More file folder play



Are you tired of seeing these file folders?  Today I stamped a few backgrounds using these stamps.  I won't bore you with photos, because it's still all background fodder and I have a MESS I have to clean that will consume a good part of my crafting time.  This is solvent ink that doesn't wash off with soap and water, but I can get the ink off the rubber using elbow grease along with lots of Isoprophyl alcohol and paper towels.

This is day 21 of
AEDM and I stamped a few images that blend into or compliment the file folder backgrounds I originally put on hold because they were so time consuming.

Love those stamps!! I just bought a new staz-on pad myself. Works great for art journalling.

Love me some beautiful stamps. I've used them in my art journals and even in my collage art…a LOT! I have drawers of them….sigh…=)

see you there! said...

Great ink but as you say hard to remove from the stamp itself. I need to get out some of my stamps and make some backgrounds too.

Nice selection of stamps. We won't tire of the folders it's too darn intriguing...what is she doing now?! :) why work so hard to clean the stamps? I just wipe them off with a damp cloth and pat dry. The ink stain doesn't impede future stamping. Still would love to see the background stamping, please. Hugs

for someone who claims she's "not much of a stamper" you have a nice selection of designs there! it's intriguing to see how many techniques go into mixed media and I am enjoying your journey. Not tired of file folders at all! =)

I really like the variety of stamps that you used. Will look forward to seeing the final result of the file folders being stamped and turned into books.
