It's a Girl Thing

Hi there,

the amazingly talented Shery is releasing two beautiful new stamp sets today over on the STAMPlorations Blog and this is my project using the brand new STAMPlorations It's a Girl Thing - Sunshine set:

  • cut out a CUTplorations Stitched Tag from watercolor paper
  • create a background using Distress Oxide Inks (Tumbled Glass, Bundled Sage, Salty Ocean) and a Blending Brush
  • add some splatters with Pearlized Water
  • stamp the sentiment and some flowers from the STAMPlorations It's a Girl Thing - Sunshine set with Versamark and heat-emboss them with WOW! Bright White Super Fine embossing powder
  • add some more splatters with Distress Spray Stain Pumice Stone
  • stamp the script from the STAMPlorations Mixed Media Elements set with Hero Arts Shadow Ink Silver for even more texture
  • ink up the edges of the tag with Distress Oxide Ink Salty Ocean and a Mini Ink Blending Tool
  • dye a piece of torn seam binding with Distress Stain Salty Ocean and thread it through the hole of the tag
