British Inspiration Stamping with Stains


I had fun working on a Punk Rock Anarchy Sid Vicious kinda tag today. I have such a love for England and all my friends there, none of which are the least bit punk rock, but the Artistic Outpost London themed stamps inspired me today. Since I’ve been doing the Tim Holtz Creative Chemistry 1o1 work shop this week I wanted to try the Stamped Stain technique on something.

With Barn Door and Faded Jeans distress stain I made me background. I stamped with Picket Fence the Regal Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Stamp. I used Artistic Outposts Subway sign, Union Jack, and saying stamps . Then I loaded up with 7 Gypsies tape, Tim’s clips, chains, pins, and on and on. I found ribbon with Keep Calm and a cuppa on it.

I had the heart with skull charm forever. I kept thinking there would be a rocker pic of my youngest son to use it with, but he’s grown out of that stage. lol
