So this year I have decided to challenge myself to make a set of cards, scrapbook page or journal layout using each of my stamp sets as I know I have some I rarely use!
This week I am using the Oh So Lovely stamps and on Sunday I showcased them for a very clean and simple set of cards. I did wonder as they are perfect for that style if I could use them for another style too… well I turned to a page in my dylusions journal and tried them out…
The page had some wipe marks from another project. I have no idea what stencil I had used but could clearly see a frame taking shape.
I wiped some leftover Nougat fresco paint over the square to act as the base for the page. Then took a stencil and added the pale green splodges of paint for two corners.
Then I found a framer stencil and placed that over the top and used some more fresco paint to part of this to add some definition and some brighter colour.
Then I added the flowers from the stamp set with only some partial stamping and using paint to stamp. I also stamped in the nougat over the bottom corner of the frame the hessian stamp.
I brushed some Wisteria Wonder ink in the right hand corner and some island Indigo ink in the left hand top corner. Then I stamped the berry image in black archival and coloured the image in lightly with ink and water.
Then used a piece of paper to add a line of shadow to the bottom right of the frame and doodled a frame for the Art with pen and then a brush and Indian ink.
I chose the quote that worked for me at that moment looking at the image and then painted it with my brush and ink diamond ink.
A simple and quick page and yes I can make something with these stamps that isn’t clean and simple.
I knew it anyway though… These stamps are for keeps! Love them too much.
