art for men...

continuing on with more ...

NEW STAMPS!

this set is titled...
art for men...

starting with "the boy" on the left...
with his hand out, he can hold ANYTHING...
a fish...an umbrella...a sign...just a word or number...

I am IN LOVE with "the guy with the cane"...
he fits in with vintage & steampunk...
LOVE his boots...
he is the focal point of a very fun project that I'll show you later...

"the fish" are fun to stamp with archival ink,
then over-stamp using Perfect Pearls Mist...
that places the shimmer just where you would expect to see it on a real fish...

the "mini mustache" is so fun & fits several faces that are coming soon...
as well as this face & this face too...

it also works as a...??? yikes...
that's coming soon too...

and "the flourish" on the bottom works well in collages...
since it's a solid image, it's fun to KISS it with other stamps to totally change the look...

*** and here's the best part***
the top 5 images all have coordinating art parts...


this new art parts set is called...
OUTDOOR ART...

here's what the actual package looks like...
so you can see what's included...

there are 2 umbrellas...
2 different sizes,
which can be inked then stamped with any background stamp...
and if you look @ the art...
once again I used wild honey distress stain and stamped with vermillion archival...
can you say...addicted...

I also used the distress stains once again over tim's kraft resist paper...
addicted...

the 2 fish are sized to fit the stamps above...

the fence = fun...
LOVE the bird in black or any ink color...he looks good stamped with a background too...
and the lamp post...
this looks so cool when used with my residences art parts...
with outdoor scenes...
or in a collage...
or with the guy with the cane shown above...

as you know I totally love flowers...

but let me tell you that I have had fun playing with these guys...

talk to me...

gotta run now...

time for me to...

make art!

Perfect!!!! These are going to be so cool for masculine projects! I think DH was beginning to feel left out. lol All my female friends and family get cool stuff made using Studio 490 stamps and art parts.

I like what I see. The little boy would be cool with a newspaper in his hand. I like the idea of adding the shimmer to the fish. Very clever!
