You asked for it on Facebook…so here you go!
The “how to” I have for you today is about this adorable scrapbook page that Kirsten made:
The polka dots were made using stamps and paints by Claudine Hellmuth (she also used some black VersaFine ink on the dots too). All you’ll need are the stamp sets you’re going to use (you really could use any stamp or stamp set to create a cool background for a scrapbook page), paints, paint brushes, ink if you choose to use it, and all of your other scrapping items for that page. So here goes:
Step Two: Apply a light layer of paint the the foam stamp. You can also paint on clear stamps and rubber stamps.
Step Three: Stamp your image.
Step Four: Apply more paint and stamp the image again. Repeat as many times as you need to complete the image. On Kirsten’s scrapbook page, she switched colors and then stamped again.
Step Five: Grab the clear stamp (Kirsten used the Claudine Hellmuth stamps that go together) and ink up the stamp with black ink. She’s using VersaFine.
Step Six: Stamp the image over the image you stamped using paint.
Step Seven: Ta Da! You’ve created a funky border down the bottom (or side, or top) of your scrapbook page!
It’s easy as that! Make sure you check out the Claudine Hellmuth stamps and paints. They really are an easy way to add a lot to your artsy craftsy project!
