Foam ....

We have a Challenge this month over on UK Stampers Forum where we are to make a stamp from foam using a die to cut it. Then make something using the stamp .... this is mine ....

I used 3 mm thick fun-foam and die-cut this with the flower die which I then glued to a piece of thick black card as a base. It cut very easily.

I then dug out my Adirondack inks and inked the stamp with wild plum ink and stamped 3 times onto a piece of white card.  I then used a waterbrush and spread the ink.  I then used butterscotch and denim inks to make washes to produce a background.  Once happy I dried with a heat gun, trimmed out and matted onto black card, sticking onto a fuschia coloured card base on foam pads. A small amount of Stickles glitter glue was applied to the flowers.

The sentiment was stamped in Versamark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder on black card.  This was trimmed out and applied as shown on more foam pads.

Great idea to make extra stamps from your dies.  If you fancy joining in do click HERE to join the Forum ... we are Fun, Friendly & Fun .... all are welcome !!!

  1. What a great use of the flower - it gives it such a different look to that of a die cut. A wonderful card in vibrant, bold colours
