It has been a crazy busy week for me but I wanted to pop in to share a new project and to announce the winner of the Shabby Apple $50 giftcard.
My project was a bit of a challenge for me. GlueArts teamed up with Tsukineko this week and I received some awesome stamp pads and their Goosebumps Texture Spray. I am not the world's biggest stamper. I love hand stamped projects but forget to use stamping to add uniquness to them. My photos aren't the greatest of the stamped image because it was so dark here the day that I took them, but hopefully you can see how I used the product.
The stamped area is the tag to the right of that adorable photo of my new grandson and my beautiful daughter. Oh, they are an amazing pair of people! We are so happy and blessed.
The Goosebumps Texture Spray was used as a resist to the ink and the images are the butterflies and flowers. I also stamped some images with ink first then layered the texture spray over it and added more ink. The colors that I used were Pear Tart, Cantaloupe, Sweet Plum & Rhubarb Stalk in Tsukineko's Memento Dew Drop Inkpads. I also stamped a few images directly onto paper to the right of the tag to make the stamping flow out from the tag onto the layout.
I layered some BasicGrey papers and a few odds and ends pieces like the old music paper. I popped the tag up fromt he background with some Glue Arts Raisen's 3/8" Adhesive Squares. (Remember, GlueArts always has great giveaways weekly on their blog posts HERE!)
The acrylic stamps are by Cherry Arte, Lawn Fawn & Hampton Art. I can't do a project without the Maya Road trinket pins and miscellaneous buttons. I love pins & buttons!
