Hi All!! Last night I tried something I had never before attempted! I put an ink stamp on chalk paint. I had building my courage for it for a while, and last night was the night!
I got to use some of my pre-done bits of art and combine them in a new way. 🙂
Arizona is a bit humid right now with Monsoons right around the corner, the ink on my block was not dry after sitting all night, so I sprayed with hair spray after. It worked but occasionally when putting the rest of the things together on it, the block felt a little sticky, I’m sure from the humidity. Using a spray adhesive that dries clear and permanent might be a better bet if your project will be exposed to humidity at all.
- I used the extra block from this post
- 2 of the water colored wood stickers from this post
- Rhinestone stickers from the 99₵ Store.
- Grosgrain Ribbon in Teal with a pretty sparkly silver design on it
- Hot glue and Hot glue gun
- Ink pad
- Hair spray or some kind of spray sealant
- Gather your supplies listed above.
- Go for it!! Ink your stamp and place it on the finished block. Allow to dry for a little while. I’d probably go with at least an hour to attempt to have it dry on it’s own.
- Seal with adhesive spray to ensure that the ink doesn’t smudge later without it or having it affect your ink placement like a brush would.
- Add embellishments. I then took a piece of fabric and covered the back and put a ribbon around the outside to finish it off along with hot gluing the wood stickers and the rhinestones on.
Have fun experimenting with new techniques yourself! Not everything will work out, but when it does… it feels really good!!!! Your turn!!! Go experiment and create something wonderful!!!
