Time for a giveaway!

Our January kit sneak peek will be posted next week.  However, I’m going to give you a tiny peek today, with this announcement: the January kit will feature a set of Bombshell Stamps!


We’ve had our eye on Bombshell for a while, with their pin-up girls and tattoo-style stamps – even temporary tattoo ink if you like to wear your art (we do!).

Which brings me to this week’s giveaway:

p1010918Two prizes this time!

First up: Bombshell alpha stamps – these are unmounted red rubber stamps with a tattoo-shop feel to them.

Second: a unique find from our stash – FORTUNE-TELLING MERMAID!

You know those fortune-telling fish?  You lay the thin layer of plastic in your hand, and what the fish does tells your fortune?  Like, it might curl up or lay flat or whatever… well, this is a lewd version of the same thing.  The mermaid tells you how she likes it.  From her gentlemen callers.  Quite the piece of kitsch, I tell you.


Want to win?  Here’s what you do:

For ONE entry, leave a comment below.  That’s all.  Simple, huh?

For TWO entries, leave a comment below and indicate a link where you’ve mentioned this drawing – make sure to link back to us and use our name (Gauche Alchemy) to get your second entry!  We’ll do the drawing on Saturday, 1/3.

Make sure you come back for the January kit sneak peek next Monday!  I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised at what we’ve got in store!

  1. These stamps look really cool, thanks for highlighting them!

  2. That fortune telling mermaid is a gas. I have been seeing a lot of projects using the Bombshell Stamps. Love the tattoo look of them.

  3. I’m a long-lost fortune-telling mermaid, myself. Thank you for leading me back to my people!

    I love the new stuff, galz.

  4. However do you find the time to do all this with the wee one?

  5. katherynei –
    Wow, that’s the question of the day! 🙂 Actually, it’s a balancing act I haven’t mastered yet (see my latest entry on my personal blog: http://medgeek.livejournal.com ), but having her happily at daycare helps a lot. I work my “day job” in the mornings most days (Friday is my full day there), and then I treat Gauche Alchemy – rightly! – as my other “day job” until about 5 or 5:30 when I go pick up the girl. My stepdaughter spend a ton of time with her mom, who has thankfully been very reliable about getting her to and from school even though she lives with us. I wish I could say I take good care of myself as well, but I get far too little regular and nutritious food and exercise… I’m working on it! Oh, also my daughter goes to be around 7 p.m. – that helps a LOT! I have to squeeze a lot of quality time into a few hours with her (and the rest of the family). Sometimes I do that very well; sometimes I suck at it. Learning as I go…

  6. Hey you manage to keep some tiny human beings alive AND find super-cool things to keep the childless amongst us out of mischief???!!!! The world needs more like you – don’t be so hard on yourself! 😀 Totally love those stamps – thanks for pointing them out.
