HDH092 - Pleasure and Pain

Haunted Design House - Pleasure and Pain

This week at Haunted Design House you are to incorporate something you love with something you hate.  Well for me this one was easy.  I LOVE rubber stamping but I HATE rubber stamping.  I am just no darn good at it no matter how I try.  Everybody tells me little hints and tips and they never work.  You will see in this pick there are bits I have had to go over with pen cos I stamped it like ten times and didn't get one decent image.



On this I used a canvas for the backing some coodinations for the first card then a little stack for the image being stamped on.  I coloured the stamp with tim holtz distress reinker weathered wood I think.  I adorned this with Creepy Glowbugg's fabulous skulls and brains and some ribbon she sent me a while back and bob's your uncle.

This looks great Andrea, and I'm probably the worst rubber stamper in the world. I love the images and love the way other people can work with them, but mine seriously never come out right. I used to waste sheets and sheets of cardstock just trying to get one image that could be used, usually to no avail :P

You are such a hoot, Andrea, but I hear ya! I Can't get the hang of it for the life of me. That's why I used crap paper because I go through REAMS! This looks super though, hon! Love the image (Gee, I think I may have some of those somewhere) and the skulls and bwains are FAB! xxD
