Stamp Launch day 2...
I hope you all liked the hand painted shirt I wore that night I really enjoyed the show, don't forget I am back on Hochanda today at 9am, 12pm, 4pm and last chance at 7pm. ! I thought today I would show you another fabric painted project however this is a card. It great when you can mix your crafts so the idea of using stamps on fabric just makes them more versatile and better value for me!
To make this one I stamped the flowers from the Peony elements clear stamp set onto plain Calico ( bought from Sew Simple at there weekend) using jet black archival ink. I stamped the smaller peony twice and added a couple of extra leaves and the smallest of the flowers. Next I simply coloured them in using the fab new Cosmic Shimmer Fabric paints I used the pink, pearl, the silver and green mixed to make all the shades shown ( sorry I don't know the formal names for these as I just have tester pots!)
I placed this on a larger mat of Kraft card , punched holes at the corners and added some brads form my stash to attach to the card. I then added a thin layer of Baby Pink foundation card around this to match the pink in the paints!
I stamped the sentiment, again from the peony set, onto a scrap of the Kraft card and cut it out with the smaller ribbon threader die form the Spellbinders set I have on the show. Instead of threading the ribbon I added a flag cut piece behind this so it shows through the slots. I added thin border of the pink.
I added a panal of the Kraft card embossed with the rambling roses A4 embossing folder which I shaded with Frosted Mink colour cloud blending ink again with a pink mat.
Finally I made up the card as shown adding more of the ribbon and a few layers of the pink and Kraft card.
I hope you can tune in today for one of the shows.
