I have another trio of projects to share with you from the new Darkroom Door release, this time I’ve been creating with Dream Big Sentiment stamp.
These long stamps are a great size for running top to bottom over a card front as I’ve used below, but they also give you a bunch of themed sentiments to use on a variety of projects. Just stamp out the whole image and snip out the individual sentiment you are after. Don’t forget to tuck the rest of the strip away for next time you need a quick word or two.
I think this card covers a few different occasions – the recipient can almost do a ‘choose your own message’ from it. The background was created by stamping Darkroom Door Spanish Tiles background stamp over a dictionary page painted with acrylic paint. I used Distress Oxide ink for a lovely opaque effect.
Can you tell I love creating different backgrounds? This was a simple one – a few squirts of Dylusions Shimmer Spray over watercolour card and then I overlaid a piece of bubble wrap and set the card aside to dry. The bubble wrap left the most wonderful abstract pattern behind.
I think the range of sentiments on this stamp will give you lots of options for greeting cards, scrapbooking and art journaling. I trimmed out a positive message for this shimmery card.
I like being able to separate the words of a sentiment or quote stamp and put them into a different arrangement for art journal pages. This means they can become a greater feature on the page, as I have done here.
This page was created over a background painted in pale shades of grey and apricot acrylic paint, I found a couple of interesting succulent images in a magazine and thought they would look good with the sentiment I wanted to use. The little birdie is Darkroom Door Robin Eclectic – he looks so cute on the page with the plants!
