Clear Alphabet Stamps--Love 'em

I was just playing with my new cool clear alphabet stamps and just thought you'd like to see these stamps. I actually did the stamping very fast over an acrylic background with a black stamp pad. For the new year, one of my resolutions is to adventure into new color pallets and possibly sit the Quin gold and greens on the back shelf for a while. I do love these colors and continue to reach for them but for my eye, everything is beginning to look too similar in color. This is a new year's resolution I might be able to keep! Oh, I need to exercise more too but I know already I'll break that one.

Hi Martha,
I like your new stamps and your page is gorgeous as always. I know what you mean about the colors: I am a green, gold, earth tone junkie!! LOL

great stamps!! Thanks for the link, and they are on sale!! :)

I use red and turquoise all the time. Can't seem to get away from it!!

Exercise, yuck!! But I will be doing that today at 3:30. Have you ever heard of T-Tapp?? It is a great program, you can read about it at www.ttapp.com Instead of feeling drained when I am finished I am energized. Now, if I can just stick with it. That's my problem!!!! When I go I love it, it's getting my fat butt there!!!!! grrrrr

Very pretty Martha! I have a couple sets of clear alphabet stamps and love them too. And guess what! I'm finally getting around to working through the calligra-fun workshop! I was so glad to see that the videos were still accessible for those of us who signed up for the first offering. Thank you!

I love your greens and golds, Martha, but now I am looking forward to your new color use! I have art new year's resolutions, too. I do need to use my stamps more, and in more creative ways. I really want more art time. (Your grandson is just a honey!)

Hi Martha, I like your new stamps. Clear is always so much easier to place. Love this piece you've created and the verse. So you want to try new colors, eh? I'd love to see what you'd do with purple. Have a Happy Monday...

I love clear stamps. And we do seem to get stuck into certain color palettes don't we. But how can we help it when we love the colors so much?! LOL

Martha...we won't even go to that "exercise more" thing..ugh! This is beautiful, and I really love all your work and think your color choices are always lovely. I'm sure whatever you do will be beautiful, as you have a great eye for color blends. Hugs, ;)
