Today I have something very special for you to see. I have been wanting to introduce you to these rubber stamps since I started blogging. They are my favorite stamps from a huge collection at Stampotique . Although they look "Halloweenish" I use them all year long. Stampotique has a designer's blog where they post projects made with their rubber stamps (http://stampotiqueoriginals.blogspot.com/).
Here's how I made it:
First, cut out your paper to the size you need and collect all your stamps and embellishments. These stamps were purchased at Michael's the arts and crafts store.
If I were to describe my relationship with Michael's, I'd say he's like that "bad boy" boyfriend you had in Highschool. You know the one. You know you SHOULDN'T date him, as the consequences might be dire, leaving an arm and a leg there (for international readers, that means leaving all your money there). BUT! you just can't help but visit him because you're......IN LOVE. And if mom said you can't date him, well, fooie, you just will do as you please because you're.....IN LOVE.
And I know I'm not the only girl In love, I once heard a lady say, "Helloooo Lover" right in front of the store! And he teases you with those 40% off coupons, oh yes he does! and those coupons sure look good.
Ahm, back to reality, here are the stamps from Michael's:
Tattered Angels, sprayed all over my white paper, after all the rubber stamping had been done:
Marvy Uchida, I used this on the cat to give him fur. It's very easy to use, just color in the area and use a heat gun to warm it up, the paint will puff up like velvet:
Here's my project images covered by my scrap images:
Now I can go ahead and spritz and rubber stamp on top and the image underneath will not be affected. Once I'm done rubber stamping the background, I can remove the scrapped cut outs and the image underneath will be ready for me to color.
You can see that the paper the girls are on is pink, that's because I sprayed them with the Tatterd Angels spritz. It gave the paper a pink tint and glimmer shine.
I also used these cool non-smear chalks to add color to the three Divas:
Hope you liked this project, let me know if you will give it a try so I can come over and see.
hope you have a scary weekend!
