Stampbord Plaque


I've been playing with stampbord again!!  I coloured the individual pieces with the brighter of the shades of distress inks; mowed lawn, mustard seed, rusty hinge, spiced marmalade, peacock feathers, salty ocean and festive berries.  I stamped the PA and LP images in black stazon and did the scrapy thing!!

The mdf plaque was coated in gesso and then in snowflake fresco paint.  The background was coloured with mowed lawn, salty ocean, barn door, rusty hinge and mustard seed distress paints and edged in black soot.

Unfortunately it's a bit of a dull day today so the colours aren't as bright as they are in real life.

Anything but a Card have challenged us to get messy, and I certainly did with this one!!

Love this Sam. One of the things I like about Stambord is the ability to do the scrapy thing to highlight areas and/or create some texture and these images are perfect for it. I agree with Lin about the colours on the top one.

Hi I'm Sam, 43, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 23 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 6 years and 7 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
