Hi all.. I'm an experienced stamper but have a dilemma here..
We are moving into a new house. I want to use stamping for some of my
decorative touches but unlike here where I stamped with paint directly on
the walls, I don't want to do that in the new house.
I don't have any extra cash right now and don't have many colors in
permanent inks. I do however have every SU color of water based inks.
Can anyone think of some kind of medium to stamp on that I could use wall
paper paste to attach it to the walls. I had thought of vellum but then I
would have to heat emboss everything and I don't want to do that for several
reasons.. I don't have enough embossing powder right now and purchasing more
is out of the question until we sell our current home, I don't want it shiny
and I really don't think it would adhere well with wall paper paste.. that I
have tons of from previous projects around here.
I thought of muslin but I'm afraid that the paste would be just a bit too
wet and the ink would run. Card stock seems a bit heavy but I could use
that.. my girls supplied me well with white card stock over the years.
What I'm going to do so you get an idea of what I'm going for is.. I have a
stencil that looks like lattice work. I was going to stencil that around
the top of the walls in my bedroom and then using SU's DD Hydrangea set
stamp the leaves and flowers and place them in and around the lattice so it
looks like that laser cut border. I had even considered putting a few up
here and there and stenciling over it so it gives it a 3-D look.
I'm moving this weekend, so I won't be back to look at the answers until
next week.. but thought maybe someone could come up with some ideas!
Thanks in advance,
