Hi there everyone.
I hope you all had a creative and fun weekend. I had a great day over at The Craft Barn on Saturday so thanks to all those who came along; it was lovely to see you!
One of the things I was showing there was working with tissue paper when altering some of the lovely wooden items that The Craft Barn sells. I generally do this when I work with wooden items as it is often difficult to get good stamping results around corners and any routered decorative elements.
So today I thought I'd show you one of the boxes I altered using Katzelkraft stamps.
Then onto the top; you can of course just do the same technique for the lid but I like to add a bit of shine so I cut a piece of chipboard to size. Stamped my images and coloured with the same distress inks used on the box. Using water and a brush I removed colour from the horse to make it stand out more before adding a couple of layers of UTEE. By using a decent thickness board it will stay flat so it's easier to glue down.
These lovely stamps are available direct from France HERE or in the UK they are available exclusively from The Craft Barn.
Have a lovely afternoon everyone and I do hope you have time to create something today.
I'd also like to say hi to my new followers, welcome aboard and I hope you enjoy travelling along with me on my creative journey. I can't believe I'm almost at 300 followers now; thank you one and all; I really appreciate you all. 9 more followers and I'll be having a lovely giveaway to celebrate so do hang around!
Bless you all.
