A bit of stamping

Ok so as you know i am a scrapbooker and not a card maker or stamper. I only own two sugar nellies, a large alphabet set, a tiny alphabet set, a fleur de lyl type thing and a large Tim Holtz Harlequin stamp.

Now this said harlequin stamp is my all time favourite stamp. I use it all the time. I confess, i often dont know what i am doing with the stamp but i try, lol

So hear are two little projects i have been working on recently. The first is a journal page made on canvas. Again another Donna Downey inspired project from the Layers video i downloaded. Again only $5 and well worth it.

I stuck newspaper print all over the canvas and then layered up with paints, fabric and PP. I then used my harlequin stamp down the right hand side and shaded in the diamonds to add depth and texture with my water colour pens and inks.

Added a large rub on that i stole from my mum, lol

Next project was intended as my page for the stamp challenge for our scrap attack event but i think i will keep it, lol. For this page i painted a piece of 4 x 6 CS in light blue acrylic paint. I edged around the outside in a darker blue paint. I then inked up my stamp with black ink and pale blue paint and stamped on to the page.

I then took a sequin waste and painted over it with black paint. When i took the waste away some of the paint came away as well to reveal white spots every now and again. A happy accident.

I then took blues, greens and silver inks to edged around the outside and add depth to the harlequins.

I stamped some spare harlequins and painted then up in blue again before adding them to the harlequin grid with foam pads.

I coloured a stamped image in browns and added it to the page before stamping over the image with flower stamps. I embellished with prima flowers and do craft sparkly brads. I added text to the page to break up the area.

Oh and this was the same stamp i used on the Daniel Journal page from a few weeks posts ago. I just masked off one section down the middle and stamped away.

So there you have it, different ways to use the same stamp.

TFL as always
