Hello everyone! STAMPtember® continues at Simon Says Stamp with fun things happening every day. We have another stamping challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog this week, namely to stamp on other surfaces than ordinary paper. Lots of options: acetate, chipboard, canvas, wood, metal and so much more.
I couldn't just stop at one non-paper surface, so this will be a long post. I stamped on: acetate, wood, frosted film, fabric, canvas, metal, vellum and photos.
I also love the look of white stamping on acetate, and Stazon Cotton White works really well for that - or try to use white paint.
I have a lot of tags on which I have tried different techniques, this one came from Tim's 12 tags of 2013 July. I stamped it with Archival Inks.
Leftover small photos from layouts often disappear and this one was too cute not to use.
I love this photo of my dad, his friends and their bikes and used it on the gear page, together with a fence, bird, arrow and other bits and pieces, all found in my scrap box.
Even this photo of me was already cut out and in my scrap box (I think it was too small for the layout I was planning to have used it on). I am sitting on some Tattered Floral flowers and a quote ticket, with a white embossed vellum butterfly fluttering by. I used the white stamped acetate as a page and you can peak the metal page behind it.
Another photo that didn't make it onto a layout, taken on one of my favourite bike routes. I combined it with a left over quote from my Dotty ATC Gelli Print Book.
The frosted film page turned into a great surface for leftover lake photos, stamped with a sentiment stamp. The Birds on a Wire were in my scrap box too.
On the canvas page, I used a leftover photobooth photo of my dad, sister and me, together with the second half of a picture wheel, a love die cut and an acetate stamped clock.
All these items were in my scrap box, as was the quote.
Finally, I also used a photo of my grandfather and some embellishments that fit together with him, a vintage camera, hearts and an old postcard.
I hope I gave you some inspiration for surfaces to stamp on and that you will join us this week! As always, Simon Says Stamp gives a $50 gift voucher to one random participant.
Thank you for looking at this long post!!
