I'm honored to be hosting a true friend's baby shower!
Here are the invitations:
Here are some images of the process:
|Some turned out better than others...|
|You can see where I modified the block, and I tried to show this by blacking out the stars on the front. I then took a trio of cut stars and glued them to a cork for a mini-stamp.|
- Hand-carved deer stamp from pink Speedball rubber and Stampin Up! tools. Stamp inked with Tim's Mixed Media palette in Vintage Photo and "kissed" onto an old wood-grain stamp by All Night Media
- The stitched circle die is from Autumn at Sew Paper Paint; I wrote the greeting with a Micron pen... not sure which width this is-- I tried a few different weights, but liked these with the finer tip.
- The stars are from a Dyan Reaveley Dylusions stamp that I love, but seldom use... until now! I finally realized I needed to modify the stamp to work for me! I cut some of the stars off to make the stars more free-form in shape, instead of the rectangular group that they were. This was inked with Story Sky DI, tapped-off once then used twice in the process.
- The pine sprays were hand-brushed with the Ranger waterbrush in Forest Moss DI. I recently purchased two new waterbrushes, but they are still in their package. I still wonder: why so expensive???
Thank you for joining us at Shopping Our Stash this week! I am interested to see the stash items you find! C'mon... I know you all have foxes and deer and bears... oh my!
