Scenic Magnets

Well here are my masterpieces but the photos are so horrible I could scream. These magnets are images stamped onto stampboard and then colored and a magnet attached on the back.

The three on this image above, are 2 inch square stampboards. I used H2Os to paint them and this may look fantastic but it photos like #**#**.

The next group of magnets are 2.5 inch diameter circles, also on stampboard. All these are sections of Thomas Kincade stamps and again done in H2Os.

The final group are done on 2 inch square or 2 inch diameter circle stampboard. The rose image is from a stamp from Rubber Stampede.I have made more copies of each one of these. I made them for the school craft fair. I think that they would be affordable gifts for students to buy parents or as teacher gifts. If they don`t sell, guess what people will be getting attached to their gifts?

I love stamping and painting on stampboard. I bought mine at the Carousel Rubber Stamp store in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia in Canada. I have not seen them anywhere else. They are not expensive and wonderful to work with.

Well off to get lunch ready so talk

Ouuuu! What a great way to use the Thomas Kincade stamps. I clicked on the photo so I could see them up close and your details are awesome. They're like mini paintings. SO cool! :O)

Wow, Heather, these are gorgeous! Only you could get these this small. How beautiful. I am thinking about the magnet thing, but will have to think a little more. These are just lovely!
