Off the Page with NEW Stamps!
Hey There BoBunny fans :)
Today I wanted to share some stamping fun I've had with the new Floral Stamp set from BoBunny! I had found this box in Kmart which I guess would be the equivalent of Walmart. I loved the distress look of it and it matched the colour scheme of Garden Journal perfectly :)
An Altered Box - By Megan Gourlay
I wanted to capture the sketched appearance of the flower in the background paper with my stamping, so when I inked up my image I stamped it first onto scrap paper before stamping onto my project, so the image isn't so sharp and more muted.
I also wanted to make one of the floral cluster stamps look like it was behind the leaves stamp, so I masked the leaves and then stamped over the top. When you remove the mask it looks like there are two layers.
You can see in the close ups how they have blended well and look like part of the composition of the flower cluster.
