Anyway, the aforementioned challenge at Stampotique has been chosen by the lovely Arwen and she wants us to get our mean heads on and stamp a background with inexpensive household materials. Now I'm from Yorkshire and we have somewhat of an (undeserved) reputation for being - now what's that phrase regarding a ducks bottom (you know the one, and wouldn't it make a good stamp) so here's my stamping on a budget.
I have to take lots of photographs 'cos I like to be a couple of challenges in advance and I forget what I've done lol.
DecoArt Multi Surface Satin paint applied with an old AA card.
Black gesso and the packaging.
Painted bubble wrap
I was surprised at how well the heat mat stamped :-)
They were VERY bright so I gave them a sanding to bring it down a little
Then I added some text with Pan Pastels. I've used
Romantic Text and
Text Block 3
As the backgrounds are quite busy, I've kept the stamping
very simple and used white embossing on black card.
Hold On Tight
Barcode Text 2
So please dig out your household goodies and join in with our challenge.
