2016 Topic 120: Squares and Grids
Hi everyone Jennie here.
Tonight I'd like to share with you my first outing with the fabulous new Infusions and some of my favourite Vintage Ink and the Dog Stamps. I missed the showcasing of the Infusions in the summer as I was on holiday so I am playing catch up to the rest of you! And of course I can now see why you have all been raving about them!
My plaque uses the Infusions in different ways and a selection of stamps which were just perfect for the current topic.
Step Two: Vintage Ink and the Dog ID07 were my main stamp set and I used a few of my favourite Ink and the Dog to fill in the spaces on the plaque.
Step Four: And then it was time to pull it all together. My base board was ordinary greyboard covered first with Gesso and then a coat of Prima Crackle Paste. It warped a little when it dried so I had to layer it onto another layer of greyboard covered with black cardstock.
Needless to say the rest of the Infusions set is now on order and I can't wait to experiment with them further, however, I was very impressed with the different effects I achieved just by spritzing or painting with water. Certainly Sage and Golden Sands have a lovely vintage feel to them and I enjoyed combining them with the Vintage Ink and the Dog stamps. I hope you love these stamps as much as I do and will give them an outing now and again.
