So what do you do when your clipboard fades due to sun exposure? Well, you give it a make-over by getting out the rubber stamps and ink and stamping all over it!
I just love this month's theme "Things with Wings." I could stamp with this theme for every project I make. I used the beautiful butterfly stamp set called Love of Butterflies.
Follow along as lead you through the transformation process. Let's get started!
- Love Of Butterflies Rubber Stamp Set
- Dandelion Wishes & Butterflies Stamp Set
- Waterdrops Background Stamp
1. Select stamps and practice your arrangement on the clipboard. (TIP: Take a photo so that you may refer to it as you create in order to avoid disappointment at being able to recreate the design from memory.)
5. Create masks by stamping the butterfly onto scrap paper. Cut out the duplicate image and carefully align the mask over the stamped butterfly images on the clipboard. Use black ink to stamp the dandelion slightly overlapping the butterfly. Remove the mask to reveal a layered image where it appears that the stem goes behind the butterfly.
6. Apply watermark ink to the waterdrops stamp and stamp in any open areas to add a subtle texture. Apply clear embossing powder and heat set.
8. Use watermark ink to stamp flourishes. Some images should overlap the previous black stamping, as well as, overlap the edge of the clipboard. Apply gold embossing powder. Remove the excess embossing powder, check for any stray particles, and heat set.
9. Create a border by applying watermark ink around the edge of the clipboard. Then add gold embossing powder and heat set. Use your finger to apply the ink to create a hazy and less precise frame. If you want a sharp straight border edge, mask the edge before applying the ink.
