When stuck while making a project, it's often adding texture that gets me rolling again. But lace or fabric is often the last thing i think about when searching for texture. So, I thought it would be fun to have all of you lovely peeps make art using fabric or lace. And all those fab creations would make one awesome inspiration board!I decided that today I would make a tag. I began by spritzing my craft mat with Dylusions inks in Pure Sunshine and Fresh Lime (I watered them down just a bit). I stamped Miss Snottie onto another tag, colored her with Ranger Distress Markers and crayons.
I used a technique shared with me by fellow blogger Corrie Herriman, and that is to clear emboss the stamped image for a dramatic shine and color enhancement! You can visit Corrie's blog here. Tell her "Kay sent me!"Next, I stamped the image a second time onto my original tag, so you could see any tiny bits of the image I lost in cutting it out. Then, I adhered Ms. Snottie over that. She needed a title, so I made her a DIVA for today! I still needed more background, so I used France Papillon's new Design Cube!
Now, to that challenge! I have had cheese cloth for about 3 years and have never used it. Since it does classify as "fabric," I decided to use it today. I have used it here to soften the look of the flower against the tag. Here's Ms. Snottie:
I had fun making the tag today, which is the whole point of the Stampotique Designers' challenges. If you would like to take part, all you need is a rubber stamp (does not have to be a Stampotique Originals' stamp) and have some fun. You can create anything you like! At the end of each month, two lucky winners are drawn and receive a $30 gift certificate for Stampotique Originals products!
I appreciate you visit today. Please leave a comment so that I will know you were here (and because they make me feel good, too!).
