I love those projects that are so simple yet pack a punch.
Like, for example, this cork stamp art that I’m totally loving.
The beauty about this project is that it could be any size you like. As you can see, mine is rather large.
Here’s how I made mine. I started with some plain brown paper. The kind that is usually meant for packing.
Using spray adhesive, I glued my brown paper to a piece of medium density fiberboard.
Here’s my “canvas”, but before it’s ready to stamp I needed to mark it. I made tiny pencil marks every two inches so I knew where to stamp.
I wanted to use three different colors so I needed three corks so I could stamp the colors at the same time. I could only find two corks that were the same size….so….I stole one from my vanilla bottle. See the cork that is slightly darker? Vanilla bottle cork. (which reminds me, I still need to replace that.)
In this picture you can also see the pencil marks. I stamped right on top of them, they were the perfect guide.
I put the paint on paper plates and was ready to start cork stampin’! I used white, black and gray paint.
Sometimes the paint got a little thick on the corks so I used the plate to “blott” some of the paint off.
Then I just started stamping. Randomly.
I love the imperfections of the circles.
I put this stamp art on the mantle and it looks fantastic!
Also, I’m thinking how great this will be in a Halloween vignette….
Until next time….
