Tim Holtz has just released his new book out, The Compendium of Curiosity Vol.2. Studio L3 has started a weekly Compendium Vol 2 challenge working our way thru the book. I have never actually completed a challenge like this so it should be interesting but I am excited.
This first week is Custom Foam Stamps. We have been asked to NOT explain the technique on our blogs (it is on page 66 of the book) so I shall try to keep my month shut. I will add that I added an extra step to the process using a sharp stick to impress details into my foam stamp. The effort ended up looking much like a hand-carved stamp.
I made a nest with shredded paper and glued it down with Glossy Accents.
The bird is a chipboard piece from Maya Road- painted. I added a rhinestone eye and some rub on details.
|This butterfly was "carved" to add the spots and lines.|
|I love how the "carving" looks on the leaves.|
The butterflies were all embossed and fussy cut.
|The detail on the butterflies is evident. |
