Animal Fun - Tiddly Inks Blog Hop

Animal Fun - Tiddly Inks Blog Hop

Happy Thursday everyone! Welcome to Hillbilly Rooster Farms blog. Today we're having some animal fun with Tiddly Inks Bog Hop.

I've chosen to do Christy's Snail Mail Wryn. I printed her on to X-Press It paper, then coloured her with Copic markers.

I created a postage stamp collage for my background paper. Using repositionable adhesive spray, I positioned old, used stamps across a piece of 8.5x11 cardstock. Once happy with my layout, I coated it with 2 layers of Modge Podge. I have tons of stamps from friends around the world, and friends and family at home. Finally I found a way to show them off, instead of them collecting dust in boxes. I eventually cut this down to 7.5x7.5 for my background. I used basic black cardstock, cut 8x8 as a mat to fit inside the frame. Using Washi tape with the Airmail stripes, I created a .25" border on the black cardstock, allowing me to place my postage stamp collage within the "framed" stripes.

 

I printed a postcard on plain white cardstock, added the mailing address and one of the smallest stamps I could find onto it. Then, using a post mark stamp from the Recollections Vintage Ads set, I stamped lightly on top of the postage stamp. I stamped the sentiment "having a great time" in Black Versacolor Cubes ink, embossed it with clear powder and used Walnut Stain Distress Ink to give it an "older" feel to it. I used a Fiskars corner punch to add detail to the sentiment. I matted both Wryn and the postcard with black cardstock, as well as the sentiment, once again using the corner punch to match it.

 

Wryn now sits in a lovely shadow box frame in our living room. I hope you enjoyed your stay and will see you at the next blog!
