I told you a while back about The Pixie Cottage stamp line. This is an update on my new stamp line sold EXCLUSIVELY at Michelle's Scrapbooking and More. I am on the design team with a great group of exceptionally talented artist and crafts people. I hope I can keep up, I have been deep into paint for the last few months and now I need to get back into "stamp" mode.
The first card I created was a quicky. Hopefully over the next few weeks I can get my creative juices flowing and really come up with something unique. ANYWAY, this stamp was made from a painting I did. The little girl is some what of a self portrait, seeing this as a stamp, kinda freaks me out, but that is a whole other issue ;)
I designed this stamp the same way I sketch all of my girls---- I am going to cut off her head. A little tip I learned from Suziblu, after I sketch and color, off goes the head. NOW, I don't have a thing for the queen of hearts, but when I reattach the head, I can tilt it and give her just a bit of movement. I think it makes my girls look a little more real, and not just staring straight into space.
I used this technique with the card I created. After the girl was water colored I cut off her head, I then reattached the head to the body. I raised her up with pop dots to add dimension. I inked this card like crazy, the print paper is K&Company and the butterflies are stickers from HL. The word stamp is from Clear Designs. The stamp of my little girl is my design from my Southend Girl collection. If you would like to add this stamp to your collection she can only be found at Michelles Scrapbooking and More. If you purchase this stamp, be sure to let me know. I will feature you and your creation right here on my blog, and you may just even receive a little surprise from me ;)
