A fun request part 2

Hi everyone, hope your week is going well, thanks for dropping in!
A few weeks ago I was asked to create some samples for the new Crafters Companion Artist Collection Textures and Stamps. Each of the designers were given 4 of the 8 texture folders and matching stamps.  Here are some further samples that I created:

A really versatile folder that is fairly neutral, I coloured the background with Distress Sprays and then high lighted with Pebeo Gilding paste.
 A wonderful collection of grungy background stamps, stamped in Sepia Archival.

A brick texture with some more matching stamps. This time stamped in Maroon Archival and over stamped in Coffee.  I absolutely adore the word stamps, they have such cool fonts, and again would be great for journaling too.

 This one uses a pebble texture background, the same stamps used in a slightly different way.

This final one uses a leaf grain texture folder.

You can see my first samples HERE if you did not see them yet. These must be some of the most versatile folders and stamps, - you could literally use them with anything, great for journaling, scrapbooking etc etc. They proved so popular on Create and Crafts that as far as I know the shows for the rest of the week have all been cancelled, but they are still available on the Create and Craft site.

Well, that's it from me for today, thanks for visiting and hope you can find some creative time!

Fabulous samples Astrid. My bundle arrived today and I've had a play tonight with the distressed EF and it's you say it will be very versatile. Carol x

Missed this launch completely maybe because it is Crafters Companion and i tend to not watch too many of their shows, so off to see your first post and see if i can catch up with the collection on their website.

Lovely to see what you have created here Astrid, sorry for lack of commenting recently have been a tad poorly so trying to catch up :-) xxx

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
