Pencilled Cube

Today I am showcasing my Border Stamp Numbered Pencils #165 from AALLandCreate. All the new products are available from our Stockists listed HERE.
I wanted to create something a little different this time around to showcase the wonderful imagery. I opted to use Eileen Hull's die to create a decorated cube or an ATB, Artist Trading Block as they were known by. This imagery really appeals to my love of vintage and the possibilites are endless and so easily combined with many of the other stamps in the AALLandCreate library.  I opted for more vintage tones this time around, creating a background with Distress Oxide Inks.
A touch of colour has been added to the background with the use of Evergreen Bough Distress Oxide Ink. I have also incorporated lots of layers to this piece from vintage book pages to natural twine and broken pencil.
Die cut circles have also been used to act as spotlights.
I added my cube to a wooden stand and also included a story stick, the word 'story' seemed very appropriate for the imagery.
The words on this stamp set can also be used on their own, combined with many other stamp sets. I added a pencil to the top of my cube for added dimension and interest.
I really enjoyed creating this piece and hope you fall in love with the detail as much as I have. Tracy x x
