Oh I do so love getting new stamps to play with.....especially when they are as gorgeous as these Klimt style stamps which Sue Law has designed for TandaStamps
Of course I had to have a play and here is the card I made with one image from Set 1 and a border from the other set.
The background is just a piece of plain smooth card which I have dabbed with Colourbox Fluid Chalk Inks. The image is stamped in Stazon-Jet Black straight onto the background and I have added colour using pencils and Gamsol. Highlighting has been done with a white gel pen.
I masked off the image and stamped the border to look as if it was behind the main image.
After removing that mask I masked around the image and dabbed with Versamark, added clear embossing powder and heated.
Finished off with a thin black pen border and some brads then layered on to a black mat then a cream card.

Two very inspiring stamp sets which I will be playing with a lot more methinks.



  1. TOTALLY STUNNING Sheila - I really love this!
    I will wander off and ave a nosey at the stamps as I am a HUGE Gustav Klimt fan!

  6. Gorgeous stamps - and you've done such a great job of using them. Also made me think of Charles Rennie MacIntosh.

  7. You have given so much punch to this stamped image! Beautiful.

  8. Hi Sheila, I'm so glad that you like my Klimt inspired stamps and I love what you have done with them....look forward to seeing more on your blog and on the Tanda forum.....
    hi smilynstef...the stamps are sold by Tanda and I believe that they will ship to the US, just check out the web site.....
    hi dollymixtures, funny you should say that....I am a fan of art nouveau and the last stampsets I designed for Tanda were two MacIntosh inspired sets.
