View Full Version : Shack Challenge - Gift entry

12-04-2006, 02:25 PM
Thank you for all the comments you've made on my entry. This was a lot of fun to do. I did learn a few things while making this:

1) Large stamps are warped
2) My DH can stamp large stamps better than I can (he says it's because he has larger hands). He got an even coverage, I seem to get a blank spot in the middle.
3) versafine ink will not become permanent even after baking.
4) my ds loves it when all my inks are out, because then he can pull his stamps out also
5) the birds are really small (or maybe my eyes are getting older)
6) all my gorgeous chalking faded when baked
7) I do not have a calibrated straight eye. My border around the trivet was crooked when I eyeballed it and had to go back and mask it to get that line.
8) If you do good work, your dh will want more of them for gifts!
