New Firework Stamps for the borders and frames challenge

A lovely project from Doreen using the new Firework stamps and the Block frame that we have recently released at Oak House Studio.



List of ingredients :

1 piece of black glossy card
1 piece of Acetate
Versamark ink pad
Selection of mica powders
Colour Chemistry Acrylic Inks, Citrine, Malachite and Silver
Double sided foam tape
Black Fine Line Marker Pen
and Fine Line White Paint Marker

Firstly stamp the frame onto the Acetate and leave to dry.
Next take the black glossy card stamp fireworks randomly using the versamark.
Using a dry paint brush take the mica powders and lift a little of the colours you have selected and tap a little of each colour in no particular order over the stamped  images. Then using a very soft brush dust the colours over the images to colour the fireworks. Tap off the excess powder and buff with a soft tissue. 

Returning to the frame I used a white fine line marker to colour the frame and leave to dry completely once again, when done apply the double sided foam tape and cut of the excess acetate from the frame. Choose an area of the firework artwork that you are happy works in the frame and stick the frame to it. Cut the excess black card off so it is not showing outside the frame.
Take a card of your choice and stamp with Archival ink (black) Then write in squares Remember, Remember the fifth of November.
Next take the Acrylic Inks and shake the silver well and put a little onto a white tile, then a little citrine add some of the silver and colour the empty squares. Then I added a little Malachite to the citrine and silver to make a very pale shade of green and then graduated the colour all around the card using the 3 inks. 

If you go over the black of the frame don't worry as when you go over the letters again in the black fine line marker you can colour it back in. 

Mount the frame onto a piece of card from your craft stash and stick to card.


Thank you for looking, I hope you are feeling inspired and will come and join us in the challenge on Facebook.

Love Doreen

Lovely use of the Block Frame stamp - those Fireworks look great through the window and I bet they look even better in real life. Nice idea to write in the squares too!
