Hello there! Or should I say "Happy Christmas" lol ok ok I guess it is a tad early yet :) I love Christmas but it is a hectic time, I hope you're all keeping on top of your prep?
Anyway! Today it's my turn to share with you my projects made with the fantastic new Background stamps, featured on The Craft Channel yesterday and again today, I hope you manage to watch our fab Lesley?
I love these stamps they are so versatile, they're not actually available from Chocolate Baroque until the 7th December as they are exclusively The Craft Channel until then.
My first project is an MDF Xmas tree shape which I black Gesso'd first, then covered with Versamark Inkpad and used Lapis Black UTEE and heated until melted, I repeated the process but the second time I inked up this gorgeous ornate background stamp "Baroque Orchid" with Versamark and while the UTEE was molten I stamped into it, waited a moment or two for it to slightly cool before lifting the stamp off, once it was cool I added some gold gilding wax and buffed with a soft dry cloth.
Another MDF piece I Gesso'd first then painted with a Buff colour chalk paint, once dry I stamped the "Open Weave" stamp using an Archival Inkpad, I used the gorgeous Patchwork Butterfly as my feature which I stamped onto card and coloured using pencils, the sentiment is from "Positive Beauty" clear stamp set, the border is from the "Floral Edges" rubber stamp set.
I hope you like my designs as much as I enjoyed making them and they've inspired, thank you for taking the time to visit and comment, please pop back each day to see what my wonderful teamies have created with these gorgeous stamps, have a great day xx Zoe xx
