I have another project to share using the fabulous Art Houses stamp plate by Sam Poole!
I've gone brown and grungy for this one...
Multi Medium to glue these down, which meant I had a non porous coating to deal with when colouring over the top. This is both a positive and a negative, the colour I wanted to use (Distress Stains) isn't going to stay put or dry easily, but the finished result will look transluscent and nicely grunged up! I actually mixed a little stain with Ranger Glue and Seal, and sponged it on with a makeup sponge. Vintage photo first, then a little Walnut Stain. Once the glue dries, it also has a nice subtle sheen which I like!
I also stamped some background designs using the Bubbles, Chicken wire and the grid stamp from the Urban Beats plate. The little touches of red were done very simply by scribbling with a Distress Marker, then blending with a fingertip!
Can't wait to see the next lot of lovely rubber I'll be playing with for Creative Expressions!
