So many items on my "to do" list this week (like kitting for Stamp Asylum classes in Plano), but I carved out enough time today to step into the work room and have a little creative time.
I started with one of the little boards I get at my local Michaels store. Same kind of board I used when I made this. For the project today I started by painting the sides and edges of the board in Frayed Burlap Distress Paint.
I wanted to stamp on the center of the doily so I traced the shape on a piece of tracing paper then cut the center away to create a mask.
I painted the Letterpress word found. Gosh I love these little letters!
I wanted to add another touch of whimsy so I inked a small piece of Sticky Back Canvas then used red thread to stitch X's. Once I was done stitching, I just peeled off the backing and added it to the panel.
A bit more detail to the top.
Dear Vial Labels how I love you...
and he's done.
Love how the Letterpress worked out as a way to ground him to the board. But I think the addition of the red X's on Sticky Back Canvas is my favorite part.
now carry on,
