Recap July - Lots of Inspiration!

Hello, you wonderful FFF's - Friends, Fans & Followers! ♥ It's Bibi here today, and as usual at the end of the month, I'm sharing a selection of the pretties made with stamps from my company, Rubber Dance . Some of these pretties have been posted here on the blog in July, some were posted on the DT's own blogs, and a few on other places in blogland .... This time I will give you the link to the Rubber Dance DT members and our July Guest Designer (pages open in a new window) so you can go to their blogs and become a follower there, too, if you like. They post a lot of pretties that are not for Rubber Dance as well, and I bet you'll want to see what they are up to!

Bubble Backgrounds by Bibi

Hi everyone! It's Bibi the Boss here (owner of Rubber Dance).

My Altered Book goes Rubber Dance

Hello, how nice to see you here at Rubber Dance art stamps! My name is Gabriele from Art-a-tag and I am a mixed media artist from Germany. Today I want to show you how I use the wonderful Rubber Dance stamps in my projects, like an altered book. I very much like this one, because it has many vintage photographs, which really inspire me. The following video shows a walkthrough to give you an impression of the project. This is my first video, so please be kind with me and forgive the stuttering and "hms" and "ehs" and my searching for words. But I hope you will have some fun with it.

The following photos show clips of some stamped areas. Mostly I used permanent ink, some are done with acrylic paint. If you need a crisp image, you should stamp on paper and collage the image, like I did
