Hello! The challenge theme this week as Simon Says Stamp and Show is 'the stamp I love but don't use'. Time to ink up those uninked stamps! I love rubber stamps, and most of my stamps have seen ink, but there were still quite a few that wanted some attention, especially newer stamps.
The Birds on a Wire were die cut from manila cardstock and inked and a sentiment was stamped on a Tattered Banner.
For the door and roof, I covered glossy cardstock with foil tape and painted it with Juniper paint. Then the house was stamped on top with Stazon ink. When dry, I distressed them further with a needle tool. The flower on the house is a part of the Caddy Bag die.
On this house you can see the effect of stamping with black ink over the Vintage Photo embossing better. It gives a great distressed and layered look.
Tim Holtz number stamp. Another sentiment was stamped on a tattered banner and I also added a little keyhole.
Hearts Set die.
Ink up those stamps this week and show us your projects. As always, our sponsor Simon Says Stamp gives a $50 gift voucher to one random participant (so you can get some new stamps!).
Thank you for stopping by!
