Hello, it’s Angela here, I was so thrilled to be asked by Lynnda to contribute to the blog as I do love Oak House Studio products, especially the stamps and Inks. The theme this month is colours – rainbows and there are certainly plenty of gorgeous vibrant colours to choose from in the Colour Chemistry inks range. To challenge myself, I thought I would try Stampbord, I’ve seen it, read about it but never tried it before, so today’s project is my very first play.
I started by adding a colour wash of Paris Pink to the surface of the stampbord, then I used a wet brush to flick and tap French Lavender and Pumpkin inks randomly onto the surface, and dragged lines from some of the splashes using a ‘pokey’ tool.
I stamped a butterfly and heat embossed with the fabulous Silver detail powder. Added extra colour using a paint brush loaded with French lavender ink. Using the Triple Berry Purples inkpad to stamp ‘Dream’ under the butterfly and some random dottiness with a white pen and the stampbord panel was finished.
I used both Peacock Green and Jubilee Blue inks to create a colour wash background panel, flicked with water and then used a paper towel to dab and lift colour in places, adding extra texture by stamping with the little dotty textures stamp. Texture Element stamps were used on 2 corners to ‘frame’ the panel, the Triple Berry Purples inkpad for this and also added ‘Follow Your’ to top corner. I used a white pen again to highlight some of the stamping in the corner elements.
