It is in deed my honor to have been asked to work with the newly designed background stamps from
He is, by far, one of the kindest and most sharing Artists in the Industry. You can see his wonderful posts on his blog
for inspiration and creativity.
This is my project for the Hop.
I started with a piece of black chipboard. First I added a rather thick layer of white crackle paste and let it dry.
Next I sponged on some color making sure to get the ink into the cracks. You can soften the color with a baby wipe in the center.
This shows the lighter version after some of the color was removed.
Then I used Seth's stamps Fireworks and Scaffold with Black and Brown archival inks. Just to break it up a bit, I added white paint to the stamps for the next layer.
The turquoise dots are added with a stencil, acrylic paint, and foam square.
The metal frame with a vintage photo is the centerpiece of the the tag, and the top is a brass corner accented with patina guilders paste.
You can see the stamped images in this closeup as well as some white pen marks to add some interest.
The antique number plate on the bottom of the tag was taken from a set of vintage storage drawers in my brother-in-laws garage years ago. I've saved it for just that special project.
Now, please jump to the other blog hop players blogs and see what great things these Artists have come up with to highlight Seth's new stamps.
And leave them some love!
