Julie: using the *New* Alice Palace puffin stamp

Hello again.

Have you seen the new Crafty Individuals stamps Jean has in stock? They're designed by Alice Palace and they're are a fun new addition to the Crafty Individuals collection.
For my first play with them I chose to work with the lovely crowned puffin character:
And here's what I did with him: 
  • stamped him directly on to patterned paper using a dark grey dye-based ink pad;
  • coloured over the top with coloured pens to help define his beak, cheeks, feet etc;
  • then added some sparkle using Stickles.
And ... as he comes complete with his own speech bubble I gave him a little greeting to send as a 'get well' to a friend:
And here's how he turned out:

And for the full range of new Alice Palace designs [which includes hares, geese, a robin, a bulldog ... and more ...] you can visit here.
Go see which is your favourite ... using a terrible coordinating pun for your sentiment is entirely optional!

Purple Onion...

Have some new stamps...a cute bird and a lovely heart banner..
The following instructions are just for getting you started, for making a base to which you can add any other bits and pieces...for example, rub-ons, gems, further collage items, glitter and any stamped images you like.

Paint your canvas with a layer of gesso.Take any mask and a credit card... scrape a layer of gesso over the mask, let it dry.

take a piece of paper from a book and glue at the top, wipe or brush some colour onto the paper and the textured bottom.Wipe another colour around the edges.

Cut out and add the house, stamp, colour and cut out the bird and the banner.

Use a piece of florists wire as the banner string, poke the ends through the canvas, use foam pads to stick on the hearts, stitch through the hearts and over the wire to hang the hearts.

add words of your choice.....
Everything you need (except the canvas) can be found here....
