These stamps are fab and can be used for so many things and luckily I got playing before I was told to be good and rest my hand for at least 3 weeks, well day one done..itching to get inky already..may give it a one handed go!?
Anyway here is my make this week:
I started with some beer mats which I painted , then added furniture restorers crackle medium and a layer of calico emulsion. When dry I edged with vintage photo distress ink and stamped some script from timeless journey set in vintage photo and also added some bubble wrap stamp using pebble paint dabber.
Then is set about decorating....
the first piece, had the word home cut out and inked, this was from the word play die but creative expressions have a fab grungeboard letters in sets here.
For the middle section:
I used the fab house set and stamped the house in coffee archival, then I inked and used a waterbrush using distress inks. I added glossy accents to the centre piece, and also added some great arts parts wings, coloured with vintage photo distress stain.
now for the last section:
I used a technique from one of tim's tags last year found here, I used a grungeboard heart from this set and covered with wonder tape sheet..( this is sticky on both sides but will also cope with being heated..
I then stamped out the house in archival and coloured the text pieces with vintage photo distress and snipped up into small pieces which I added to the heart shape. when happy I added a mix of walnut stain, tea dye and vintage photo distress embossing powders to it and heated. then added glossy accents to the pieces.
to complete I added mini stamped words and some rusty wire..of course!
I added rusty wire to the top and used idea-ology lace chain to connect the mats together..
These were blank beer mats , but you could use any thing really..
I love how you can use pieces of the stamps in different ways, the two pieces I have done have been browns but will be back next week with something more colourful, using these stamps.
thanks for stopping by............have a fun and inky day!
