After putting together yesterday's post about this cool set of ImpressArt Metal Stamps from PJTool & Supply called Ballroom Boogie, it dawned on me that I had a bunch of these wooden bracelets left that I found years ago at a Mark's discount grocery store (3 for $1)!
I have made some fun projects over the years using paints, decopauge and markers, but never metal stamps!
I was so excited that as soon as I could this evening, I sat down to see if it would work! I was pretty happy with my first attempt here. I knew I wanted to use one of my favorite affirmations, "live and let live", but I didn't know until I got those 4 squares done what I would do with the last two.
I am looking forward to sharing this with some of my crafty coworkers tomorrow! After the stamping was done, I used a gold leafing paint pen in the stamped letter crevices and then wiped it off with a paper towel.
Yes, I see that I hammered a little too hard in some places and not hard enough in others, but I think this was a pretty good first effort!
Please let me know what you think and continue to share your stamping ideas and experiences if you have a minute!! I'm on to metal stamping tomorrow! :)
Once again I am wishing I had one of those swarovski heat tools to set some crystals on these wooden squares! Wouldn't that be cute!
