Stamping on Cork

Well the other day I shared a card that made use of stamping on paint, so today I thought I would share a card I did - stamped on cork.
You can buy sheets or rolls of very thin cork from stationary shops and it is so easy to stamp on and is excellent for those African style cards. Also adds some texture to your card.
Materials: Cream cardstock, black cardstock, cork, African stamps - Local SA Manufacturers, Feather, Gold brads, black brilliance ink pad
Method: Fold cream cardstock to make square 15 x 15 card. Take Black Brilliance ink pad and stamp Cheetah and pots onto cork and trim cheetah to size and mount onto cream and then black cardstock and then to cardfront. Cut out pots and attach to cardfront and stamp word Africa directly onto cardfront. add feather and gold brads.

  1. I've got some cork lying around for some time now, and didn't know what to do with it. Will surely be trying this out ... thanks for sharing the idea.
