I'm back over at A Sprinkle of Imagination today for my second guest design spot. I've used the Don't Forget To Fly stamp set by Finnabair. I wanted to stamp a front and back of this image on cotton canvas, with the possibility of stitching them together and making an art doll.
I started by inking the stamp with Versafine Onyx Black except for the sentiment across the middle because I wanted one of the other sentiments, then stamped it onto the canvas piece, then I stamped the sentiment in the gap. For the back view, I re-inked the stamp, this time leaving out the face as well as the sentiment, and stamped that onto the other canvas. I stamped one of the text circles for the back of the head, and one of the other sentiments across the middle.
I added some colour with Distress Inks and a paintbrush, and decided it would now be a pincushion or just a hanging 'thing', so off I trotted to the local craft store for some wadding, and stitched the two pieces together, using a length of giant ricrac for the loop, then I frayed the edges. Here's the back view of the finished article:
Thanks for having me, ASOI!
