Woodware - Dawn Heald


Happy Weekend everyone,
Can't believe it is here again, where
are the weeks going....
May tomorrow, that's scary.

This week we are featuring the
fabulous Woodware stamps.

Today is Dawn's turn,

This is what Dawn has to say.... 

Hi crafty friends,
I've made some bookmarks this week,
 thought they would go with the recipe
 book made a few weeks ago. I've used
 the same stamp but in a difference
 way by cutting up the elements. This
 is what I love about Woodware stamps,
 each stamp can be used multiple ways
 and they really are quality clear stamps and
 affordable. So do check them out.

To make the main bookmark pieces.

 A4 card, use distress inks to colour all over.
Then take the Liquid Pearls and squeeze
 some on a brayer and roll onto the inked card. 
Repeat all over card with both colours. Then
 brayer over this with a light layer of
 white gesso. Let dry then repeat with
 Liquid Pearls as before. Let dry.
Cut into strips to make bookmarks.

Next use the Sequin Waste Mask and
 the orange from Neon Ink set to
 stencil parts of the bookmarks.

Then using the little Happy wording from
 Flowers In A Row stamp set, stamp with
 red Stazon ink across the bookmarks. Edge
 the bookmarks with green pen.

Mount the bookmarks onto a larger
 pieces of Orange card.

Next using the Woodware Baking
 Sampler Stamp,
 stamp the whole image once and then just
 the word part another five times.

Colour in with alcohol pens. Then
 cut out each section.

Stick the coloured images to the bookmarks.

 Then finish with dots of white gesso and the
 wrong end of a paint brush around
 the bookmarks.

Wow, thank you Dawn, these
are so colourful!  I think these would
make a lovely gift!

If you want to have a go,
this is what Dawn used -

Distress Inks - Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted
 Citron, Marigold.
Liquid Pearls - Daffodil, Key Lime 

That's all for today,
I'll be back with......

Challenge Day!
