25 Shades of Phrases – by Angela

November 20, 2019

Hello dear Roadies! Angela here with a brand new project made with just one single stamp set, Days_e Phrases stamp.


To make it, I started stamping and embossing the teeny phrases of Days_e Phrases stamp on a piece of white cardstock and cut each phrase so to have a bunch of teeny strips.



Afterwords, I grabbed all the Distress Oxide inks I have and started coloring each strips in a different color. With some of the Oxides, I also colored the background of a 12 inches white Bazzil using the smudging technique. For those who don’t know it, basically the technique consists of squeezing the ink pad on a plastic bag. You add a bit of water and then smudge the plastic bag to spread the color on the cardstock.



I arranged all the colored strips in a kind of rainbow order. I sticked the strips using foam adhesive and I didn’t aligned them for purpose. I wanted to achieve a spontaneous and authentic feeling, like me and my hubby in the photo – photo of a while ago!  For the title I cut the stamps to customize them to the layout. In fact, the original phrases were ‘The World Is’ and ‘With You In It.’



I love colors. They bring me joy and have the power to restore my soul. I enjoyed making this layout so much. Somebody said that in art the process is more important than the result. It is definitely what happened.


That’s all for today my dear Roadies, thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed the project and the process too and feel inspired to create your own piece of art with Ink Road stamps.
