jr. used to perforate them for free for you... not sure if he still does that or not. We have many faux postage rubber stamps in our line...

Thankyou all for your lovely comments. I just love the faux postage stamp of yours Stampo...I tried to find it on your site but to no avail although that doesn't mean anything lol. If you still have one could you please point me in the right direction.
Our weather is still pretty crappy. The winds haven't let up and we have been getting rain, that, I am happy for, we need it so badly. I did however find something amazing today. I have a gilder rose growing outside in the garden and it doesn't normally get flowers until about late October early November before it gets it's new leaves and there today is a cluster of flowers before this years leaves have even fallen off. It has missed a whole cycle.My plants don't know what time of year it is anymore (bit like me lol)I am hoping to get some more playing in tomorrow. Spent all day today on the computer...bought more stamps hehehe so I can't wait till they arrive. I usually get them in about a week from the states...takes less time than from the other side of Aus.
Have a great day everyone...
