Partnering with Clear Scraps and Joy Clair~

Hi guys!!
 Today is my turn on the Clear Scraps blog and we are partnering
with Joy Clair stamps.   I created a cute Scalloped Wood Phone Stand
 using stamps by Joy Clair.  Really fun and so many options using stamps
to help design your project.

1. Sand the wood lightly before adding color.
2. Paint all sides (I used a metallic acrylic paint) and then sand lightly again

3. The next step is making a temporary stencil.  I did this by die cutting an
oval shape on a 4" X 6" piece of white cardstock.
4. Use the negative and lay it on the front of the phone stand.  Use a soft sponge
 and add color to the inside of the oval shape.
5. Stamp the sentiment inside the oval shape.  I used Archival/Jet Black ink.
 It is a good idea to test the stamp, several times, so you get 
good coverage 
when stamped on the wood
6. Remove the temporary stencil and add the border to the top of the phone stand.
7. Outline the oval with a no.2 paint brush and white acrylic paint.
8. Stamp the leaves and ivy to the bottom of the oval.  Paint the inside
 of the leaves with green acrylic paint.
9. Add a paper flower to the center of leaves and splat with metallic paint
 (used to paint wood phone stand with).
10. Stamp small highlights and place a white pearl in the center.

The Wood Phone Stands by Clear Scraps are really fun to create and using
 stamps make really fun patterns for enhancing the phone stand.
