Well, it’s Monday, and time for another Stamps R Us challenge. This week we are fortunate to be sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps, and they are offering a very generous prize for one lucky winner. We would like your cards/projects to feature “In the kitchen”, it could be food, beverages etc… just have fun with it! We were also given some images from Jodie of Bugaboo stamps to work with, and I chose “Ruby”.
I chose Ruby because of the “glass of beer” in her hands, so that I could use liquid applique on the head of the beer. I colored the image with Copics, and then used black flock on her boots for a suede look. The designer paper is from the Cappella Paper pad by Basic Grey. the sentiment is a rubber stamp from Kraftin’ Kimmie.
I’ve been trying to use up scraps, and bits of things left over from other projects, and I have lots of embroidery thread, so I’ve been crocheting flowers to use some of the thread up. This flower is from a tutorial on Crochet Pattern Central, and it’s a ten petal popcorn flower. I used a very small hook, and three strands of embroidery floss for the flower, then added a green gem for the center.
Here is a close-up so you can actually see the “popcorn” part of the flower. You can use crochet cotton for the flowers, but you will actually have more color choices with embroidery floss.
