Drunken Stampers...Twisted Fairytales
So here is how the Fairy God-SOCK-Monkey of not death was created. Not WHY mind you, only HOW. The new Spun Sugar Distress Stain applied to tag (and just btw...Distress Stains ROCK!!! Are you listening Ranger? We need the other 24 colors...NOW!) and dried with the heat gun. Then Dusty Concord sponged on top and the sides, then slapped some more Spun Sugar Stain on there. There are actually three layers of the stamped swirly, you just can't really see 'em. First layer Spun Sugar, second layer Milled Lavender (umm mostly, the stamp wasn't exactly clean, but it actually looks pretty cool in person) and the third layer is Dusty Concord after stamping off onto a scrap paper then stamping on the tag. The stamp was made with foam using Tim Holtz's fabulous flourish die. Here is a closer-up of the words:
SU! stamp that was stamped with Archival ink onto sticky back canvas and colored with Distress inks using a blender pen. She was then viciously cut apart ('cause in the original stamp she's sittin' down) and stuck onto card stock with a pretty glittery dress cut on the Cricut with DCWV's glitter stack paper. Her crown, wings, and magic wand are grungeboard variously covered with Distress Stains, Distress Stickles (which don't show up in the pics, but really and truly are there), and gold paint dabber. And more SU! bling for her necklace and crown.
