WAHOO!

50/50 #27

50/50 (27)
This background paper was made with a blue foam stamp.  I am addicted to making these stamps.  Each one is unique to you as opposed to the commercial stamps.  The blue foam heats up easily with a dryer that is hot enough for shrink wrap or embossing and takes an impression of any three dimensional surface.  You can order the stamps from www.clearsnap.com  I always try to bring some to every workshop I give so everyone can try them out.   With such a strong background, I needed more than just an ink line for the image.  

This guy is grinning because I FINISHED THE 50TH TILE TONIGHT!!  So, Wahoo!  I will still post one at a time, but it feels great to have them done.  I will photograph the last 6 tomorrow outside in natural light, then I will lay them out and configure the best presentation order.  I need to seal each piece with acrylic spray to protect them.  After that, I will create the Blurb book.  Installation is August 18th, 19th and 20th.  Opening reception is August 24th.

Perfection! And this man reminds me of the actor who played Rose's boyfriend on Golden Girls, name of Miles on the show. I'll bet it feels wonderful to have completed what seemed to be a Herculean task. And you did amazing on each and every one.

I went to that site and could not find the blue foam stamps. I saw a set of magic stamps. Is that the same thing? Kay

Thanks, Sherry. It was a great adventure.

Hi Kay,
Yes, the same thing. I recommend not getting the odd shaped ones, just the rectangles.
