First of all I want to say thanks to Pam for asking me to be a small yet BIG part of her blog. I'm very honored. So with that said.....I'M TAKING OVER !
Once I found out that Pam wanted to featured me I started to think of what I could share with you all. Well Pam, sent me this wonder template to use and OF COURSE I couldn't resist (as always)!
(The first and second images are the actual templates to print out - click the image to get a larger picture and then save or print. To learn how to use templates read the text on the right-hand bar.)
(The third image is the actual sketch if you want the option to do that)
Here is the digital layered template for Photoshop:
But before I get to show you what I've done with it, I'm going to show you close-ups and how to use some scrap supplies you might have laying around. What I used was some chipboard, maya roads mist/glimmer mist, acrylic paint, a paint brush,and a needle/paper piercer of some kind. As long as you can stab into the chipboard, but not all the way. Just enough to get a grip like so.
First, I took my mist and sprayed over the chipboard or what some like to call masking. I did this over the area I wanted on my cardstock.
Then, what I did was dip my chipboard into some paint. This is where, if you prefer, you can use your paint brush to paint on the chipboard. What I'm doing is making a stamp with my chipboard, since I don't have a stamp in the shape I want. This is where you make use of some scrappy supplies.
Here is my finish layout.
So if you are ever in a rut or need a stamp, but don't have it, CHECK your chipboards! Who knows, you might have the shape you need in there. Just one last thing.
Leave a comment and I will pick one lucky person to win a $25 gift certificate to Scrapbook.com! I will give you all till midnight Sunday Eastern time to enter.
Well thanks for letting me share with you all.
