I am going to have a crafty day down here in my basement today as it is very hot and sticky outside and too many mosquitoes. !!! :-(
I recently won a Challenge at SPEEDY FOX & FRIENDS over at the MFP STAMPS blog, and I got my stamp set yesterday :-D It's called "IT'S A COWBOY THING"...
... and it includes this cute itty bitty Foxy stamp, and I couldn't resist using him straight away. !! :-D I made myself a motivational Wall Hanging....
I seem to be obsessed with Rainbows just at present, so this was another play with some of my ink stamps :-)
I found this old rollery thingy in the garage and decided to try it out as a Brayer. It's a bit cracked and lumpy but I like the effect.
Using plain white card, I rollered all the rainbow coloured inks onto it. Shame the yellow sort of disappeared - I didn't 'partial roll' the green and it covered it up :-( Anyhoo - I quite like the effect.
Then I dragged out a NBUS Grid Guide by 'Impression Obsession' ( don't know what you actually DO with this. I got it at a craft show or something yonks ago, and now I can't remember what it was for !!!!).. well, I used it as a stencil to put my faux stitching, doodle frames on there using the 1.25" square grid.
Then I stamped part of the floral image from the Set, by colouring the bits I wanted with a navy Marvy Brush Marker and stamped inside some of the squares.
I stamped the Foxy onto white card and fussy cut round him. He was then mounted in the other squares on foamies. :-)
I printed a sentiment panel and mounted the whole thing on red card and then added some yellow string for hanging.
Ta Dah !!!!
