Made Up Geisha

Just want to share a layout I made recently for Pinoy Scrapbookers's challenge called "stamp attack". I love stamps. No, I take that back. I am addicted to stamps so I could not let this challenge pass me by.

As the title says, the layout should include stamped images as embellishments. But there's a catch, you have to use at least one stamped image from a non-professional manufactured stamp! In short you have to make your own stamp image!!! This one really made me think hard. Here's what I did ...
  1. I cut a piece of flowered-design thick lace and attached it to a wine cork.
  2. To create a distance between the fabric and the cork, I used pop-up glue dot.
  3. Apply ink { for this project I used Dew Drop - Brilliance in Pearl Thyme} to the fabric as usual and here it is .... a flower stamp!

Have a great work week!
