Sunday Stampers Blog Challenge

Hels asked me a few weeks ago if I would like to guest on Sunday Stampers Challenge, and of course I said yes! I had to make something that would go with a song title. What I had in mind was to use just black and white. She chose the song title -Ebony and Ivory- and I did the artwork!

I used offcuts of the black and white chipboard we sell, and used the four sisters stamp from
The Artistic Stamper's Garden Plate. This is a stamp I absolutely adore but haven't used much.
I used it three times in different ways, plain white ink on black card with our glossy accents, white ultra thick stamped with black stazon, and finally black ultra thick with a white memories inkpad. I then cut the finished stamps out, and layered them on card and them onto a long canvas, which was sprayed with black webbing spray. ( thank you DH for doing that part, as I am not very good with a spray can!). It was a bit of a mission photographing it as the Glossy Accents "bounced" off the camera, but hopefully you can see the end result.

My favourite bit is the white ultra thick as the faces came out 3D, giving it the most wonderful effect.

To enter the Sunday Stampers challenge go to Hels' blog, and get the chance to win the stamps too!
