Challenge 2!

Challenge 2: Stamping with Household Objects

Stamps. There's a stamp for everyone: mounted, unmounted, rubber, acrylic, flowers, flourishes, frames, and more. I recently picked up Tsukineko's Tack 'n Peel, which you apply to an acrylic block to hold your unmounted stamps. It's quite sticky - which got me to wondering what else it would hold. A whole lot of stuff, actually. Paper clips, legos, coins, Mardi Gras beads... and on and on.

So, this week I challenge you to stamp on a layout. But using anything other than stamps. Look around your house and see what interesting textures and patterns you can find. Don't have Tack 'n Peel? No problem. Try a few pieces of double-sided tape on your acrylic block. Or, if your object is larger, just ink it directly and apply. Digi scrappers can get in on this, too. Scan or photograph your stamped image and turn it into a brush.

For example, I used a Dobie kitchen sponge with Tim Holtz Distress Ink to make a pattern on my background paper. I also used Legos with my block on the tag. And see that border at the bottom of my picture block? It's a brush I made from a Lego wheel.

So start rummaging through your junk drawer or your children's toy bin and see what you can find!

And did I mention the RAK? We're thrilled to have Studio Calico as our first Sponsor! Their kits really rock - and they've given us their September Home Ec kit filled with lots of American Crafts, a little Love, Elsie and Hambly thrown in, and features hand-crafted yo-yo's, corduroy and velvet-covered buttons, felt flowers, and self-adhesive fabric paper!

Now, let's play! Just upload your layout in the gallery of your choice and leave us a comment with the url to your layout. To be eligible for the RAK, please post by midnight Sunday, October 7th.

Here are our examples:

Deborah: I used three separate methods - two on paper and one digital. The subtle background was made using a Dobie kitchen sponge and Distress Ink, the small circles on the tab with a Lego brick, and the digital border by scanning the print made by a Lego wheel.

Becky: Becky made these cool circles on her background using an empty Prima ribbon spool and L'il Davis glitter paint.


Alicia: Alicia took a piece of corrogated cardboard, ran a paint dapper along the raised edge then stamped her cardstock.

I did two l/os as they will be beside each other in my 2007 vacation album. I used the bottom of my ds's Doodle Monster marker with red paint and a qtip with yellow paint.

Had fun with this one..I used a pencil eraser for polka dots, and i used a dried-up old sponge to 'RAKE' the rainbow paint. I cut notches in it for that affect.

Another fun challenge! I had total fun doing this challenge and I think I will be doing this technique a few more times in the future! I stamped the circles using a stress ball! It totally works, all my stress is gone while I was stamping with the ball, LOL!

I'm new to your challenges, but very excited! Love the ideas! I used two different leaves I found outside to stamp with. I took a close up shot too so you can see the detail it brought to the layout. Here it is:

My first shot at Method Playground - loving it so far. I did the circles with my curlers - I used 4 different sizes and went to town - it was so fun~! TFL!
