Bored. A Mixed Media Piece using Scrolls Work Stamps ***GIVEAWAY!*** Closed.

***If you are looking for the Skipping Stones Design Blog Hop please click HERE!  Thanks! ***

Have you checked out Scrolls Work Stamps?  You need to.  For reals.  I will be honest, until the wonderful Jacque got in touch with me, I had never even seen this site, but OH MY RUBBER!  I fell in love pretty much instantly.  Just say'n!

Scrolls Work offers so many amazing varieties of stamps for all kinds of stampers!  Funny stamps?  Yup.  They've got 'em.  Art stamps?  Yup!  They've got those.  Steampunk awesomeness?  Heck YA!  They totally have that goin' on!  ALICE STAMPS!!!  TOTALLY!  And they are really good ones, too!!!!

Jacque was awesome enough to send me some stamps to play with for this feature.  Folks, let me tell you something - I am picky about my stamps.  I like a good, clear, crisp image without overstamping and such.  Well, let me tell you something - Scrolls Work stamps are beautiful!  The unmounted rubber is so well etched!  The images are clear and brilliant!  I used them on a variety of surfaces, too!

Another awesome thing about these stamps, or actually, the Scrolls Work site, itself, is that you can see the ACTUAL size of each stamp before you buy it.  It is so hard to figure that out sometimes, but when you visit the pages on Scrolls Work you can click on any image and it will bring up a size picture with rulers to let you see the dimensions.  I LOVE that!   Also, Jacque and her team offer excellent customer service!  She is on top of things and communicates so quickly!  I love that!  Also, shipping is reasonable and FREE if you order $100 or more!

Anyway, enough babbling, I want to show you what I made using some of the stamps from Scrolls Work!

Bored.




Bored.

This is a mixed media altered book piece.  I cut a window in the cover of an old book and then cut the same window through about 100 pages or so.  I covered the front with the text paper from the inside of the book and then swashed it with watercolors.  The image of the woman is placed a few pages in so that she has some dimension.




Bored.  Top Detail.

This is one of my favorite things!  I actually used a key hole stamp to create this dresden trim-style border.  I simply stamped the image in Versamark on the vintage paper and embossed it with gold powder.  I then cut the four points from the key hole image to create this border!  I love using my stamps to their fullest!




Bored.  Face and hat detail

The image of the girl is coated with a thin coat of wax.  The hat is another one of those fabulous Scrolls Work images!  I REALLY love this stamp!  You WILL be seeing that one again!  LOL!




Bored.  Wing detail

And here, my friends, was the real test.  I wanted a nice clean image on MUSLIN!  And I GOT IT!  Yup!  I stamped the tattered wing image on the muslin in VersaMark and embossed it, then sprayed it with Glimmer Mist for the dyed look.  I am seriously impressed with how beautifully the image stamped onto fabric!  BRILLIANT!  As you can see, I also stamped the watch image directly onto the book with StazOn ink.  Again, beautiful! 




Bored.  Ribbon Detail

The book is held together with a series of ribbons, twine, and fibers.  I added a few baubles, for the pretty factor.  'Cause, you know it has to be pretty!  LOL!




Bored.  Center with Candlestick

I really enjoyed working with Scrolls Work stamps!  And guess WHAT!?!  I want you to enjoy working with them, too, so I am offering a GIVEAWAY!!!!

As I mentioned earlier, Jacque sent me some wonderful stamps to work with.  They are so wonderful, that I want to keep them and so I am going to!  LOL!  HOWEVER!  I am going to buy a $10 gift certificate for one of YOU because I like them so much and I want you to play!!!!
