WOW…you are going to love these. This was created using one of the new DECOR Stamps from Stampendous®. I used the DCR104 DECOR Cling Dream cling stamp and the new SSH88 DECOR Handle.
The large decor stamps let you stamp large areas with ease. They measure 8″ x 8″ and come in 5 different designs. The new handle is 8.5″ x 8.5″ and is a must. You will love how easy they are to use with both ink or paint.
My board uses Deco Art® Americana Acrylic Paints with the stamps. I love using a large Martha Stewart Specialty Sponge to apply the paint to stamps. You can quickly add the paint to to larger stamp and get a great print. Remember to keep the paint on the raised surfaces and out of the grooves as much as possible. Load the sponge and pouce off any excess onto a paper towel before applying the paint to the stamp.
I did let the painted words be rustic and did not worry about it being perfect coverage. I then spattered the back to add more of a rustic look. It is OK that not every letter comes out perfectly. You wouldn’t know if I didn’t tell you. You can get a perfect image by making sure you have no give to your surface and applying even pressure over the whole stamped area.
I then painted right over the top of the print design. I did use my Basecoat Stencils (www.lauriespeltz.com) for a quick an easy solution for the flowers. Would you expect any less?
The other stamp I incorporated was the SSC1257 Honeycomb Wishes Perfectly Clear Stamp Set. I love the small bees and the honeycomb pattern. So easy to use too.
The new DECOR stamps come in 5 great designs and here is a super big TEASE…you will be seeing them in new books and patterns releasing in August!!!! AWESOME!
