I was kindly asked if I would like to make a couple of projects with this amazing Laughing Skull stamp from Rosie McStone Studio. This is the first of what will hopefully be a larger range of products from a UK based designer. I love to support small businesses, and as a personal friend, I was happy to do what I could to promote the brand.
The stamp comes in two sizes, pre-cut and mounted ready to use:
9.5cm x 5.75cm @ £5.99 post free (UK)
7cm x 4.25cm @ £4.50 post free (UK)
Message via the Rosie McStone Studio page to arrange purchase. I am sure that international postage could be arranged – just ask Rosie!!
After a short spell in the craft room, this is what I came up with (there will be more to follow!!)
I used Distress Inks to create my background and a batty stencil. The skull was bleached out with water before adding crackle glaze. Once this was dry, black Distress Ink highlights the crackle effect.
My second project is a notebook:
The skull was gently inked with Distress Ink around the edge before being shaped and glazed with DecoArt Triple Thick Varnish. The backdrop is a cool Sizzix embossing folder (an oldie from my stash) highlighted with gilding wax.
I love this stamp – the quality and price are great, and the detail is great. Can’t wait to see what comes next from Rosie McStone Studio!!
