Art with Everything
The basis was a rubber stamp I've had for quite a while now, I don't honestly remember where it came from, quite possibly something I spotted on E-Bay.
All I know about it is that it's called MI703, Stamp It Block 3.It's copyright 2000 Stamp It! and I believe they are/were an Australian company.
There were two ways I could have done this, and I suppose I chose the slightly more involved way, lol. First off, I stamped the image in Versafine Onyx Black, then sprinkled with clear powder and heat embossed.
Then I used the ink remaining on the stamp to stamp again on the back of one of the masterboards.
I could really have cut this step in half and just stamped and heat embossed directly onto the front of the masterboard.
I checked each piece fitted first, and made any minor adjustments before sticking them down.
The finished piece, with the sheet of black off cut that it will be matted onto.
Matted and added to a 5"x5" card blank, and I orientated it so the fold was at the top, rather than the side.
The 'Art With Everything' words are from a Chocolate Baroque set, called Artistic Affirmations.
Again, stamped in Versafine onto another bit of the masterboard, then matted onto black scrap of card, and mounted below the image.
I'm going to link this with Darnells NBUS( Never Before Used Stash/Stuff) as I've had this stamp quite a while, but this is the first time I've used it.
