I was probably about as skeptical as they come about these stamps. I came from a scrapbooking background. And, although I love stamps and have collected them for quite some time and am pretty new to actually *using* them and I don't consider myself an "advanced" stamper. I was very open from the beginning about the fact that I could never make them look like the photo. But, then I looked at some of the ideas in the actual Thomas Kinkade gallery at Cornish Heritage Farms. When I saw what some of the "experienced" stampers had done it gave me a little more confidence. I realized that I didn't have to color them to get a really pretty card. It takes a bit of playing to see what ink/paper combo you like best but after you try it out a bit, it is actually a lot of fun. I did one not too long ago in red/green Christmas looking colors. It's here in the gallery. I probably never would have liked these stamps if I hadn't tried them for myself. Really, they are something that can be used by pretty much any stamper, new or experienced...you just have to find what technique works best for you personally. I'd say just try them out and play around a bit with different techniques other than coloring and see what you think before you get rid of them.

You can buy them at www.cornishheritagefarms.com. They have several to choose from and also little sentiments to go with them. They will be getting even more designed before too long too.

Awesome cards ladies! Can't wait to get these stamps!

I finally purchased a TK stamp and inked it yesterday. I really love the detail of the images.

Here was my first attempt:

http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...0&ppuser=44388

It probably only took about 10 minutes to color this portion of the Foxglove Cottage image. So much fun. And I think because the image is so detailed, it's open for experimentation. You can layer colors without having to over-think shadowing.

Thanks!

I really have found these stamps easy to use. Here's one I just did yesterday using Adirondacks Stained Glass ink pad.

http://forums.cornishheritagefarms.c...2/limit/recent

This picture doesn't even do it justice! IRL it's gorgeous. So much detail shows up. I used a really smooth white paper (not glossy). I don't remember the maker but it's artist grade, used for doing marker illustrations.

I have several TK stamps, and found that they are easiest to colour with Prismascolour pencils- I don't need to learn a special technique, just colour like we used to at school! It does take half an hour to 45 minutes to colour, but I find it really relaxing to do it.
Also, try the Pearly Window technique if you have Pearl Ex, http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...arlywindow.php
It's also really easy, just stamp with black Stazon on to transparency, spray with spray adhesive or run thru the Xyron, then blob PE on the sticky part. You can't go wrong with this, and it's an awesome result!
Also, as has been said, the monochrome look is also lovely. I like Brilliance Pearlscence ink in Crimson and Sky Blue the best. There are some examples in my gallery.

I've viewed a few of the links shown in previous posts and prefer the mono technique. You could also do it mono and just do a slight bit of highlight. Or.......do a color wash on the paper and stamp in the mono. I think the right color paper and a mono look would be the best way to go.
