Hello! I’m back today with a tutorial using Darkroom Door’s new foot-long Numbers border stamp. The focal point on this page is an expression that always resonates with me: “You have two ears and one mouth. Listen twice as much.” I aspire to follow it.
I started out spraying Dyan Reaveley’s Dylusions Ink Sprays plus water on the right side of my journal. Next, I smooshed (technical term) the dry left page into the wet right one to absorb the excess.
I stamped the Numbers border stamp with Distress Ink and heat-embossed it with clear powder.
I do love stencils. Here I’ve added some very light mists of Dylusions through one of Michelle Ward’s StencilGirl stencils.
Use Your Stash
I tore out the right side page, and cut it up into embellishments. After stamping and cutting out the letters, I added old chipboard letters and paper punches to make accents.
Now the hard part: taking the sentiment and practicing it.
I hope you enjoyed this very pink tutorial.
