 I’m sharing a project I made with EXOTIC stamp by Block Wallah.


I have to say.....I HAD SOO MUCH FUN
playing with my Block Wallah stamp!
I began by pulling out some sheets of vintage paper...


Here is a little video of my stamp exploration....



Once I had my "stamped papers" created....


I pulled out a few more of my faves to use....
a bit of paper mesh....
(I brush on a bit of Multi Medium to hold it together.)

 

 and a piece of handmade paper
that I cut to size.


Here is my completed card
using the Block Wallah Stamp ~ Exotic

other "papers" I created using the Block Wallah Stamp.

Oh, I just know you were going to create something fabulous for Topflight Stamps grand opening blog hop and, of course, I was right!!! This is so cool and pretty!! I love the Block Wallah stamp and what you've done with it here! Those colors and textures are to die for!! I'm still going back to gaze at all the details and feeling more and more inspired by this lovely piece!! Amazing work!!

I love all the layers on your card.

Billie A said...

wow your project is very pretty. So creative. I have some wooden stamps like that so I need to break them out and use. I have some Ranger paint dobbers which would be easy to apply to the blocks. I like what you did. Would it be easier to use the brayer when you apply the paper to the painted wood block vs. using fingers over the paper?? I am so glad you did the video. Thanks

Lynne, Lynne, Lynne...can I just say that I want to BE you when I'm brave enough to break out of my shell? You amaze me so much with what you create. And that sentiment?! I almost started bawling!! As much as that mad me want to start to cry, though? Your video was awesome!! Loved hearing you explain the "process". :) I, too, have a Gelli Plate that sits collecting dust. Just not my thing.

ANYWAY!! Your card is beyond fabulous. As are you. xo
