I have been wanting to try creating faux postage stamps for awhile now, so when I saw the Dreamweavers Large Tile stencil I was excited to give it a try!
I kept the stencil in place while inking the paper with Shabby Shutters and Antique Linen. I spritzed it with a bit of water. Next, I made a wash of Broken China with water and splattered it over the stencil. Dry with a heat gun. I stamped a collage of stamp images over the entire stencil. The last step was to stamp the main image in black ink and color with pencils.
I have a tutorial on how to create the faux metal embossed button over at Paper Craft Planet...HERE.
Using Translucent Embossing Paste and the large flourish stencil, I added a bit of detail to the corners of the cardbase.
Now you know what to do. Its time to HOP.
