Bibi Lindahl, owner of, and designer for, Rubberdance Art Stamps is the cover star of our February 2017  issue!

She says:

I have moved many times, but to paraphrase the old song: wherever I lay my stamps, that’s my home! I made these projects to illustrate a stamper’s home in a house. 

The house shapes were drawn on watercolour paper and cut out. I gave them a mist of water before applying two to three colours of Distress Spray Stains. (Any liquid ink or watercolour will work). Lift the houses up, turn them to one side and watch how the inks run and blend. Such a fun and easy technique!

Decorate the houses with small stamps, doodle a black frame and then sprinkle with white acrylic paint. Mount your houses on cardstock to make them sturdy.

The small houses and flowers are stamped with a waterproof ink on smooth watercolour paper. I then coloured them with Distress Spray Stains and a water brush, cut them out and adhered them to the house shapes to finish.
