Blast from the Past!!!

Hello everyone :)

 

Welcome to the LAST stop on the Blast from the Past blog hop!! I'm so in love with all the projects that the team did using our oldie but goodie stamps, and I'm honored to have them all participate and use our images. Give them a big round of applause! Don't forget to comment on each post from the hop, as our prize winner will be randomly selected from one of the blogs :)

Now.. onto my project using a stamp that hasn't seen much love lately!

I had the lovely
to work with!



We recently hosted an altered mousetrap swap, and this is what I used her for! I pulled the mousetrap apart and gessoed all the pieces. Then I colored them with Tattered Angels glimmer mist and Distress Stain.
My stamp is stamped with Ranger's Archival ink in black and colored with Distress Markers. She's then fussy cut and glued to the mousetrap! Before I added any pieces back on I laid down some gel medium and inserted paper circles, e beads and floral beads.Then I glued the spring and trap back together, adorned it with a bit of paper and May Arts ribbon, and highlighted bits and pieces with Luminarte's silks paints!



Thanks so much for coming by!! If you missed any stops here they are again, and don't forget to COMMENT for a chance at the Plate O' Rubber of your choice :)
