In May, I found a small rubber stamp company through DT calls. I hadn't heard of this company before so I investigated. This company is called Rubber Dance and is a owned by Bibi Lindahl in Norway.
Her stamps are amazing! I instantly fell in love with the company and applied to the design team.
I was asked to guest design! How exciting! I just love new toys.
I have been sitting on a project for almost a year, not quite sure where I wanted to go with my project. I had papered the box and tags and then the project stalled. Once I asked to guest design, I decided I wanted to use the Retro Beach stamps!
The Retro Beach stamps are gorgeous. The Sea Mesh background stamp is one of my favorites and I have been using it for all sorts of textures. I used every stamp on the sheet in this project.
I stamped with Distress Ink, and then I sprayed the stamped images with water. The water made the ink wick and I figured it was a great effect for a beachy project. This is why the stamps are a bit blurry. Then I used embossing powder on the edges and images to stand in for sand.
Above is the project with only stamping and embossing. Below are finished sides of the box.
The top of the box:
Here is the box with the mini-album. I would have liked to add more embellishments to the album, but I also wanted it to be able to fit into the box.
Here are some details so that you can see how the Distress Ink and embossing effects.
I hope you have enjoyed my mini-album and box made with stamps from Rubber Dance! Thanks for stopping by!
