Altered Letter Holder

Hello, here’s another of my samples for the event day.  I kept this very simple, just paint, stamping & heat embossing.
I painted the wood first with gesso, to seal it, then with Scallion Martha Stewart paint & finally some Summer Linen. I inked the edges with black Archival ink.


The stamping was done with Versacolor inks – Bamboo & Heliotrope. These inks won’t dry on acrylic paint, so you need to use clear embossing powder on top. I used a number of different stamps; Lavinia Stamps, Woodware, Card-io, Hobby Art, details below.


The little birds are a Hobby Art stamp. I stamped them onto tissue paper with black Stazon, coloured them on the reverse with felt tip pens & used Mod Podge to adhere the tissue to the box, sealing the image with Mod Podge too.


The sides were stamped with the same Versacolor inks as above, using more Lavinia Stamps & a Hobby Art flourish stamp. Again, all the stamps used are listed below.


Gesso      Scallion Summer Linen   Mini Flowers   Nesting     Decorative Backgrounds Stamp Set    Field Grass Poppy Pods     Weaving Ivy   Flutterby Garden     Versacolor Bamboo     Versacolor Heliotrope   WA01 Clear Gloss 160ml     Stazon Ink Pads
Just a reminder that we’re in the final week of the current blog challenge. If you would like to enter details are on the challenge page.
Thanks for looking, see you next time.
