The white rabbit has struck here again cos I'm late. late, late for the current Ready, Steady, Stamp Challenge which I've been trying to get finished for the last 10 days! As usual, there are 5 ingredients and if you use all 5, which I have, there's a fabulous chance to win a Paper Artsy prize kindly donated by Leandra.
Here's what I made which is a little piece of art on mountboard
I've actually used one of the new Paper Artsy Hot Pick stamp sets, HP1005, which I bought at Ally Pally along with the bird die from their fabulous new range of dies which match some of the hot pick stamps.
I've also used one of Hobby Art's fabulous new clear stamp sets CS013D Anna's Collection-Floral Greetings which has some gorgeous flowers and leaf sprigs.
I covered my mountboard with a piece of vintage music score I found in a charity shop and inked it with olive VersaColor ink. I stamped the grass from the Paper Artsy set twice in black on another piece of music score, cut it out and inked with violet and olive. I stuck this at the base of the panel.
I cut a piece of corrugated coffee cup holder, painted it light green and dry brushed on some white gesso. I then stamped a leaf sprig from the Hobby Art set all round the edges in black. I stamped the large flower 3 times on music score and the smaller one once. I inked these with pink and purple inks and cut them out.
I stamped the Paper Artsy bird in black, cut it out with the bird die and inked the white with purple ink. I then stamped song and bird, cut them out and inked them with pink ink. I printed out the computer generated music text, cut this out with scissors and scallop scissors and inked with pink.
For the rubber ingredient, I used a spare piece of red rubber from some unmounted stamps I recently cut out. I trimmed the lower edge with scallop scissors and inked it with olive green Stazon ink although the end result came out almost black.
I ssembled all the pieces as you see in the photo.
