Oak House Studio meets Candy Box Crafts

I was asked a few weeks ago if I would consider contributing a ‘little something’ TAKE 5. I must admit I’ve never done a blog post at all so this is all new to me.

Lynnda told me this month topic was 3D so just my sort of thing!
I decided I wanted to try something with our ‘Boxx’ as the base for this project.

I set to and cut 5 pieces of 300gsm white card for the outside panels of the Boxx. Each piece was cut 6mm smaller than the panel to allow for a border all the way around which would later be coated with Prima Copper Crackle Paste.

Having laid out the 5 pieces of card in front of me I liberally sprayed all the pieces with PURE  
Oak House Studio Peacock Green Watercolour Ink, followed by a splash here and there of Bottled Sunshine and Waterfall. I let the colours ‘mingle’ for a few moments before running a kitchen roll across the pieces of card to soak up the excess Ink. A flick of water to give some texture was all that was needed for now.

I’m quite random in what I do so armed with some ‘background’ stamps I added some more texture in the form of small flowers and groups of dots using one of the triple ink pads, which complimented the backgrounds perfectly. I then embossed the large Daisy flower in white, trying to match the flower up as it moved across the panels. The centre of the Daisy was embossed in copper using the smaller Daisy stamp and then to finish each panel a little silver frantage here and there.

Before adhering the decorated panels to the Boxx I had already masked the area off where the panels were to go and spread some Prima Copper Crackle Paste over the exposed edges which I think gives a simple yet nice effect.

Hope you like my first ever blog post.

Introducing The New Texture Stamp Set

Hi all
I am up on the Oak House Studio Blog with a new layout and I have some new texture stamps to show you. These are the larger versions of the texture stamps that come with the Double Daisy set but now are a good size for mixed media projects.

I started my page off with some stenciling around the layout using texture paste mixed with Peacock  Pure Colour Chemistry Ink. I used the Ledger Sheet stencil mask by The Crafters Workshop and added the texture randomly around the page. I then Flicked Sapphire Acrylic Ink

                            I added some lace trims to my page and dotted around a few pearls

I cut up a couple of sheets of Gypsy gypsy paper pad and cut out the postcards. I distressed the edges and added stenciling on them before layering them up.

I took the texture stamps and stamped them around the page and over the stenciling. I used Vintage Sepia and Cobalt Blue Colour Chemistry Ink Pads.

I added more of the texture past around the scrabble tiles to distress them
