In The Post...

..just in time for Christmas..Faux postage using stamps from Crafty Individuals. In the past I've made faux postage stamps by  using grid paper from the internet ( you can find some free downloads here) and making a mask, sponging ink  through onto the squares and then stamping through the masked aperture....very messy and so easy to spoil the whole sheet with one mistake...and  I end up with ink everywhere..


So much easier to stamp the whole image onto patterned paper, cut out a rectangle and glue onto the printed grid....no mess!

and takes much less time.
