Advertising Space...

...tis time for me to showcase another gorgeous new Darkroom Door stamp for my DT piece... and this time I have been playing with the fabby new background stamp called Gazette.  It is a big stamp too, which means that it makes a versatile addition to your collection... use it, as I have, in its entirety... or cut out the adverts and use them individually... colour the adverts, ink them up in different colours... the ideas are limitless!    To hop on over to see Darkroom Door and all the goodies they have, please CLICK HERE.  Also, it is worth a hop on over to see the Darkroom Door blog too... my teamies have been creating some gorgeousness... and HERE's the link for the blog.



My creation started out as an offcut of mountboard that was cut to the same size as the background stamp - which is approx 41/4" by 6"... told you, it is a cracking size.  You can also see the detail in the this stamp too... a close up of my creation will help you see the teensy text is perfect!




I covered the mountboard with a coat of Distress Paints in Antique Linen, Bundled Sage and Broken China and then once this was dry, stamped my image onto cosmetic tissue, cut it to size and then used Glue & Seal to collage the tissue to the mountboard base.  Once this had dried off, I used a smidge of Antique Linen DP on my finger to blend over the top of the tissue stamping to tone it into the background.  Next, I painted the outer edges of a 5 x 7 canvas board with Black Soot DP and popped a piece of organza ribbon onto the mountboard piece... glued the two together and then added eyelets and some rusty wire for a hanging.  The decorations are paper flowers, the words are from the Art De Fleur Word Strip from Darkroom Door and three ickle butterflies from the Wings set which were coloured with Distress Marker.  A few pearls as finishing touches and voila, one vintage hanging!



That's all from me for today... thanks for looking!  TTFN

Love that stamp - pity it doesn't seem to be available over here yet. Any idea when it will arrive (along with the rest) over in the UK?
Sending for it from UA is too expensive for me!
Bea and I had a meltpot day yesterday. Lots of trial and error (especially error) learning and FUN.
Janet

I hope you don't mind me jumping in here to answer Janet... yes, the stamps have arrived in the UK at Darkroom Door's UK distributor (Personal Impressions)... Yay! So if your fave store currently doesn't have it in stock, please ask them to contact Personal Impressions to order it in for you! I hope this helps!

Thanks everyone for your kind comments on the stamp and on Hels amazing work! She's a superstar, isn't she :) We are so very lucky to have her on our Design team this year!
