Last night I stamped many meters of wrapping paper. On the living room floor. You may be able to imagine how much my knees hurt. I'm planning to make some more tonight! It was such fun, but I think I need to come up with some sort of knee pads. After working three months in a women's clothing store last summer I had more muscles in my arms than ever before. That work was so much more than just standing behind the counter. Now I know that there's hardly nothing left of those muscles. Maybe they will come back if I start regular stamping exercises? I think it's worth a try...
I cut my stamp from fun foam (or at least I think it's what you call it in English, although I'm not sure how fun it is) and stamped with acrylic paints mixed with wheat paste. That white looking color is actually metallic champagne, and the magenta and phthalo green paints are slightly metallic, too. Browns are what they are. And the paper is just plain brown wrapping paper bought from the post office.
I've already cut another stamp but I still need to glue it together. And stamp!
