I had Stamp Club last week. It’s always so much fun to get together with the gals and make projects. For this club, I focused three of the four projects on the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch and coordinating stamp sets, including the Cookie Cutter Halloween. I adore this cute little scarecrow guy!!!
This is actually the door prize that I gave out at the workshop. Each time we meet, I like to give away a little something just to let my friends know how much I appreciate them.
I stamped the scarecrow and crow with Basic Black Archival ink on watercolor paper, and then I watercolored them with an Aqua Painter and various colors of ink listed below. It’s easy to do this by giving your stamp pad a little squeeze and then using the ink that pools on the lid. You can also use a little re-inker on the lid for more saturated color.
After punching out my scarecrow, I layered him over a bunch of strands of burlap ribbon that I had un-raveled. I thought it sort of looked like hay.
To create my “box”, I used the Envelope Punch Board. I made an over sized envelope first. Then, I used the scoring knife to add an extra fold to give my envelope a little height.
I used some Pumpkin Pie Cotton Ribbon to wrap the box. This ribbon is still available in the Clearance Rack!!!
Here’s a closer look it case you’d like to copy the watercoloring.
