Eileen Hull and Stampotique Collaboration

This month Eileen Hull's DT are collaborating with Stampotique Originals for a month of inspiration.
I decided to create a colourful Passport book using Eileen Hull's Scoreboard XL Passport Die which is one of my favourites and I decorated each page using Stampotique Stamps.
I began by die cutting the Passport Book from mountboard and then I brayered each piece with Dina Wakley Heavy Body Acrylics, ink this case I used Turquoise and Lime.
I then stamped Kassa's Bloom with Black Archival Ink onto both my front and back covers. I painted each of the flowers with Dina Wakley Acrylics, Tangerine, Ruby, Lemon, and Turquoise paints. Once the paint was completely dry I then stamped over the top again to add the lines of the flower back into the image. I used my Tim Holtz Stamp Platform for this process so that I could stamp straight over the top of the paint.
Stamping over the top of the paint once again adds all the detail back into the image which was lost during the painting process. I then added a few highlights of turquoise and Lemon Paint to the flower.
I then added delicate splatters of white paint to lift the design further and also added the WISH word again using Black Archival Ink.
I added a few more highligts of white to the wording, again to just lift the imagery once more.
I added three pages to the inside of my Passport Book, again die cut from mountboard. This page has the Take Your Time image on the right and Spidergrass stamped on the left hand side. I stamped the Spidergrass image with Dina Wakley Paints and Black Archival Ink, to add layers and give dimension to the page. I also added delicate splatters of white and black paint along with scratchy lines added with an old credit card.
My next page has Wally stamped in Black Archial and painted with Dina Wakley Paints.
My last pages have the Spidergrass once again along with paint splatters and scratchy paint lines.
I fastened my pages with coordinated twine. I love the combination of the turquoise, lime and more vibrant orange, red and yellow.


Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

Stunning work with the Stampotique stamps, Tracy, and all that wonderful paintwork. I'm so glad I had some time today to catch up a bit with what you've been doing. I've enjoyed each and every post I've seen - and I think those wiry houses may be one of my all-time ever favourite things!
