Hi there. It’s Tobi Crawford here again with a Blogstar post starring these fab products available at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores and here:
To make the focal image really stand out I pulled out my Copic airbrush system and a circle die cut and added a special touch..
First, die cut the image. Keep the die on the image and grab your airbrushing tool. (If you don’t have an airbrush, or don’t want to use it, use distress inks and a foam applicator. I do that all the time and it works just as well!) Use a light color and concentrate on the outer edge of the shape.
Remove the die cut and you have a beautiful rim around the edge. It’s kind of like matting your image, but easier!
One last tip. If you have a smaller area for your sentiment than you anticipated, why not snip (carefully) the stamp apart?
Initially I was going to stamp the sentiment as shown above, but it was just a bit too wide. So now I have all of these other options with this ONE sentiment stamp!
(Stampendous Note: Tobi’s stamp was one of our Cling Mounted stamps, so she didn’t have any trouble snipping it. Jo Ann Fabric and Crafts carries this stamp in the Wood Mounted version. If you’d like the Cling Version visit our website HERE
