Love

Hello fellow Crafters,

and happy Wednesday to you ! Over at the Stampotique Designers Challenge blog the theme this week is 'Love & Hearts' and was set by Kristen. This is what she said :

"February 14th is Valentines day, so why not create something that is surrounded with hearts and love..."

I made a tag :


I recently purchased this chicken stamp called 'Henny Penny' and wanted to use it.. 
I started with a Gelli Print and stamped it with 'Fax to Wolfgang' and 'Daniel's Hearts'. I coloured the hearts lightly with colour pencils. Next I stamped 'Love' and 'Henny Penny' on white card stock. Henny Penny was also reversed; I used a flat bit of rubber for this. So you stamp your image on this rubber and then use the rubber to stamp the image in reverse. The chickens and the 'love' stamp were coloured, clear embossed and cut out. I adhered them to the tag. I then doodled two lines around the tag with a fine tipped pen and lastly I coloured a chipboard heart with Copic Markers and clear embossed it before adhering it to another piece of the same gelli print which was also lightly coloured with pencils before adhering it to the tag. A little bit of ribbon finished it off...

Why not join us this week and make something too. Maybe you will win a $30 voucher ! Just remember NO digi's and only one entry per person ! 

I used the following stamps : 


Thanks for stopping by !! 

Hope you like it ......

  8. Adorable and vibrant "Henny Penny" colors, Corrie! Quite a technique using the flat rubber to capture the reverse of your stamp. I have to try that--and soon! Great tag!

  9. That Henny Penny stamp, for some reason, makes me smile!
    People could easily believe that you have two stamps facing in different directions. I have tried this technique. I have tried it by using a brayer and the one I use most often is stamping onto tissue paper.
    The way you work with colour it is as though there is an inner glow. Amazing.
