A craft stamper project

I am a huge fan of the magazine Craft stamper and almost always find projects in there I want to try - this is such a project. Ive also seen something similar (but much more techniques) at Art from the Heart . Dy does a class on this which looks Ace! Heres why I needed the trip to Ikea for 15 mirrors!

Well this was in last Octobers Craft Stamper but I have adapted it as I didnt want to use stampboard. So I have used mountboard tiles instead.

40 of them to be exact at one and a quarter inch square. i then inked each tile and stamped using archival ink. I havent themed them just stamped random images from my collection. They have then been embossed and edged with gold krylon pen - adherred with silicone glue and once dry I have sprayed it with clear varnish. Oh I forgot I added a charm to one of the tiles using wire and a jump ring.

We did this as a project at last weeks craft club. Not sure everyone was pleased to be cutting out 40 tiles or getting messy, inky fingers again but i hope they let me see the final results as the stamped tiles looked fab!

So thanks Craft Stamper for another fab idea xx
