This week's share combines a card created for the Less Is More Challenge (a "tall" card based on this sketch), and a mini tutorial on removing unwanted words from a stamped image...
Stamps:smARTworks from Spring Fling
Card Size: 3.75" x 8.5"
Punches/Dies: Zig Zag trim (Sizzix)
Coloring: Markers & Prismacolor pencils with OMS
Other: Stickles, Dimensional glaze
The bunny image on the card actually stamps like this.
See the words on the Bunny's hat? Well, when smARTworks acquired the engraving plates from Angi-b & Company, they were found to include several of these pre-labeled images. Not being a big fan of this type of thing, however, I've pretty much been letting these stamps sit unused -- a shame because except for the labling, I really like the images... Finally discovered a solution:
1. After stamping the pre-labeled image on project, stamp a second image on scrap.
2. Working slightly inside the outline of image on scrap, cut out the worded section.
3. Using the cut-out as a template, trace it's shape onto the paper of choice. Cut out shape.
4. Check the fit on the full-size image, and trim as needed.
5. Adhere over corresponding area on full-size image.
Note: If coloring of section is desired, it can be done before or after the final step. I happen to prefer laying down a base coat of color before, then adding highlighting/shading after.
Take a look at the before and after of another pre-labled image from the same set... This "cover-up" was cut from colored stock, then overstamped with words from Ladybugs...
P.S. As for my being able to participate in the LIMC while still limiting posts to once a week -- Sometimes the two will be combined like this time, and sometimes, when I have something additional to share, the two posts will be made on the same day with the one showcasing the challenge card being chat-free. My new target day for posting each week is Thursday.
