OOAHC Challenge 11 'Favourite Stamp'

This week at Out of a Hat Creations the theme is for you to use your favourite stamp(s) to make anything you like. Everyone is welcome to join in and we love to see what you have made.

I seem to have collected lots of stamps in the last year since I started blogging and love all of them so it was quite difficult to chose the ones to use for this project.

My choice was Swirly Birds from Personal Impression

I had some very old coasters that had been used as drip mats under plants for a few years and they definitely needed a make over.

Firstly I painted them with matt emulsion then dabbed a little distressed ink here and there and worked that into the emulsion while it was still wet. When all that was dry I stamped on the birds and a few leaves, painted a 'sky' and did the edges with gold paint. The little bits of wood and canvas were an after thought but add a bit of texture.

Do visit Florence, Sandra and Janet's blog and see how they made their challenge projects for this week they always come up with something terrific.
