Trying Something New

Yesterday I felt in
the mood to work with some fabric. I pulled out a piece of canvas, some white crinoline, Artistic Outposts Serenity stamp set and Alterations Tattered Pinecone die. Uhmmmm... lots of playing going on in my studio, I can tell you. This is the outcome of my first experiment...

I stamped the serenity
image using Archival Jet Black, and the ink seemed to soak right into the canvas... rather like a ghosting effect. I liked it.

I cut a base of
Recollections kraft cardstock, then chose papers from the DCWV Timeless Type 8x8 stack. I decided to fussy cut the glossy roses with an X-acto knife, and edged them with Vintage Photo Distress Stain. I slipped the stamped canvas in behind, then popped up the roses with 3-D foam adhesive.  For a bit of embellishment, I added a Bo Bunny trinket and an Idea-ology bronze metal corner. Definitely different... with a vintage, distressed look.
The Penmaker has been
doing some experimenting of his own. Look what he's created...

Crazy beautiful, isn't it?

It's really surprising
to me that so many people still use fountain pens. I had know idea that they were popular, until he began making these.
I hope you're having
a wonderful Sunday... and for all our US friends... have a fun and safe Memorial Day tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by!

Your experiment is a huge success! I love the effect, and your stitching makes it look finished and perfect.

I am happy that people still use fountain pens, but even if they didn't, they will want to start after seeing pens by THE PENMAKER!
