Ok, now that you have all of the details, here is my project. I made a small mixed media piece using pieces from pwp's May Nesting Components Mixed Media Kit, metal, paper, and a small burlap panel.
I got some of these Tim Holtz burlap panels and I've been itching to use them. I couldn't figure out a way to use stamps on it. I didn't want to simply stamp on paper and mount it. I wanted something different. I looked around my studio and pulled out my metal embossing tools. It was one of those "ah ha!" moments!
I took an image from the clip art sheet in the awesome new May Nesting Components kit, a sheet of pewter (aluminum, brass, or copper sheets work too just something thin enough to emboss), pwp's Floral stamp, an embossing tool, soft mat, and some ink.
I traced around the edge of my clip art sheet onto the metal. I flipped the metal over and stamped all around the edge of the metal.
Then I took an embossing or stylus tool and traced around the stamped image.
When you flip it back over, the stamped image is embossed on the metal.
I mounted the metal piece to the panel and added some more pieces from the May Nesting Components kit.
I'm so pleased with it I hung it in my bathroom with some of my other Mexican tins.
I hope you enjoyed my project. Lots of fun things can happen when you think of different things to stamp on besides paper. Rubber stamps are one of the most versatile tools a mixed media artist can use. The possibilities are endless.
