Hand Made By Me!

The current challenge at Try It On Tuesday is "Handmade By You"... so I decided to complete a project using a stamp I carved.

Supplies and notes:
  • The stamp was carved with the blue rubber... I won't be buying that again.  Too soft and crumbly.  I carved it with Stampin' Up' tools.  This is my favorite quote from Modest Mouse.
  • The box was made from an old library catalog card, painted with various Distress Paints and then some Liquitex glass bead texture paste and some Martha Stewart glitter was added to the edges. The reverse was sprayed with Dylusions in Vibrant Turquoise.
  • I made the flower from some tissue that came with some won (and purchased) stamps from Inspired By Stamping.  I used Tim's Tattered Florals die and assembled the petals with a Recollections brad. 
  • The screen in the background was cut from Heidi Swapp stencil paper using Tim's Arch Frame and sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist on the front, stamped with a stamp from Michael's on the reverse. 
Cool little alter, huh?
