Darkroom Door Projects & Helmar Products = Fun Designs

This week Helmar and  Darkroom Door have partnered  for a 'Challenge Week' where artists use Helmar adhesives, Darkroom Door stamps and paper products to create projects to inspire you!
I made this simple project first and was so pleased with how it turned out.
Next I had to make another design using the stamp set I received,I even used the stamp just as it came instead of cutting it apart! I loved how it turned out.
Let me share a few steps along the way.
I used the following  Helmar and DarkRoom Door products

Wings - Rubber Stamps (Cling Foam Included)             
Wings - Rubber Stamps      Kimono Vol 2 - Filmstrips   Kimono - Wordstrips - NEW

Craft Glue 1.7 fl.oz.                      450 Quick Dry Adhesive 1.7 fl.oz.
 Craft Glue 1.7 fl.oz.     450 Quick Dry Adhesive 1.7 fl.oz.

Quickfix Adhesive Runner
    Zapdots Clear Round 1/4"
Decoupage & Craft Paste 8.45 fl.oz. Decoupage & Craft Paste 8.45 fl.oz.
This was how the filmstrips came and how I cut them apart and matted each section with white card stock.
I surely could have used my tape runner but decided I really wanted the strength of Helmar Craft Glue-It is one of my very favorite wet glues.

See I knew I was going to use my crop-O-dile and add eyelets so I wanted a very strong adhesive for the entire matted images.
 I used the phrases and some dogwood flowers and attached these with zapdots and 450 to adhere.
The  last Helmar product I used was the Gemstone glue...perfect for holding the pearls attached

For my second project I used the stamp set just as it was...One set was stamped on my background and a second image in Red, and a third image in Brown. I chose to cut out a few images from the extra color and applied the decoupage paste  and sprinkled with a glitter.

Here are my images drying- it dried much faster then any other glitter glue I have used before.
I enjoyed the combination of both Helmar and Dark Room Door products.
