My Creative Classroom - Terriffic Techniques Wk 3

The subject for the third week of techniques was Stampbord - I worked with the domino sized pieces I had so adapted the exercises to suit.

The first example can be used to make a Christmas Badge (in which case it needs a pin attaching to the back) or as a sentiment on a card or tag. I did not have a sufficient number of tiny gems for the berries so improvised by using a combination of Glossy Accents & Stickles Glitter Glue. The edges were sanded & then the sides coloured with a Sakura Stardust Pen (the dimension of the berries & sparkle of the sides becomes more apparent by clicking the photo to enlarge).

Stamp: Hobby Art
Inks: Distress Inks (Chipped Sapphire, Tumbled Glass), Memento (Tuxedo Black)
Colouring: Copics, Stickles Glitter Glue (Xmas Red), Sakura Stardust Pen

With the second example I have used the scratcing tool to etch away the areas inside the wings of the stamped image. This time I went round the edges & the sides with a Sakura Stardust Pen.

Stamp: Elusive Images
Inks: Distress Inks (Crushed Olive, Forest Moss, Peeled Paint), Memento (Tuxedo Black)

These are really good Paula - I particularly like the Merry Christmas one!! The wings look really nice scrapped out like that - must try this technique soon.

Hmmm, I'm fascinated by all the different techniques you are working on in Glenda's classes, I think I need to investigate further!!
Great creations and brilliant etching of the fairy's wings.
