I've been meaning to post on my blog, but time has run away with me as usual!
Last weeks LLL show id picked some cool stamps and stencils to work with the indigo blu - together with stampbord. If you haven't tried stampbord yet, give it a go. It's a cool product. It has a lovely smooth surface, beautiful for stamping on - but there's so many possibilities.
I wanted to run through a simple wall hanging for you.
I started with 3 pieces of the stampbord, distress inks and a pocky tool. I put holes in the stampbord with the tool, but a crop a dile works really well
The ink blends easily. Now, using a permanent ink pad, stamp the floral stamp on two of your bords, I wanted the image to sit at the top of one bord, and the bottom of the next
I added some extra texture with a stencil and the distress ink, and popped them into position so I can see how they will sit when complete
I then stamped the sentiment image on the 3rd bord
I wanted the middle section to have a glazed finish, so covered the whole piece with versamark and clear UTEE.
Glue them together, making sure the bord with the holes is at the top. I used cosmic shimmer glue to stick them. To finish I added white highlights with the scraper tool, by simply scratching off the ink and taking it back to the white of the bord.
I then added a wire handle to hang my piece
Okay, let's get cracking on today's show 😀
