Evening all! Ahhh I got a poorly sick boy, he's being brave though. Seems to have a bit of a temperature and the sniffles so he'll be off tomorrow. Never mind we can all nuggle down in bed and watch Rio he got for his birthday on Tuesday :)
I have another of the LETRASET stamping packs to share with you tonight, the other one you will find the post here This one is Stamp Pack 2, specially designed for newer crafters wishing to have a try of the letraset products. It contains another exclusive stamp designed by Gillian Roberts and this one is the Easter kit. Inside you get the stamp which is pretty large (nearly A6) 3 promarkers; Pastel yellow, Lime Green and Cool Aqua, a hints and tips sheet and 6 sheets of A6 card which is THE most delicious card I've ever coloured on - hurry up and bring it out on A4 Letraset, we NEEEEED it!!
I did find the stamp a bit tricky to get a clear impression with it being so large, seemed to miss a little in the middle whereas the stamp in set 1 is the same size and didnt so you may need a mouse mat or some cushioning underneath and practice on some scrap card first.
The colours in the set are lovely eastery spring ones and to compliment the 3 in the pack I also used the limited edition spring set alongside them too. I added some of the lime green on the grassy bit and coloured her jeans in the cool aqua and the chicks on her hat are the pastel yellow. There are a couple of lines on her top and I kept just seeing a love heart shape there so I added that :)
As its quite a large stamp with quite a lot of detail then again I don't feel like you need to do anything fancy with it, just a matt and some gems. I added 2 peel off bunnies and coloured them in also and a pearl bow on the hat.
These have just been released and will retail at RRP £8.99 which is pretty good value for the 3 pens, a stamp and delicious card so if you've or a friend have been thinking of trying promarkers or were wanting to get into stamping then check these out at http://www.letraset.com/ and various Letraset stockists.
