Keyring from The Stampman on Create & Craft 15th sept (part 1)

I'm going to start showing my creations from The Stampmans show on create and craft which was on wednesday.  Jill did a fab show as always packed full of techniques and well worth watching.  For heads up on future appearances by Jill follow The Stampman blog which is always packed with tips too!

Okies first up my domino keyring.  This is quite an easy technique to do using starburst stains.  Ink up your stamp with a pigment/embossable ink and place it face up on the table.  Sand down a domino to remove the very shiny surface and wipe clean.  Place the domino down onto the stamp.  Now then if you fluff this you simply wipe clean and try again, doms are quite slippy so it may take a couple of goes if you're new to it.

OK now your image is there emboss it.  Once cool enough to touch take a paintbrush and use some starburst stains (make sure you shake before use to get the mica powder mixed)  Place drops of the stains on the domino until it puddles on the surface then using your heat gun at a distance gently dry it.  If you get too close and the stains wll blow off the sides so just add more if it does and move the heat gun further away.  I repeated 3 times to get a real depth of colour.  I coloured the heart with a touch of alcohol inks and when completely cool wipe gently over the embossing to remove the mica powder (or leave it on if you like the effect!)

Domino was finished off with gold stardust beads, black swarovski and red glass hearts with antique gold filagree leaves.  Used Aspects of Design 62 - Artistic Elements
