It has been such a busy summer that I have not had much crafting or computer time. I did manage to find some time to do a little creating. Over at Dolce Stamps and Cards we are playing with JustRite Stamps this month. The Dolce Girls have been cooking up some fabulously inspiring projects!!
I love to alter things, especially practical things and since my memory has gone the wayside, I always keep a notebook in my purse. I can usually find some inexpensive ones at the dollar store to alter.
These JustRite Birdhouse Set were just the right size to embellish the front of a notebook! Very versatile stamps! I stamped the image in Black Stazon (so the ink won't run when I water color) and water colored the image with marker, by scribbling on an acrylic block and picking up the ink with a water pen. I layered the image on a couple of complimentary Spellbinders Dies. I threaded some ribbon through the holes in the Lacey Oval. I cut my sentiment out the the Spellbinders die that comes in the JustRite Tag Making Set. Sponged everything in Memento Rich Cocoa, except the Green is sponged with Ranger's Pine Needles. I colored over the stars with a Sakura Glaze pen. This was finished off with some Kaiser Rhinestones. Whenever I create something that needs to be sturdy, I always use Score Tape. I find it is the best adhesive to keep my projects together.
