A Stamp a Day...

Keeps the doctor away! My aim this week (not sure if I will keep it up!) is to use a different stamp everyday on a recycled piece. Care to join me?
 Today I have used a label from a piece of clothing bought at Primark, one of the UK's cheaper clothes stores. I love Primark, and often go in there just for the jewellery which is so cheap, you can cut it up and use it for ART! This was the label before I put Terra on it.


While the Terra was still wet, I wet one of Mr Holtz's stamps and stamped right into it. I did that a couple of times and then  allowed it to dry naturally, and then rubbed Precious Metal gold all over it, followed by a blue Perfect Pearl, which I spritzed with water to set.




Think this will adorn a Christmas Present or even a blog candy.
So go on show me your stamp a day, and let's see if we can get a week of stamping with a different stamp on a recycled something? Just post on here if you have made anything , and you never know I may even give candy away...lol
Happy Stamping!

I clearly need some of this Terra stuff. I keep seeing it on UK blogs and now I want it!

This is a beautiful tag. I'm not too proud to beg: please can I have it? Please? Please?

Love everything about this tag Jennie. Need to get my mucky little hands on some terra asap! Am going to play the stamp/recycle game too. Check out the George from Asda tags - they are fabulously thick and I've been an avid collector for years!

Terra is one of my favorite things at the moment, so much you can do with it. I am using it on flower pots today.In fact anything that stays still long enough gets terra on it! Love the tag , good idea. x
