Contributor Spotlight; Karen Dunbrook
How/when did you begin stamping? I am not really sure when I first started stamping but I did get into it more seriously around 2007. I play along in challenges and I started a blog this past February. I’ve always loved crafts as a child and stamping was one of a favourites at craft times.
What is your favorite technique/style? I have to say that my favourite style is CAS; clean and simple. I love to sponge, mask and especially watercolour with markers onto my stamps. I do love many other styles as well but always seem to come back to CAS.
Which Penny Black product are you most drawn to? There are so many and there is such a wonderful variety for any style of creating. I especially love the florals.
What do you do when you’re in a stamping ‘slump’? When I hit a slump or lose my ‘mojo’, I head to Pinterest or blogland. So much inspiration here too, from the talented Designers.
How would you describe your craft space in three words? Although my space is a little hole in the wall it is….MY HAPPY PLACE!
What would be your advice to beginner stampers? My advice would be to start simple using good quality ink and paper. I love using black Memento ink. Have fun with it and don’t be afraid to make a mistake.
Do you have any questions for our readers? I would love to know what style of card you enjoy creating.
