Howdy folks and welcome to the Club Scrap monthly blog hop!Debby's Page and that you have come to my post in order to be enlightened with amazing artistic talent and a knock out project. Ha ha, just kidding I know you came by to see if I would say anything to make you spit your morning coffee on your computer monitor. Or maybe for a cat picture.
As usual I wanted to come up with a way to participate in the hop without actually using up any of my precious scrapping and crafting supplies. What you don't actually use your paper do you???
I saw THIS IDEA on Pinterest and thought maybe I could recreate it with my Hydrangeas stamps and some cheap thrift store candle holders.
Step one-Hit up your local thrift store for some candle holders or any little glass containers (if you come home with a set of luggage and a new bookcase too this is not my fault but I will worn you it is known to happen-not that I would know anything about that.) The three little holders below were less than .25 cents each.
Step Three-Stamp the image of your choice on the tissue paper. I found after a couple tries that a second generation of the stamping might work better for delicate images like these flowers. See how the top image is just a little too dark and the ink kind of bleeds a bit.
You can continue adding as many images as you would like.
I tired it with a couple different stamps and colors. They didn't turn out perfectly but I do think the stamping on tissue paper is kind of a "if at first you don't succeed thing". I was in more of a hurry up and finish this so you can make supper mode.
Now those of you you know me well know that I'm really not a pink and purple flowery kind of person. I'm more of a red and black NASCAR kind of person? So my final test of this new little craft was this (also from the Hydrangeas UM stamp.)
I hope you enjoyed this stop on the Hop today. Next up is Tiare's Blog!
And just in case you thought I forgot...
