It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about making your own background. We're using Darkroom Door products, if you have them we'd love to see them used in your project, if not, that's okay too. We're looking forward to see your gorgeous background projects.
For this challenge I made a background with the Buttons stamp from Darkroom Door. When I saw the stamp, I thought it was so awesome! It's a background stamp and I wanted to use it for background. I stamped with Archival Ink Jet Black, and it's quite a busy and bold background, but also very cool.
With Prima Marketing Watercolor pencils I colored a few of the buttons. The pencils are very subtle and that's exactly what I wanted, because the stamp was already intense enough. For some reason it seemed as if the ink reacted with water, but it shouldn't because it's a waterproof ink. Probably the ink wasn't completely dry yet.
I'm now in a phase where I use black aquarelle pencil everywhere to apply shadow effects, and with a little White Gelly Roll Pen as accents. Because the theme, I used my sewing machine and sew around the edges. Love that look, but it's such a hassle to get out the machine that I hardly do it.
See below for the video of the entire process. Unfortunately, I occasionally was out of frame. Learning moments...
