"One of the beauties of Stampotique stamps is even though there are 18 amazing artists designing our rubbery goodness and their images work so well together it's great to use a lot of stamps for one project, I often do.
So this week, I am challenging myself too and inviting you to use just one stamp . . . wondering off scratching head and rubbing chin . . . this is going to be SO hard to choose!!
Most importantly, have fun, Sam x
My friend J has fallen in love with Little Hoo-Hoo and asked would i make her a tag she can use on her tote bag or key chain.
Stamped Little Hoo-Hoo onto lightweight cotton using a Versacraft Ink Pad then painted him with DecoArt multi-surface paint in Red Barn, red being J’s favourite colour. Painted the owl in Bronze Metallic and Rich Gold Metallic Pan Pastels.
After painting the image i went over with a Uni Pin black pen to bring back all the detail, these pens are waterproof.
Added a think interlining to give the tag some weight and added a purple back. Added the red spotty ribbon and then added an eyelet using a Cropodile.
Used purple cotton for both the bobbin and top colour, this mated the material on the back of the tag.
I always singe the edges of material with a lighter very carefully after it has been sewn!!! This helps the edges not to fray.
I hope you like the tag, my friend will get this Sunday, she doesn’t read my blog so it’s ok to post lol.
Thanks for dropping by.
