Bold number stamping

Hi everyone,

It's September and that means STAMPtember at Simon Says Stamp. This month is entirely dedicated to stamping and this also goes for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. The theme for this week is 'Bold Stamping'! Do you want to stamp with a bright bold color or maybe you have a big bold stamp, or be in any other way bold in your stamping. Go for it, we want to see it!



This week I worked my art journal and I stamped with the bold numbers of the Purveyor set. I think that stamp is really cool. It was time for much texture and dimension. And I started with a layer of Gesso  and after that was dry I applied the mesh I got at the hardware store. I applied multiple layers of Multi Medium Matte ​​to make sure that I was propely adhered.



When it was dry, I applied a few different colors of Distress Ink to my Craft Sheet and with a bit of water and a brush, I applied the ink as if it were watercolor. The next step was playing with some Embossing Paste and the Bubble stencil for more texture.



Finally it was the Bold numbers turn. Think it's a cool effect stamping on an uneven surface. Despite my attempts to adhere the mesh down, two pieces got loose so I removed them. Because of the Multi Medium you hardly see that those pieces aren't there anymore.
