Oak House Studio - You Colour My World


Another sneak preview of some of the stamps and inks which will be on the Oak House Studio TV show tomorrow Wednesday 21st October.  Hochanda craft and hobby TV chanel (SKY 663 - FREESAT 817 - FREEVIW 39).   There are three shows at 11am, 2pm and 6pm. 


Oak House Studio New colour Pure Colour Chemistry inks sprayed onto old book pages, New Double Daisy stamp and a sentiment stamp, embellished with die cut shapes.

Below are two ATCs and a tag the "you colour my world" sentiment stamp and the new double daisy stamp set were used for these.  The daisies were stamped with pigment ink pads including the new triple ink pads available in the shop, and the new colours available on the TV show.


The daisy stamp was stamped onto a textured card tag to give a random open stamped image, I masked the daisies to create the layers.  The ATC's were stamped onto plain card giving a smoother image using masking again.

Hi everyone, here is a sneak preview of somethings I have been making for the Oak House Studio Design Team for a TV show which will be aired on Wednesday 21st October over on the Hochanda craft and hobby TV chanel (SKY 663 - FREESAT 817 - FREEVIW 39).   There are three shows at 11am, 2pm and 6pm.  Lynnda will be showcasing some new stamps and fabulous inks, there will be demos by Lynnda and samples from the design team members.  So make a note of the date and tune into the show, or record it so you can watch it later, there is something for everyone from card making to art journaling and jewellery making.

 Traditional Christmas card using Oak House Studio inks and stamps on papermilldirect white linen card.

I have been playing with the new triple ink pads and the new Pure Colour Chemistry ink. The colours are gorgeous and the Pure Colour Chemistry inks can be used as they are or watered down to a lighter colour, or mixed to make your own colours.

The new stamp sets are lovely too, a new set of sentiment stamps, stamps designed for people who stamp into clay and make jewellery, these are great for card making and art journaling too, and some old favourites revamped into sets with new elements.  There will be something for everyone so do pop over and watch the shows on November 21st.
