{Spotlight Project} Shirley Goes On A Hashtag Spree




I've been playing with all the hashtag words in the February 2017 stamp club set, Hello You


I laid them in two rows on an acrylic block then stamped across a kraft panel with Versamark.


You'll observe that the stamping isn't very neat! Fortunately it was just going to be a background. I embossed it with clear powder before sponging Old Paper Distress Ink through the Just Squares stencil.


Then I diecut a panel of white card using the Art Edges CUTplorations die. I stamped and fussy cut the mobile phone and watercoloured it with Hickory Smoke.


I had to perform a bit of stamp surgery because my panel was too narrow to accommodate the "It's been a while" sentiment on one line. I stapled the panel to the background then mounted it onto my card base.


I like the contrast of hashtags/mobile phone and good old-fashioned notepaper :)

If you try out any of the techniques from our Spotlight posts, link up your project up at our Spotlight Project Showcase.
