Phew. What a relief. It worked.
After a night of my coins weighed down in a stack of stamping blocks, all of the bits stuck.
I’ll explain the different fonts – when I am adding text, I usually print a few versions of the text – different fonts, different sizes, depending on my which one? dilemma – and usually more than one version, so if I mess up the cutting I don’t have to them go back and print again. The leftovers make nice ATC mailing extras. In this case I had printed a couple of extra lines when I printed the text for the fabric ATCs and I had exactly four bits of text in two different fonts. So other than the glue issues, these came together in a flash.
I read someplace that if you are stuck on a choice, more often then not, your first instinct i the one you choose and the one you are happiest with. I tested this figure on these coins more than a month ago and in the end it was the choice I picked. And I am, indeed, happy with it. Finally. Remember I made the piece that became these coins YEARS ago, and now one more UFO crossed off my list.
The little guy is from OM Studio. So many of the stamp images I use are from old, possibly defunct, companies. I have ideas for images from Crazy Bob, Karv’d, Picture Show, Moe Wubba… where are they now, I wonder?
