Just popping in for a fun share today. I love all kinds of stamps, but I find that border stamps are generally the unsung hero amongst all stamps.
Here is an example where I used-Penny Black (Twirls)
It is easy to stamp these two cling stamps in one solid color and make borders...that's what I would do when first seeing this type of stamps. BUT I decided to do something a little different.
Since water-coloring is still so trendy/popular and easy to do, I tried coloring around the images.
1. Stamp the borders all over the background and clear emboss the images
2. Apply Distress Ink with water and color-brush the images (the main reason is to create a coloful background, so you do not need to be an expert in coloring)
3. Stamp sentiment ( My Favorite from Hero Arts) on pattern paper (My Mind's Eyes) and add strings and sequins.
4. Use pop dots for the dimensions
Please stop by tomorrow as I have a guest design post over Penny Black :)
Thanks for stopping by!
