New Magenta Cling Stamps

This is a new stamp from Magenta, designed by Helene after she returned from a trip to Asia.  An easy way to show colour on dark cardstock is to emboss the image with white embossing powder, heat, and colour with chalks.  This is a card that Bev made.  The stamped layer was white embossed on black and coloured with chalks. She has lightly distressed the edges before she put it to a lavender layer. It was then added to a black gloss card.  This technique works well with fairly solid images.  If you try and use just an outline image, the thin lines really aren't enough to pick up good colour with chalk.

This unmounted stamp sells for $11.95. I presently have a good number in stock.  If you are not able to get to the store, we can ship this item to you in Canada for an additional $2 plus tax.  Please email me at:

Happy Stamping
