Hello and Happy Thursday! Earlier this week, I shared another Guest Designer project for 100 Proof Press Stamps. Today, I would like to share with you that project, mixed media layout, using stamps to create subtle background texture.
To prep my chipboard background, I painted a coat of black gesso, allowing 'brush' strokes to be visible. I then added several Shimmerz Spray Mists and Inklingz to add some color to the stark black.
Now for the texture: I began by heat embossing the top and bottom corners, using 5817X. This is a great stamp for background texture making!
I then added more texture with 6488Y, 5497V, and 5483P. These are also great background and mixed media stamps. Using contrasting ink, the stamp images really pop.
To finish it off, I added several metal embellishments and my title. Super quick, yet one-of-a-kind!
